We’ve caught a glimpse behind the scenes of West 14th Spring/Summer 2014 collection ‘Freedom’ and just had to share…
Having been waiting for the new West 14th collection to arrive since what feels like forever…it is finally here! Summer leather has taken on an all new meaning with the arrival of the beautiful new collection ‘Freedom’.
West 14th’s founder and designer, Violeta Tentomas drew her inspiration for the collection from the stylish survival of Manhattan’s summer heat – a collection of pieces that moves seamlessly from office chic to rooftop cocktails. An essential in the city that never sleeps!
Breathability and transparency, two words not often associated with leather, were strong focus points in the creation of the summer pieces. The result? Amazing new leather techniques that redefine the traditional fabric boundaries. Perforated leather, punched holes, innovative silhouettes, wild bursts of colour and print and contrasting splices of flowing luxe silk are just some of the ways the talented Violeta has bought new life into summer leather.
Let’s not forget the inclusion of the quintessential leather jacket too – a wardrobe essential no matter what the season is. This collection sees the new ‘Ludlow‘ Moto leather jacket come into play. This classic biker style in a slightly oversized shape is crafted from buttery soft leather and is the perfect companion to all your summer dresses!
Here is a sneek peek behind the scenes of the gorgeous lookbook shoot.
