Cynthia Rowley RTW Spring 2015

Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015, CRlandia, NFFW

I had the pleasure of attending the Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015 NYFW presentation as a guest of Birchbox, the exclusive backstage sponsor. The show took place on Tuesday, 09/09/14 at the Swiss Institute in Soho. Incidentally this was also the space that hosted the Chanel Little Black Jacket Exhibition. Cynthia Rowley's design aesthetic has consistently been fresh, feminine and whimsical and this collection was no exception with the addition of a modernized 60's/70's vibe. The models were presented atop pedestals in splashy graphic pastel prints and large scale cutout appliqués and floral lace on swingy trapeze dresses and tunic and flared pants sets. The presentation dubbed #CRlandia also included the designer's activewear line which featured a selection of modern athletic wear that juxtaposed sporty function with pretty details like metallic gold flowers and lettering to scallops on a pair of running shorts. See the entire look book.

Thanks to Birchbox, I also had access to the backstage beauty. Meet me back here on Monday to get the details on the makeup and hair! I totally forgot to snap a pic of my outfit but it did include these Pumas and my Frankenstein ankle brace. Sadly I've started wearing it again but that's a story for another day.

My favorites were the black floral lace top with the racing stripe flares and the periwinkle blue coat. What do you think of this collection? Any of the looks catch your eye?

All photos by me.

Well done Rowena, Im very happy for you, it must have been a dream! And the collection is totally wonderful, love the patterns and the soft colors and you know, is the first time I can check it out well. That top is also my fav, what a shame you couldnt shoot your outfit, sorry you had to wear again the ankle brace but I know you must have been lovely the same. Looking forward to the backstage snaps as they are my favs in a show. Have a lovely weekend, hugs! xo

This must have been a wonderful experience for you. There are many outfits which appeal to me here. Although I love the red and white I know I would be more likely to wear the softer pastel shades. Love the 60s dresses.

Ahhh oh my gosh that must have been such an amazing experience! How did you get the opportunity to get sponsored by Birchbox!? And your photos are so so beautiful! I love all of the pastel colors, cut outs, and unexpected hint of sportswear! I think my favorite piece is the marble look in the 3rd photo, with the tie around the waist--I would totally wear it, even though I know I couldn't pull it off haha xx

Wow! Must be an amazing time for you, Rowena *_^ So happy that you got to attend the show!

All right, I don't quite get the footwear though, but I do like the whimsical aspect of the collection. My favourite pieces would be the black floral dress in the second pic and yes, the blue periwinkle blue coat!

Some how, the black lace top seems a little too big for the model, though it looks nice on its own:))

Hope you will enjoy the rest of your up-coming weekend! yay

Big hugs,
Jeann

Ann said...

Fabulous collection.

I am really always a huge fan of her designs as they are really fun and have that 60's vibe to them! It really must have been so much fun to have been to the show. Have a good Sunday!

How fortunate of you to be able to attend the Cynthia Rowling Presentation. I love all those designs with soft drapey look. How unfortunate though that you have to start wearing your ankle brace. I'm still recovering from my sprained ankle for you to wear an ankle brace yet again, the injury or pain must have been terrible. I hope your ankle heals nicely.
