Blue Les Copains Spring Summer 2016

Blue Les Copains SS 2016, NYFW SS2016

Blue Les Copains Spring/Summer 2016 features a distinct nod to boho seventies chic, illustrated with 15 classic sportswear looks in a variety of juxtaposed materials from poplin paired with suede, to deep-dyed denim and chiffon and perforated leather. The collection starts with dark indigo accented by pops of red, blue and crisp whites. Bold geometric patterns and daisy prints reflect a retro inspiration, further accented by scattered suede fringe detailing, silk handkerchiefs and undone laced-up pieces. The collection transitions into graphic black and white pieces with hints of khaki, tempering the season’s pronounced color palette and brought to life by brocades and bold stripes. Structured jackets, expertly tailored wide-leg cropped pants, and fashionable handbags complete the Blue Les Copains offering with a modern affirmation toward non-conformity and effortless ease of wear.

This NYFW presentation styled by Natalie Joos took place in the lavish penthouse lounge of the Boom Boom Room at the Top of the Standard. Guests including Julia Restoin Roitfeld and Hilary Swank sipped champagne and noshed on light bites while taking in the Italian luxury label's sophomore RTW collection against stunning views of Manhattan. Fresh and minimal hair and makeup by Paul Andrew and MAC Cosmetics respectively were an apt complement to these stylishly laid back looks. I tend to enjoy this type of fashion show format more than formal runway shows because you can really get a good look at the clothes and I definitely marveled at the wearability of these pieces as well as how easily they could be incorporated into one's existing wardrobe. And I might be coveting a denim trench now.

What do you think of this collection? Do any looks stand out to you?

I love all the off-the-shoulder pieces. I think they're just so flattering:) But my fave has to be that red jacket....just beautiful.:)

I loved the third-to-last outfit, with the clashing prints :-)

Ivana Split said...

I think my outfit is the one where pants and top have a different print, because I do like a good mix of prints! Very interesting collection...very elegant but there is just enough colour and pattern( and even a bit of fringes). I really like the culottes and how they're worked into this collection...the coats are also superb. They are pieces in this outfit that seem like they won't fit in at first glance, but really the collection as a whole is wonderful and all items seem to match so well...I wouldn't mind having it all in my closet ha ha ha.....

Finally a wearable collection! Most fashion shows make me scratch my head because they are not practical for day to day wardrobe so this is such a refreshing change!

I quite like the off shoulder look, very romantic and feminine

Stanislava E. said...

3 times WOW, Rowena! First for the show - I prefer this type of shows than runaways too. It's way easier to see the details and to feel the atmosphere the designers wanted to create. Second wow for the collection itself. I do like it a lot! And third wow for the photos! They are great and I must say you should attend more fashion shows and to share the photos you take with us! Have a nice day ahead, Rowena!

So jealous that you got to go! I've been noticing a lot of brands are doing presentations instead of shows now, I have to admit I like the idea of shows better, but presentations seem a lot better for actually seeing the clothes.

My favorite is that red off the shoulder top with the suede pencil skirt.
