The Burberry 11 – F/W 2014 Male Debuts and Exclusives

Another season, another set of exclusives. This Fall 2014 menswear season, the Burberry Prorsum team and casting directors Barbara Nicoli & Leila Ananna selected a new group of guys for the new collection titled “A Painterly Journey.” As the most important and influential casting of LC:M, it is a prime place for new faces to make their first mark and set the tone early on for the fashion weeks to come. Always supportive of local talent, UK natives Oli Green, Robbie McKinnon, Hamish Quigley and Darwin Gray made their runway debuts here. Four debut faces were not British—new faces Arnis Cielava from Latvia, Marten Wolters from Germany, Roel Nabuurs from the Netherlands and Andreas Lindquist from Denmark. In addition, three models from D1 Models in London were on worldwide exclusive for the British brand. 19-year-old Tarun Nijjer was chosen for the honors of opening and closing the show. Callum Ball, a current face of Burberry, and a worldwide exclusive last season, walked the show once again for his second runway ever.  Lastly, Freddie Dennis from D1 Models made his worldwide debut for the iconic British label at just 16 years of age.

Pascal Millet SS14

Pascal Millet’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection was the result of a reflection on a woman traveling in South America, “from the beaches of Punta del Este to the streets of Buenos Aires, from cities such as Sao Paulo to relaxing haciendas.” Starting off with a neutral black, white and grey palette, we were then surprised by a boost of cheerful color—here, the show’s title of “Tequila Sunrise” definitely made sense with the bright pink, orange and light blue. One-shouldered silhouettes, cropped tops, cutouts and sheer fabrics were the feminine underpinnings of the season’s new offering for various occasions in the life of this “modern young woman.”

Hexa by Kuho SS14

No question about what designer Jung Kuho envisioned as his Spring 2014 Hexa by Kuho woman. Titled “A Feminine Warrior,” the audience could surely guess the name without looking at the show program. Kuho played with this “oxymoron” by blending in sporty casual elements such as sweatshirts and culottes. To convey this warrior woman, he incorporated an eye-catching traditional Korean pattern and 3-D printing on a very earthy palette. The interaction between tough fabrics such as leather and lighter ones such as chiffon was also a leading reinforcement of the designer’s conviction to create this distinct woman. But if this was not yet obvious, heavy heels and self-evident headgear were on hand to illustrate.

The Burberry 3 – S/S 2014 Debuts & Exclusives

September brought us a big surprise in regards to one of the most important runway castings. For the first time in casting history, the Burberry team and casting directors Barbara Nicoli and Leila Ananna selected three models of color as Spring 2014 exclusives. Although this season proved to be an improvement in diversity, the casting landscape has not yet changed enough to say it was not a surprise to see a trio of non-Caucasian models make up the selective group of true runway debuts and exclusives. Coventry girl Neelam Johal (Models 1) was a worldwide exclusive and as a face of the Spring 2014 campaign, she is also the first-ever Indian face to represent the brand. Londoner Maddie Seisay (Elite London) was also a worldwide exclusive although this was not her first ever walk down a runway. American newcomer Kyra Green (IMG) from Harlem was the third face out and the finale leader. After her Burberry debut, she was later seen at Philipp Plein and Iceberg. These three new faces were accompanied by many of the season’s other new faces (i.e. Matilda Lowther, Astrik Eika) as well as the expected Burberry British crew. Always one to support their home talent and big names, it was no surprise to see faces such as Cara Delevingne, Malaika Firth, Camilla Babbington, Sam Rollinson, Edie Campbell, Charlotte Wiggins and Jourdan Dunn.

Jimmy Choo SS14

Jimmy Choo products have been coveted by women all over the world. Whether on the heels of The First Lady or supermodel Kate Moss, the luxury line has been designing shoes catering to different lifestyles while still holding to a strong and sensual femininity core that its wearers have in common. For the SS14 season, the label looked to nature for inspiration – focusing on exotic finishes to reinterpret Jimmy Choo classics. Set in an Amazonian backdrop, there were colorful flashes of feathers and textural skins adorning the sleek and glamorous heels that Jimmy Choo is so famously known for. The collection also introduced us to sensible slip-on sneakers and polished flats as relatively new shoe types for the brand. Expect to see this collection to make a splash all over the red carpet in the coming months.

Beyond Closet SS14 Presentation

The Spring/Summer 2014 season was the debut of Korean label Beyond Closet at NYFW. Going against a gym backdrop, the clothes were a mix of tailored pieces offset by casual sportswear. New designer Tae Wong stuck mostly to primary colors, perhaps to further emphasize the school-like aspects of gym class. There were clean basic pieces that blended well to layer over relaxed sweats and youthful knits. Keep an eye out for the new brand; if this presentation is any indication of what the label offers, it will be versatile pieces that can be used in many different ways for the modern man.
