M.I.S.S. NYFW: Alexandre Herchcovitch FW2010 Channels Luxe Russian Boheme


I have to admit that it took me a while to get this post written because I could not help but obsess over Alexandre Herchcovitch’s collection. The collection was filled with inspiration pulled from traditional folk costume of Russia and it’s neighboring Georgia, Armenia and Turkey. The old-world looks had a punk/tribal twist to it, with lavish embellishments of hardware, paillettes, rhinestones and intricate embroidery.

The color scheme played out in the beginning as grey, mauve, and slate. It then jumped to red in the form of plaid and Turkish geometric patterns, followed by a rosette ornament print with shades of teal, burgundy, navy and yellow. The show ended with black ensembles of different fabrics and structures that were often adorned with black trim, beading and paillettes. The 21st and 22nd looks of the collection were pieces to drool over. They feature crochet work, the 21st being a top with a fur-trimmed circle skirt, and the 22nd being an a-line dress in which the crochet stitches thickened as it worked it’s way into a hem.

The collection consisted of dresses, outerwear and pant/blouse or skirt/blouse separates. You’d often catch the sleeve of a mesh top peeking from under the vests and short-sleeve coats, or fishnets as a juxtaposition to the sweetness of a dress. All looks however were matched with a head wrap or band draped with chains, braids and baubles around the face. In a word, the collection was fierce (and I actually hate using that word!)
