Cynthia Rowley showed her spring 2013 collection in an old, abandoned space on Lower Manhattan’s Beekman Street Thursday night. There were exposed walls and scaffolding, and multicolored confetti rained down from the sun roof several stories above, dotted the floor, and resembled the aftermath of some crazy beach party.
Rowley played with proportion, colors, and textures in her summer-y collection. A mother of pearl wetsuit fit like a second skin, while sequined and metallic party frocks were nearly knee-length and full of movement. Embellished tops and bottoms were voluminous, and the girls also wore trucker hats — but without the logos. The models sported clean makeup and the chicest of hat hair — parted in the middle and completely slicked down at the crown, and then boom: voluminous strands starting a few inches away from the root and all the way down to the tip. If only we could rock such cool hair all winter.
While some of the pieces wouldn’t flatter the average woman’s figure, they were still great to look at and the detailing was impeccable. Check out Rowley’s collection below:
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
