Today at 10 am, Wes Gordon unveiled his spring collection via video. He collaborated with Shine by Three blogger Margaret Zhang, who shot and directed the whimsical film that takes twin models Amalie and Cecilie Moosgaard around New York wearing his spring looks.
Gordon, who has been presenting his collection by video for several seasons, said that by not mounting a show, he can focus on creating beautiful pieces he loves without the requisite quantity required for the runway. He sweetly referred to his collection as a jewel box — and fittingly, the clothes were utterly romantic, but in a modern way.
There was a soft reference to the Nineties with bias-cut slipdresses with lace insets, done in pink and nude tones. A dramatic, extralong pink plaid anorak was playful and sweet (with a shorter version available for retail). Unlined jackets and coats with covered buttons and V-shaped necklines were elegant and chic, as were wide-leg trousers with a sewn-front seam. Gordon worked a graphic plaid viscose into pieces ranging from a coat to a dress. And for evening, he delighted with a few stunning options, including a black gauze gown with black-and-white lace insets.
