Marcel Ostertag showed his fall/winter 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week on February 11, 2016 at the Skylight Clarkson. The fall 2016 collection, took it’s inspiration from a common weather trait of the autumn season; rain.
The “rain” theme was apparent throughout the show. Marcel Ostertag used the rain theme on his sweaters which featured large raindrops. There were also rain slicker plastic inserts blocked into many of the skirts on the runway. This gave “rain” an entire new imagine; one that is cool, rather than wet. Love that!
Marcel Ostertag used texture and fabric blocking throughout his collection, using fabrics on skirts and dresses which unexpected, and fresh. The mix of texture on many of the skirts added a sophisticated yet playful vibe which was a fresh take on standards skirts; and rain gear.
The color palate, which was mainly light blue, grey, navy, and burgundy, evoked a fall feeling of grey skies, light blue rain water, evening sky navy, and burgundy leaves. The colors were cohesive with the theme, and helped complete the collection. Even the sequins were arranged like rain drops, which danced as the models moved down the runway.
I am in love with the trench coats, everything blue, and the fabulous long burgundy gown pictured above. Which pieces are your favorite from the collection?
