Mathieu Mirano was the first show I attended this season and what a fabulous way to start it off! The inspiration for the collection was mixing sexuality and tradition, combining the feminine aspect with something more hardcore and the result was a collection of looks that were wearable and hopelessly chic at the same time. The Mathieu Mirano collection included leather bodices, angular jackets, cropped motorcycle jackets, a dash of fur and just enough sequins and sparkles to dazzle the crowd. I was amazed to learn that the designer was only 22 years old because his collection showcased a sophistication and finesse demonstrating that he is a talent wise beyond his years.
Pictured above is one of my favorite looks from the collection, a glittering silver sequined pencil skirt topped with a matching motorcycle style cropped jacket. If I owned this there is a decent chance that my husband would start going blind because I would never take it off.
One of the things that I particularly loved about the Mathieu Mirano Fall collection was how much black it showcased. Despite my penchant for all things sequined and sparkly, I also am a huge fan of black (what New Yorker isn’t?) and I loved how Mathieu Mirano reinvented the basic black look to keep it stylish and chic so it was anything but boring and basic. And adding a fabulous black and grey fur stole doesn’t hurt either! (picture below, center).
