Yesterday I had the great pleasure of viewing Sophie Zinga’s Spring 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week. Upon entering the suite at NYC’s London Hotel, I was immediately captivated by the presentation of said collection. I felt as if I had walked in on a two page spread for Vogue the way the striking models were spread across a slightly elevated stage with the New York skyline for a background. It was both the beauty of the photo opportunities as well as the perfection of the garments that inspired me to devote an entire post to Sophie Zinga’s first showing in New York.
When I say perfection, I am referring to the ultimate triangle of wearability, quality and freshness. I would describe the collection as structured femininity and my instinctive visual reaction saw a collision of vintage glamour meeting the exotic future, an odd take considering the collection’s inspiration stems from such simplicity as roses, leaves and the textiles of her native country, Africa.
I look forward to dressing clients in her pieces for events and fabulous occasions. I especially love the white two piece ensemble of white lace brocade. I am picturing a cocktail party, fantastic birthday dinner or white party.
