Rock Star Pro-genies: strong, sexy and demure inspire the Jay Godfrey fall 2014 collection held at the Hub at the Hudson Hotel. The 70s rock ‘n’ roll inspired collection spirit into edgy prints and rich textures, creating body conscious silhouettes. Modernized rock staples of stand out shifts, flirty miniskirts, bold and unexpected bomber jackets, and sleek jumpsuits move with ease of stretch jacquard, ultra suede and Bouclé.
Black, in all its magnificence, anchors the palette and is highlighted by a velvety burgundy wine, subtle olive and deep indigo. Vibrant fringe, stud and zipper detailing along with shots of metallic sequin are foundational to the collection, drawing out a classic rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic that is reminiscent yet undeniably modern.
During the presentation, I met the designer and we laughed and joked about the rock ‘n’ roll theme as guests enjoy an impromptu guitar performance from a rocker, naturally. To my delight, he was very happy with the outcome.
