Todd Snyder Spring/Summer 2014
Appearing to have been influenced by both the Purple Noon character Tom Ripley and David Bowie’s 1978 Stage tour, the SS14 collection from designer Todd Snyder delivers a chic yet experimental aesthetic, with American-inspired styling running throughout.
Working in a warm palette of charcoal, navy and berry hues this thoughtful offering showcases a range of separates along with some sharp detailing and slick styling. Blending casual sports and nautical styles with more formal attire demonstrates an unexpected versatility, which emphasises the collection’s mix and match appeal.
Tartan, stripes and geometrics work as the collection’s detailing high-notes, with many adding welcome pops of colour as well as a youthful touch. Fitted cardigans, turn up trousers and a range of jacket styles are utilised to demonstrate simple yet effective layering techniques, with crisp patent shoes remaining the chosen style of footwear.
Trend seekers will be pleased to see an alternative use of checks within this collection as well as a fresh view on seasonal hues.
Key pieces within the collection include the contrast striped cardigan and the dusty purple check blazer. However, the red bomber style jacket is perhaps the most interesting. With a velvet like finish and a strong 1950s American vibe, this piece delivers an original use of both texture and colour.
Proving that spring/summer fashion is far from just pastels and florals, the new collection from Todd Snyder is able to add both modern and retro touches to your wardrobe.
