There’s something about the tough and gritty sports that’s appealing to designers this season. Definitely headed for 2010 trend status, feminine interpretations of sportswear were high on Alexander Wang’s agenda, as well as appearing in the Spring/Summer 2010 collection of Alexandre Herchcovitch. Herchcovitch’s football theme took accentuated shoulders to the extreme; but while the more dramatic costumery makes the collection much less street-ready than Wang’s, the elements of sports socks, subtle sheer pieces, and colourful tunics are key winners from Herchcovitch’s New York Fashion Week show.
Herchcovitch’s collection also played upon cage skirting, whilst some of the exaggerated silhouettes had their basis in 16th century Spanish Court dress.
