The grunge underground culture served as foundation for the rebellious fall / winter 2013 collection unveiled by Hache during New York fashion week (NYFW). Surpassing the limits of the conservative aesthetic, Hache’s line up appeared as infused with new original elements this season, heavily nodding towards the 90’s skateboarding scene. Manuela Arcari made use of gold metallic leather, Murmasky fur and utility fabrics like neoprene to further emphasize the contemporary feel of the collection.
Relevant due to the voluminous silhouettes, intriguing due to the boxy and rather industrial garments that were clearly borrowing inspiration from menswear, and surprisingly feminine as signaled by the pastel pink touches coming mostly from the oversized clutches, Hache’s collection couldn’t have possibly offered more variety. The smart layering translating to coats worn over jackets and skirts worn over pants, alongside a dark color palette and the masculine inspired styling, seemed to have made the most out of the freedom element that embraced Manuela Arcari’s vision.
