Falguni Shane and Peacock Fall 2013

This husband and wife design duo was one of my favorite discoveries this past NY Fashion week.  They got their start making custom pieces for India's elite.  Now their dramatic, luxurious pieces have made their way into international boutiques and celebrities like Jennifer Lopez. 

The prints, the elaborate embroidery, the cyber-futuristic corseting had a dark and edgy feel.  Fierce and glamorous, I would love to strut down Gotham streets or a red carpet in any of these Falguni and Shane Peacock looks.

Sergio Davila's Steampunk Muse

Most people love Steampunk as an aesthetic, but see it as a costume.  How do you bring a sense of romance and vintage appreciation into every day sportswear?  Peruvian designer Sergio Davila seems to have solved this question at his recent Fall 2013 fashion show.

Using a love of natural fiber fabrics and classic tailoring techniques, he created a collection for men and women with a vintage color palette of brown, grey, tan and black.  While the inspiration was retro, he updated the styling for more modern tastes.  Leather and brass hardware are nice details to trim shaped collars. Slicked hair for the gents and pin-up girl waves brought back the look of groomed days past...
