                                                                                                                                                          Christian Siriano Spring 2014 collection adds a sporty touch through the use of crop-tops on separates from the designer known more for big evening-wear.

                                                                                                                                                          The following show notes provides more information about the collection:

                                                                                                                                                          For spring 2014, Christian Siriano drew upon his recent trip to Isla Mujeres, the “Island of Women,” off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula for inspiration. It is a modern yet authentic representation of the Mexican culture that is still appealing to women around the globe. The collection is a celebration of the female form as seen through a romantic lens to capture a refreshingly young vibe.

                                                                                                                                                          The color palette and silhouettes of the collection evolved from the architecture and bright tropical colors of the residential buildings, the crafts and handmade textiles, and the Caribbean coast. The imagery behind a fusion of grass and palm-lined huts, the terribly picturesque color blocked streets and intricate stonework in the town created a base foundation for the clothing’s shapes.

                                                                                                                                                          Prints were sparked by the traditional abundance of the dahlia, creating a reoccurring floral pattern. There are day separates in vibrant prints paired with raffia textiles, and soft elegant organzas for evening in sand tones. This collection, like the stimuli of the island, is dramatic and powerful in the lightest way possible.
