Former Argentinean national ice skating champion turned fashion designer, Alex Vinash, closed New York Fashion Week with a tropical Ready-To-Wear collection. Featured in glossies from ELLE to NYLON and VOGUE – Mexico, Alex opens up to Jesenia’s Goodie Bag about his soul-searching journey on his recent trips to St. Barts and Ibiza. Affectionately he divulged the story of how he fell in love with the fashionably conscious ladies of nightlife and their bikini & maxi dress outfit combinations, which he says are great transition pieces from beach to party. Heavily influenced by the Moroccan energy of the Mediterranean and his fascination with sparkle, fringe and train dresses, Vinash reminds us, “Clothes should be effortless.”
Womenswear featured a mix of smoky grey button shirts with decorative bows, tri-colored print short sleeve tops, and cropped knits with feathered sleeves. Fanciful bottoms included tiered feathered skirts and black-gold metallic pants. Like a botanical garden, dresses bore leaf prints, butterfly and feathered motif over sheer and tulle fabric in singular, monochrome and multi-colored styles.
Statement outerwear included cropped and long jackets with striking features, like metallic gold, ruby red, baroque embroidery, satin fabric, sleeve embellishment and feathered necklines. Beach ready attire made waves with palm tree and banana leaf prints on a striped tri-colored lavender-beige-gray, paired over a lime green kimono fashioned with multi-colored fringe tassels.
Menswear was equally impressive, black knitted sheer shirts bore amazonian birds in flight motif paired with matching pants, and tasteful nude pink shorts. Men’s jackets rivaled women’s with bee embroidered, floral, satin (also in ruby red), and a showstopping black-white perforated zip-up jacket with pink butterfly motif.
