Date: February 9th Venue: Room&Board (NYC – Chelsea)
Adrian Alicea released THE RAVEN collection, a fascinating assemblage of gender fluid garments in a passionate color palette of nudes, brights and moody hues. Juxtaposition makeup incorporated large smokey eyes with natural faces.
Sheer, semi sheer and slinky tops were generously fashioned with tartan, lace and floral motif, metallic embellishments and lots of ruffles, in fitted and loose styles, with open fronts and belled sleeves. Skirts flowed down the runway with short fronts, some pleat and tiered underlay, mesh and floral detail, long trains, asymmetrical and wrap looks in tulle, velvet and satin with liberal application of Scottish themed patterns, and a showstopping corset belt. Logo prints featured in some key pieces throughout. Pants and trousers were leathered, plaid, cropped and culotte.
Romantically crafted dresses in sweetheart shapes, baby doll and Victorian Goth with exaggerated puffs, frills, short fronts with long tails, loads of lace and tulle, wrapped, belted and strapless with silhouette underlay. Jeweled accessories elevated each look, statement earrings were crossed and doubled hooped, necklines were stacked with infinity strand and pendant pearls, silver figaro and curb link chains, chokers and collars were studded, leathered and spiked, complete with silk, satin and velvet oblong scarves. Wrist cuffs displayed precious metal, roped, spiked and leather bound, upper arm bracelets etched, and a glorious antique gold body chain. Show gloves featured in opera length and short styles in full-finger and fingerless design, dressed in sheer, fishnet and leathered fabrics with furred, clawed and studded accents.
Regal cardigans, jackets and overcoats constructed asymmetrically with hooded, graphic, barbed and zip-up detail in silky, snaked and multi-print textures, while warmer outerwear were furred, puffed and quilted. Legwear came in a complimentary array, from body stockings to knee socks and leg warmers, paired with everyday lace-up boots, combat boots, doc martins and equestrian boots, to more formal leather pumps, ankle and over-the-knee heeled boots, round toe ankle strap platform heels and platform stiletto boots in leather, suede and patent leather.
