Each season Emily Saunders reigns in on what her unabashed, feminine cool woman wants. For spring 14, she goes deep into “the adventure and exoticism of a 1930s archaeological dig in Mesopotamia.” Her presentation at the High Line Hotel, the latest swanky venue for New York Fashion Week events was transformed to match her inspiration. Models were set in charecter through clustered vignettes, unearthing artifacts and detailing findings equipped with just the right tools.
Her hero set was designed to resemble a fashionable excavation. She showed long slinky dresses in earthy golden tangerine tones paired with custom jewelry from Megan Issacs which resembled finds one might uncover on a dig of stylish pursuits. The collection was filled with jacquard leopard prints in a range of softs colors seen on shorts, feminine structured dresses, and a twill safari jacket paired with matching shorts which was a definite standout. She did well with other prints that featured a large bone repeat on slouchy pajama pants and a one-shoulder dress along with the cityscape group which showed the collection’s light springtime demeanor.
