Cedric Charlier RTW Fall 2014

Cédric Charlier showed an impressive fall collection that riffed mostly on animal patterns — “the illusion of reptiles,” as he put it backstage pre-show.

Charlier worked the idea with confidence and panache via innovative textures inspired by manipulated photographs of snake and crocodile skins. A mannish, oversize coat, for one, was rendered in a jacquard that looked like python. Worn over a chic white turtleneck dress, the ensemble had a certain urban sophistication.

The designer also demonstrated ease with optical effects, most notable in the three-dimensional knit dresses, sweaters and pencil skirts. Their scalelike surfaces were finely sequined to shimmering effect for a cool evening vibe.
