To kick off New York Fashion Week, Marcia Patmos debuted the M.PATMOS Fall 2013 collection this week at Pier 59 in New York City.
Known for her understated yet elegant approach, the collection was inspired by an aristocratic nomad; a well-traveled woman who collects and carefully curates her wardrobe with pieces from around the world. Within the Fall 2013 collection were ladylike silhouettes mixed with a menswear inspired theme. The juxtaposition reflected the bourgeois, eccentric lady of the house who borrows pieces from her husband’s closet.
Textures within the collection were masculine and featured such details as fisherman ribs, waffle knits and bold plaids, combined with luxe fabrications such as merino shearling, Nappa leather and rich silks resulting in a collection grounded in dark hues like deep wine, peacock and charcoal with shots of metallic and neon. Bold patterns such as ikat and camouflage, were also featured within the collection.
Although the M.PATMOS collection is known for knits, outerwear pieces were introduced in updated classics such as trench coats and bombers.
