Laquan Smith turned up the heat for his Fall 2017 presentation. Held at the swanky Samsung 837 space in the Meatpacking District, the venue was filled with celebrities, stylists, socialites, publicists, press and fashion hopefuls eager to take a glimpse of the upcoming collection.
Spied on the scene were Ty Hunter, Remy Ma and Cardi B among others. Cardi showed her curves in a sheer baby blue piece by Laquan Smith and sandals by Gianvito Rossi.
Smith’s Fall 2017 collection provides a range that reaches all
extremes. On one end of the spectrum, the designer manages to waken
your inner dominatrix with latex bodycon dresses and mini skirts with
lace-up puffer thigh-high boots.
On the other end, neutral jumpsuits and dresses are partnered with
exciting pieces that can stand strongly by themselves. The fluffy, long
sleeve, off-the-shoulder top is a statement piece in itself but when
paired with the textured trousers, it takes the ensemble to another
Smith mixes both themes to fuse the idea of dainty and sexy. This is
expressed in the latex midi skirt, the fluffy cropped jacket, the latex
bodysuit, and the full-length skirt and crop top.
And for those who fall in between, he presents textured pieces in
various silhouettes that can be inserted into a variety of life events.
The black, full-length dress, which featured long sleeves and a high
neck, could be worn on any red carpet. The shorter version was designed
for the woman who aims to redefine the ‘little black dress.’
The choice of styling for this collection was genius. Reminiscent of
1990’s grunge, the models donned slicked back buns and long bangs swept
to the side, with hair sponsored by Outre.
Laquan Smith NEVER disappoints.
