Alexandre Herchcovitch presented his Spring 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week on Saturday, September 7th. The minimalist collection focused on feminine silhouettes in black and white, the season’s hottest trend. In an exclusive pre-show backstage interview at Milk Studios, Herchcovitch told SJ Chronicle, “The clothing in this collection consists of angled bands of fabric cut and pieced to flatter different parts of the body.” When asked what inspired him for this season, Herchcovitch explained that he “wanted to use a combination of different fabric strips and shapes and piece them together to accentuate different parts of a woman's body”—a technique inspired by his own Spring/Summer 1998 collection. The first models down the runway wore sophisticated, masculine black-and-white satin pinstripes spliced with, for example, ruffles above the knee or chiffon draping around the waistline.
