Show Review: LaQuan Smith Spring 2013
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

LaQuan Smith held his Spring 2013 show at the Hudson Hotel’s outdoor garden on Monday, just steps away from Lincoln Center. The young designer presented his offerings for next season to an audience including June Ambrose, Constance C.R. White (both of whom were sitting at my table), Ty Hunter, and more. Inspired by his recent travels to the British Virgin Islands and Lagos, Nigeria, the 24-year-old designer imagined a wardrobe for the globetrotting woman of leisure.

The collection was heavy on cropped silhouettes, high waistlines, and Smith’s beloved hotpants. The designer translated the easygoing mood of the vacationing woman with several pieces boasting a delicate lace laid over silver glitter, denim, and neon fabrics.

For the sporty chick, Smith delivered a few beach-ready sheer, hooded windbreaker-type pieces, emboldended by black piping.

The foray was practically devoid of evening looks, although this sleek, short-sleeved coral sleeve gown with high thigh slit comes close.

All in all, the collection certainly gave the resort vibe Smith was going for. I’d say these spring offerings skew to the sporty, somewhat tomboyish side. I could see Azealia Banks in those glittery denim hotpants, or Tomboy extraordinaire Teyana Taylor hitting an event in that coral gown.

What do you think?

    Question. How does he gets funds for a presentation like this?

    ‘imagined a wardrobe for the globetrotting woman of leisure’. umm.. really? No globe trotting woman of leisure would be rocking any of these looks, im quite sure.

  2. I liked his last collection that debuted at nyfw. This one not so much -__-

  3. Too much going on here. Not feeling it.

    I liked the story book collection (correct?). I’m seeing more cast of Austin Powers than ” globe trotting woman of leisure.” (No shade…just my opinion)
    And yes there is too much going on here……

    I actually like a lot of the pieces but I must say the line could of been more cohesive I didn’t see that flow that you imagine a globe trotting woman would have.

    Looks so ratchet and all over the place, not feeling it at all.

    I can’t behind, in front of or into any of his work. -_-
