Show Review: Wes Gordon Fall 2013
By Faith


Atlanta-born designer Wes Gordon pulls from a number of inspirations for his glitzy Fall 2013 collection: chic Rolling Stones groupies, The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album and all of its showstopping fashion, and King’s Road in London. All make sense with his background as Gordon honed his sartorial skills at one of the world’s most prestigious fashion universities, Central Saint Martins. Though he only has a couple of years of collections under his belt, it is clear that Gordon is highly-skilled — not surprising considering he perfected his craft with the likes of Oscar de la Renta and Tom Ford. His latest offerings hold nothing back with loads of texture, glamour, and rich shades, making standing out mandatory for the season.


The Sgt. Pepper influence can be felt immediately with striped suiting, an eye-catching yellow band jacket, and a high-neck open style with an antique brooch closure and bell sleeves — reminiscent of Alexander McQueen.

Gordon eschews the old notion of Fall neutrals with brights from marigold to hot pink.



Prints play on floor-length skirts and pin dot satin trousers.

The collection is one of the most lavish yet, with a roomy brocade smoking jacket elegantly hanging off a model’s shoulders, an off-the-shoulder gold bustle top paired with leather flare trousers, a rocker chic bronze suit, sparkling embellished trousers that are impossible to miss, and more.

Fur anyone? It makes a statement on the hem of a shawl-collar single breasted coat and leather pencil skirt, as well as around the necks and wrists of a slew of pieces: adding autumnal warmth, but most importantly glamour.

Red carpet-ready wear is on high and I am sure that Gordon fans including Kerry Washington and Rita Ora will find enough looks to strut in. How can any stylish woman resist a long-sleeve black and gold sheer lace top with a floor-length train for an added dose of glamour? I hope one of these ladies is bold enough to sport it in the coming months.
