Show Review: LaQuan Smith Fall 2014
By Claire

The sounds of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s song, “I Can’t Stop” blared over the loudspeakers at LaQuan Smith’s Fall 2014 presentation. The young designer has had quite a sparkling career–his garments have been spied on the likes of Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, and only a few seasons ago, his show was attended by the likes of Andre Leon Talley, Diane von Furstenberg, and Lorenzo Martone, with starlets like Serena Williams, Cassie, and Deborah Cox modeling his wares.

Fashion has a way of chewing up and spitting out their young. As Heidi Klum famously said on Project Runway, “One Day You’re In, and the next day you’re out.” But even with the intrinsic fickleness of the industry, LaQuan Smith is powering through, refusing to stop, regardless of what may come his way.

His latest collection shows the growth and maturity of a designer who has been at battle, but has emerged triumphant. Fittingly, he said, “The collection [has] a utilitarian, militant aesthetic. It’s very hardcore. [It's] almost kind of like, the life of war, the life of a battle.” Indeed.

While his signature sinewy, close fit dresses pegged for the younger set are still available, he also incorporated more classics: think lacy dresses in black and navy, smart coats, and fabulously frilled skirts.

Not to say he skimped on sex appeal. Sheer elements played to his provocative predilections.

Still, there seem to be pieces for even the mature woman. Though a croc lined pencil skirt was modeled with a crop top, a woman of a certain age could pair the skirt with a button down for a more elegant look.

Another sign of evolution: his attention to menswear. Cropped pea coats and slouchy pants would be well pegged for a fashionisto with a bold outlook.

Smith delivered a strong collection. So strong, in fact, that the fashion world should pay attention. He’s not stopping, and it seems he’s only getting better with time.

    This is the first collection of his I’ve liked. I can definitely see the maturation of his style voice. Loving the pleated a-line skirt, the navy lace & red croc-print dresses, the croc-paneled pencil skirt AND the men’s jackets. I’lll definitely be investing in some of these pieces.

    Every single piece is well thought out and well tailored. I never liked his collections until this one. Too bad I can’t afford it.

    I like the pieces too. Though I am not feeling any of the menswear. I have however seen each piece before. Done well, just done already.
