RAQUEL ALLEGRA SS16 PRESENTATION

Posted BY FRANCES MAY ON September 11th, 2015
Raquel Allegra is a staff and customer favorite here at Frances May. The pieces are unique, intentionally delicate and truly special. Her knits are a staple with the shredded signature the designer has perfected and the wovens are conceptually strong as well. She is a true artist and that is evident in the tone and execution of her seasonal collections and lookbooks.
Raquel Allegra held her SS16 presentation yesterday evening at Industria Studios in the Meatpacking district. As the doors opened at 5:10pm showgoers caught of glimpse of the calm designer putting the finishing styling touches on her army of models as well as delivering personal messages of thanks and enthusiasm. 21 models stood outward facing around a mandala designed by Briana Sophia Young made of various flowers, branches and leaves. Some of the bits and pieces even made it to the lady’s room decorating soap holders and paper towel dispensers. The vibe was very “California in New York”.
Show notes included statements like: “Mandala Vibes”, “Strength of Vulnerability” and “To the Radiance at Large”. Those feelings were echoed in the clothing that was full of boldness, color and print. Collection highlights were combinations of indigo and white, drawstrings, ikat, leather, shredded tees, tie dye, watercolor, striping, deconstructed silks, palazzo pants, maxi dresses, olives and smoky topaz. The shoes presented in the show were a collaboration between the designer and Coclico.
The event was well attended including sightings of Marisa Tomei and jewelry designer Eva Fehren. The signature beverage that was served, “The Hippie-Hippie HooRah”, made up of Chareau Aloe liquor, fresh lime juice and wildflower honey, was the best drink at Fashion Week to date.
