If there is one thing Emma Cook is loyal to it’s prints and the designer went full speed ahead with patterns for her Fall 2014 collection. She was heavily influenced by the idea of a traveling circus, thus melding parts from different cultures including the Middle East and the great old U.S. of A.
Mixed texture and camel print bomber jackets rounded out the small outerwear portion, while toppers of the same persuasion grounded the collection in real-time wear. The knits will surely be big retail hits. I particularly fancied when the sweaters were paired with pencil skirts, as that is one of my go-to looks for transitional dressing.
Leather wide-leg trousers and skirts infused some edge into the lineup.
I thoroughly expect the brand’s fans including Nicole Scherzinger, Beyoncé Knowles, Hilary Duff, and Katy Perry to gravitate toward a number of Fall designs. A scarab print mini dress was actually the exact opposite of creepy crawly, while a frock of the same length covered in a pattern that one might find in a souk in Marrakech would look killer on the red carpet with a sleek chignon and red lips.
