Hugo Boss Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week
The Boss Women fall/winter 2015-2016 collection presented on the New York Fashion Week runway began with a strong start, showing off the label’s signature colors and really making the viewer feel like she is attending a Hugo Boss show. The navy coat with the orange lining was draped over the navy and orange midi length dress, complete with a slit down to the chest and another that has been trending since the spring shows going up the center of the hem. All this was completed with a short fringed haircut with blunt bangs, and the feet clad in knee high latex boots. The second piece showed off the fabulous slit of the dress under the coat of the first, while the black velvet gloves over the elbows looked positively stunning, making this a great dress to go out in for the night.
Moving on into the jacquard and then the black looks, we fell in love with the ultra-feminine designs on a long sleeved midi length dress with a high collar and half boots lined with orange, before moving on to the rest of the black numbers, including features of the plunging V neckline and strappy looks across the chest that made the dresses look even more choc than it would have. Those elbow length gloves, which appeared often enough, took our breaths away.
Jason Wu, named as the Art Director of the German fashion house of Hugo Boss in 2013, has been overseeing the entire women’s wear range. The Taiwanese Canadian fashion designer has taken his inspiration from the concept of strength this time around and produced a collection that is the envy of every artist in the industry. He has certainly taken things to the next level with this compilation, ensuring the audience and the average woman can relate with the way these models present themselves. Each piece of garment speaks sophistication, but it also screams smarts, intelligence and ability. It is a woman’s way of showing the world that she is a capable individual with her own ideas and a will to succeed. She doesn’t need to show off too much skin, she doesn’t require men’s praises. What she commands is respect and each piece here ensures that respect is not washed away in a matter of moments because the dress did not match the mind of the wearer.
We love seeing the orange reds appearing across the line-up, while the grays and blues add a touch of softness to the otherwise bolder looks. So many of the grey dresses are simply delicious; eye candy that is hard to imagine our closets without. While some of the outfits in matching colors appear to be a little too boxy, that is made up for with lovely tailoring and the others that follow which show off more of the woman’s silhouette. The deep V plunge of the neckline on the pantsuit reminds us of Jennifer Anniston’s bolder looks of late, while the sequined dresses do much to capture the attention while still remaining subtle against any background. Wu’s done an amazing job with the collection and the Hugo Boss line will probably find itself sold out of quite a few of these ready-to-wear items.
