Alexandre Herchcovitch F/W 2010
Alexandre Herchcovitch has been showing in the tents for well over seven years season after season but a few things we have noticed regarding this designer is that his name is not on the lips of fashion editors nor do we see any of his clothing in stores such as Barneys, Saks as well no magazine editorial? So if this is the case why would this designer keep showing season after season? We chalk it up to home town pride and cultural affairs funds via his home country of Brazil. Show in New York and be front page news back home the next day. As for his clothing we have always found his collections very avante guarde and not very wearable, as for this season it seems he is sticking with his own vision whatever that might be. There are a few coats he sent down which seem to have touches of the classic Chanel suiting but done in his own way. Other items have that jewel embellishment which is about two to three seasons old and indicates a "follow the leader" mentality. As for this trend most editors have moved on from this, but we still see it from bags to swimsuits from other designers mainly Prada.
