Leila Shams Fall 2014 Pushing The Envelope

It seems that old man winter locked me out of this show due to the cold weather and snow but thanks to the wonders of technology and PR the collection came to me! Leila Shams is a new designer on my radar screen and from what can be seen from this and previous collection is she's not afraid to try new design ventures. Granted some hit and some miss (we can win the race all the time), for fall 2014 Ms Shams has ventured into knits which I do enjoy but hoped they would be more uniform in nature. As for the strongest piece it has to be her red leather moto-style jacket! Every woman should have one and with her color shift this makes this piece editorial friendly as well the black leather pants. As well the collection is dotted with dressed and other separates; but the main feeling here is that you have to have a confidence and spirit to slip into these clothes and it's something I really like.
