Opening Ceremony‘s creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon turned their attention to athletic influence and elements of protection for their Fall/Winter 2014 collection. Centered around Earth tones and soft grays with pops of hunter green, cobalt and salmon appearing throughout, the collection’s key print is a fingerprint swirl that’s featured only on a couple of the most enthusiastic looks. One of the standout pieces is a three-in-one, single-garment coat known as the “chest plate” which was made from the combination of a vest, a color-blocked jacket and a long quilted parka. Additionally, there were harness sweaters and box-shaped tops with zippers that showed off the collection’s elongated silhouette.
Opening Ceremony delved into athletic performance apparel in presenting the brand’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week. It materialized in the form of a three-in-one, single-garment coat that designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim called a “chest plate,” made up of a vest worn over a color-blocked jacket over a long quilted parka. Rendered in distinct color palette groupings, the men’s were decidedly graphic in nature, helped along by long outerwear silhouette paired with slim trousers and bulky boots. A decorative fingerprint swirl adorning the exterior of sculptural pullover sweaters were inspired by the Belgian city of Antwerp, which means “hand thrown” in Dutch. It could also convey that the designers were in full command of Opening Ceremony’s creative direction and identity.
