Tomas Maier Pre-Fall 2015
December 3, 2014 - fall Denim
“Why shop?” If Tomas Maier has a pattern mantra for his eponymous collection, it competence only be that elementary question. The lineup he presented for Pre-Fall in his salon currently was prolonged on basics. Why emporium for those? Because Maier imbues his basis with special details. An hourglass jersey change boasted a quarrel of tiny, brushed-brass studs next a neckline; a aspect of a denim shirtdress was oiled for a leatherlike sheen; and corpulent ribbed sweaters in drapey shapes came in dry string or four-ply cashmere. Three seasons in, a collection is both bolder, with zippy pops of color, and looser—not in terms of fit, though of sensibility. Those coronet studs grew and double on splendid velvet jackets, and silk dresses nodded behind during prior decades, like a collection’s snub-toed oxfords—not utterly retro though positively nostalgic. Alongside a some-more dainty fare, there was a string poplin shirt with such a spot-on fit that business during Maier’s new Madison Avenue emporium have taken to shopping it in multiples. A baby blue shearling cloak was a genuine knockout.
