Dubbed “Josephine Baker goes raving,” the fun aesthetic combined sportswear with the Charleston, in flapper silhouettes with chained tassels, in comfy jersey in banana yellow or sherbet pink, and drew on club-kid culture as well.
Josephine Baker on acid is the most apt way to describe Manish Arora’s Spring Summer 2014 collection. From the drop waisted, pleated skirts, to the Art Deco accents and copious beads, it’s clear the jazz age singer was a source of inspiration.
But the designer infused the spirit of his muse with his signature, psychedelic touch.
The collection was rich in ornamentation found in both printed patterns and sequins — done in poppy, psychedelic colors, or rich reds and ambers.
Prints ranged from rich and India-meets-Psychedelic, to modern and Art Deco, rendered in abstract circular, swirling prints.
