What We Thought:
We simply cannot wait to see more of David Tlale in the states. The showing of his Fall 2014 collection, titled “Elementary Metropolis” and choreographed by Jan Malan, was a testament to the intricate detail and understanding of fabrics woven into Tlale’s design philosophy. The run of show, which strayed away from the traditional runway and gave each look more stage time, really displayed that Tlale is a designer to watch (check out the full video of the show for yourself).
For fall, we saw a palette of classic color choices ranging from navy blue, nudes, to black – with lots of textural contrast especially in the darker colored ensembles. Both the pieces and the models donning them reinforced Tlale’s emphasis on diversity, with a remarkable range of silhouettes, both figure-hugging and flowing that moved gracefully down the runway with each step. We can easily say that every look that debuted on the catwalk seemed both accessible and stylish for any woman of confidence.
