The TOCCA SS 2014 Runway Show was the perfect blend of women’s everyday ready to wear pieces mixed with items ready for performance art. In fact, TOCCA Creative Director and Designer Emma Fletcher was inspired by the world of dance and motion when creating this collection, which was presented at Pier 59 Studios in Chelsea NY.
The runway show was full of garments that came across effortless, yet leaving the ability to showcase the pure elegance, grace, and BEauty in motion.
TOCCA takes us BEhind the curtain as she transitions from studio rehearsal to performance, and everyday life. A finely pleaded dress in cotton and collaged blouses in silk tulle create a sense of airiness reminiscent of an effortless glide. Adding to the weightlessness, TOCCA’s trademark lace is reinterpreted with floral lace insets in a lightweight cotton. A crimson leotard peeks from BEneath a striking navy and white jacquard coat as our dancer leaves the stage. Metallic sequins shimmer through sheer silks and dash out ruffle edged tops as she mixes rehearsal wear with street clothes and evening ensembles with a chic, offhand flair. The color palette continues the balletic mood in lemon yellow, pale blue, and a dreamy cloud print in metallic inflected silk. Outerwear is represented by the short-sleeved odette coat, and a short BElted trench.
