Fashion Week: Alexandre Herchcovitch Fall 2006

February 15, 2006 by kendah

image Show: Alexandre Herchcovitch

Where: Bryant Park Fashion Tent, The Tent

Goodies: Strange hair products by Sebastian (as their hair was done by Adam Bryant for Sebastian with Robert Ditacchio).

Celebs spotted: None to write home about apart an impossibly obnoxious girl (wearing Herchovitch’s rubber birdie-and-flower tunic) who wouldn’t stop prancing around for the cameras.

Thoughts: For a Brazilian designer who got his start in the fashion world by creating lines for trannies and prostitutes, Herchcovitch’s signature flair for Technicolor and theatrics was strangely not seen in this Fall ’06 line. In its place came many, blacks, neturals and ashey greens, with splashes of coral and florals. What could generally be labeled as goth-biker cum tea party, the line was a strange juxtaposition of darkness—bondagey buckles, leather straps, snaps, divinely dramatic jackets and pants—to what literally looks like those bad flowery frocks Julia Roberts wore in the early 90s. One coral dress did steal the show; however, along with a host of fierce pants and a few jackets Edgar Allan Poe may have cried for. And, although I’m not sure where one would wear it, a model did strut out in a chainmail helmet made of flowers that was amazing.

The catwalk, as one would expect, was dramatically lined with his signature skull and “A.H.” logo flags, while tribal drums beat through the soundsystem. It was too bad, however, that the models were about as vivacious as cardboard boxes. In all the show, like the line, had a hard time communicating with itself. But that’s not to undermine a few scintillating pieces that shone brightly against the wonky whole.
