http://openingceremony.us/” target=”_blank”>Opening Ceremony delved into athletic performance apparel in presenting the brand’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week. It materialized in the form of a three-in-one, single-garment coat that designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim called a “chest plate,” made up of a vest worn over a color-blocked jacket over a long quilted parka. Rendered in distinct color palette groupings, the men’s were decidedly graphic in nature, helped along by long outerwear silhouette paired with slim trousers and bulky boots. A decorative fingerprint swirl adorning the exterior of sculptural pullover sweaters were inspired by the Belgian city of Antwerp, which means “hand thrown” in Dutch. It could also convey that the designers were in full command of Opening Ceremony’s creative direction and identity.
