"Dark Innocence" the fall 2014 collection by Angel Sanchez was inspired by women who appear demure to outside world, but pray for divine power to control their forbidden dark desires.
The result was a collection of modern silhouettes with sharp lines and leather details that verged on futuristic at times. The powerful yet sophisticated collection was anything but demure.
The collection opened with a series of edgy designs in a dark color palette of black with touches of gunmetal. Leather paneling, pleating, and details added texture and interest to the all black ensembles. A micro pleated leather shift dress shined like liquid metal on the catwalk. The darkness of the collection gave way to a lighter palette of gold organza, lurex tweed, emerald and sapphire jewel tones, and white wool crepe.
Details like high cut geometric necklines, open backs, and color-blocked seams, gave the collection by Angel Sanchez its signature futuristic style. A-line tops with were paired with tailored trousers for day to evening looks, and capes attached to dresses and gowns added drama to the collection.
