An ode to artist Mark Rothko: Pamella Roland Fall/Winter 2017 swept the scene of Pier 59 Studios with a collection inspired by abstract expressionism and Rothko’s use of color and texture. Perfect for a chillier time, the pieces combined a variety of materials including double-faced cashmere, leather, and mesh organza, showcased in wintry shades of garnet, moss, aubergine, and amethyst, to name a few.
In signature Pamella Roland fashion, there areplenty of options when it comes to tailored separates with a modern edge. Classic floor-length evening silhouettes also commanded the runway as the run of show transitioned from subtler hues into richer, deeper shades. To no surprise, Fall/Winter 2017 certainly wasn’t without the meticulous detail of embroidery, sequins, sparkling crystals and alluring feathers. All in all a charming and elegant collection – there wasn’t one piece we wouldn’t wear.
Notable attendees included Chloe Norgaard, Teyana Taylor, Vanessa Williams, and Pamella Roland regulars/ANTM pros Jay Manuel, Jay “Miss” Alexander, and Nigel Barker.
