NYFW ’15: Thaddeus O’ Neil Collection Oozes with Surf Vibe

0

Yet another homage to the summer days is the Spring/Summer 2015 collection surfer, model, poet, and quite new designer Thaddeus O’Neil. The place exuded with a laid back manner that was very welcoming and relaxing. Ranging from the vintage cars parked out front to the guest list that included the big names in the industry.

Everything was well played and the cozy ambiance did nothing to miss the summer days any less. I adored how Thaddeus present his collection and the set was perfectly laid out for his Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Held at 91 Horatio Street in New York’s Meatpacking District last September 4th, the presentation gave us a summer nostalgia so strong we could smell the waves and figuratively feel the shore nearby. I love how they put attention to the details and I couldn’t get any more satisfied with its presentation. Thaddeus O’Neil is a rebel when it comes to his designs and his Spring/Summer 2015 collection isn’t an exception. Entitled “Children of the Sun” spring Summer 2015 the collection paid tribute to the iconic surfer in Thaddeus’ point of view. His love for prose and philosophy were beautifully translated to his designs, the result was very vividly stunning.

Styled by David Vandewal, his collection has a romantically whimsical vibe that is hard to miss. His collection was presented to the tune of Rimbaud mash-up poem over an oceanic soundscape. The presentation was followed by a series of “happenings” showcasing David Vandewal’s 20 looks.

The collection featured bold prints which are inspired by the play of the reflection of the light on water. The knitted ensembles were made of linen, silk, cotton and cashmere whereas the separates are from indigo herringbone.

If you are doubtful to Thaddeus penchant to surfing and prose, his collection was actually inspired from the Lido to Death in Venice to a beach party in La Jolla, or Kamakura. He quotes in his press release that his collection is “a real surf-a-rama vibe meets Beethoven opera meets Léger’s Ballet Mécanique with just that touch of erotic melancholy around the edges.” The bohemian vibe is far too strong, inviting us to take a plunge of this uber-chic and comfy wear. Ranging from a loose pointelle knit tank, V neck collared lilac sweater with green trim to a pair of silk pink or gray trousers, you would really wish to see your man sporting any ensemble from the collection.

Perhaps the most exciting part of the Thaddeus’ collection is the fact that his luxurious knitted ensembles and silky pair of trousers are actually unisex. I was already eyeing to the lilac-colored knitwear.

His collection is just so relaxed it reminds me of a life near the beach with a good book in hand. However, while laid back, the collection also entices us to give surfing a try with his coolest ensembles. I was more than happy to have been invited to this cool presentation, perhaps, I could be one of the Children of the Sun if I try one or two of his ensembles. What can you say?

    I wish to express some thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this setting. Because of surfing around throughout the world-wide-web and meeting proposals which are not helpful, I believed my life was done. Existing devoid of the solutions to the issues you have resolved all through the short article is a crucial case, and the kind which might have badly affected my entire career if I had not encountered your blog post. Your own personal ability and kindness in touching the whole thing was very useful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t encountered such a solution like this. I can now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this high quality and effective help. I will not hesitate to suggest your web sites to anybody who should get direction about this matter.

    I not to mention my buddies were checking out the best helpful hints on the website and so all of a sudden came up with an awful suspicion I had not expressed respect to the web site owner for those techniques. All of the ladies happened to be for this reason warmed to read through all of them and have in reality been tapping into these things. Appreciation for truly being simply considerate and then for finding this sort of superior areas millions of individuals are really desirous to be informed on. My very own sincere apologies for not expressing gratitude to earlier.

    I want to show my appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of such a situation. As a result of looking out through the world-wide-web and coming across techniques which are not productive, I figured my life was over.
