The starting point for the Meadham Kirchhoff Fall/Winter 2014 show was the idea of a little girl who discovers an attic full of raggedy vintage clothes.
On a runway chock-full of supersized hearts and gold streamers, the show began with a Chanel-esque timeless tweed blazer, sheer asymmetrical blouse, embroidered miniskirt, opaque patterned leggings and knee-high cherry red metallic boots. Equal parts childish and vintage, the first look set the precedent for the I-just-stumbled-out-of-my-grandmas-attic mix-and-match vibe the design duo set out to inspire. This was an opulent collection, with velvet and lace woven into 70s-inspired silhouettes, which included a bevy of bell-shaped sleeves, bell-bottom pants, and chambray blouses featuring either floppy bows or Peter Pan collars. Color blocking was a prevalent technique as well, with vibrant multi-hued dresses cropping up in a palette of coral rose, indigo, cornflower blue, and cardinal red. While the rainbow knee-high boots in look 30 pushed the my-little-pony aesthetic to the limit, the house pulled back the impish narrative with a commanding skirt-and-top set in look 40, a superb oversized mint blazer and calf-length skirt that showed the Meadham Kirchhoff Fall 2014 collection is no child’s play.
