Chadwick Bell S/S15
You may not yet be familiar with designer Chadwick Bell, and although he has been showcasing his fashion at NYFW since 2008, he does seem to be a bit of a newcomer. Aimed at a mature, sophisticated audience, he spent the last six years refining his collection from fur and feathers to minimalist silhouettes, and a clear sportswear appeal. This makes the few journalists that have discovered his work, place him next to The Row or Organic by James.
I love the structured, graphic layering of his remarkable Spring Summer 2015 collection. It is easy to identify with the image of a strong, but sensitive woman in effortless, but very distinct attire.
There's something really worldly about this woman. She isn't just sitting all the time. She travels, she has collectibles… I like the idea of keepsakes. — style.com review
The looks are deconstructed yet never random. Like Bell says: European tailoring mixed with a sense of American ease.
