Skingraft Fall 2014 is inspired by the idea of drastic climate change and an inevitable return to a dystopian survivalist future. The collection pulls from Siberian, Mongolian and artic tribal cultures who have adapted , thrived and built communities in harsh climates and severe conditions for centuries.
The edgy, luxurious streetwear looks for Fall 2014 incorporate new fabrications such as hand-quilted leather and mohair, shaved ponyhair and ribbed nylon-fused fleece and intricate embroideries detailed with leather and metal jewels.
Skingraft's Fall 2014 show was one of my favorites this season at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, with key looks including a gold leather & mohair woven moto jacket paired with a leather moto pencil skirt, a ponyhair varsity jacket over a leather tunic dress and a fur & knit leather jacket worn with a gold embroidered Mongolian skirt.
Shoes and accessories are also by Skingraft, with select jewelry by Mishka Piaf. Check out my backstage beauty coverage here, with makeup by Sarah Lucero for Stila, hair by Jon Reyman for Aveda and nails by Patricia Yankee Nail Lacquer.
