The Escada Pre-Fall 2014 collection is a study in light. Inspired from the renowned artist James Turrell, the Escada collection draws its colors and moods from his light installations.

The famed artist’s plays on light and hues were a fitting reference given the brand’s history of experimenting with bold color combinations, and the latest lineup featured saturated “skyspace” shades like blue sapphire, pink tourmaline, and purple tanzanite. Those jewel tones were incorporated into such pieces as draped charmeuse tops and matching cigarette pants, as well as a color-blocked fur coat with detachable leather sleeves.

Other highlights included tailored separates decorated with mirrored accents that resembled shards of glass; a fun, feathered black dress and a slim column gown with a panel of shimmering copper sequins down the front.
