Rock and Republic’s one-hour delay was worth the wait, with a powerful show production including an elevated runway and live orchestra. Titled “Noir,” the entire collection was in black, with the exception of a few grey suits and purple dresses. The dresses were long, sexy and tight-fitting to the body. The suits were tailored and shown mostly with turtlenecks. It was a pleasant surprise to see a non-denim collection, as most of the focus was suiting that was transformable from day to night. There were a lot of leather coats with fur trim and belted trench coats. Both men’s and women’s looks were cohesive with a confident statement, with accessories – boots, pumps and shoes, bags and belts amplifying the overall effect.
