Lela Rose Spring 2015 was absolute perfection
The Lela Rose Spring 2015 collection was nothing short of stunning. With fans like Brittany Snow and the Duchess of Cambridge, it's clear that Lela knows how to make the perfect dress. And when we sat down for the Spring 2015 collection, we were thrilled with what we saw.
After the show, we caught up with Lela backstage to chat about the collection.
AOL Style: Can you tell us about the inspiration for this collection?
Lela Rose: It really started with traditional, vintage kimonos. I've collected them for a long time. It's a garment that lasted for centuries, but the shape is still relevant, very feminine and interesting. But I didn't want to take just straight-up kimono references, so either we really modernized it with folded backs that look great today but still have that inspiration, but if we did something like that then we did it with sheer mesh.
The other aspect I love about them is the mix of the floral and graphics, so we really did a lot of that. That opening look is dots mixed with florals, and a lot of the florals were taken from that watering print, and then exaggerated or blown-up in different ways. So you'll see there were little bits of the kimono references in a very modern way.
AOL: It was a really incredible show. So beautiful!
LR: Thank you! I'm happy. No one fell!
AOL: What are you most excited about to wear for fall?
LR: You know, I love fall, and I love tweeds, but I really love doing mustards. I'm always in some version of yellow! Usually this one is in some version of yellow. [referring to her young daughter, who is standing next to Lela, holding her hand.]
AOL: Well yellow always looks great on blondes!
LR: Yes! I told her from an early age that yellow was her favorite color. She's like, "No it's purple!" and I would say "No, it's citrine!"
