The design aesthetic of Meadham Kirchhoff isn’t for everyone. It takes a special kind of girl with a certain quirk to understand and appreciate the duo’s eye. But for fall 2014 the “princes of kitsch” toned-down their eccentric designs with a collection that’s sure to appeal to the masses due to its lighter (often misunderstood) layers and gentler color scheme.We saw fun, feminine, tweed suitings; metallic printed jackets; slip dresses; and the expected lace tier numbers.
Though the silhouettes varied from form fitting to loose and often times boxy, the collection affected a decidedly feminine feel with pastel colors, sheer blouses, lace dresses and proper tweed jackets. However, it still possessed the essence of a Meadham Kirchhoff collection. There was the ever-present feeling of purposeful dishevelment and controlled chaos which was exemplified by the various decades whose influences could be seen, and all somehow worked together. The duo grounded the collection by not straying too far from the familiar—after all kitsch is in their DNA—off-setting the mainstream appeal with their signature, ostentatious, chunky platforms. It was the mix of it all and the feeling of “this is so wrong, but so right” that makes Meadham Kirchhoff always right.
