Sharon Wauchob highlighted military insignia as the starting point for her Fall 2014; rather than interpreting this literally, however, Wauchob infused her looks with the ethos of military clothing. The clothes were tough, well made, and created to move. Wauchob used collage to paint the body, as if her models were undressing before your very eyes. Take the above, look 15, as an example: layers of silk mix are cloaked with the beginning of a light fur coat, casually falling off the shoulder, and the hemline is lifted with a slit coming up the thigh. The look is sexy, but understated. Who knew being noncommittal could look so good?
