Alessandra Meskita, the Brazilian-born designer and former creative director of Christian Audigier, displayed her AW2014 collection at the Salon at Lincoln Center last Sunday night at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Meskita’s new collection, inspired by 2014—the Chinese Year of The Horse—turned heads as she introduced her new “woman.” Models were presented as horses, each wearing high and tight pony tails in varying natural hair colors and contrasting dipped ends, dark leather platform clogs, and half gloves angled over their fingers.

The collection combined the silhouettes and tight tailoring reminiscent of classic New York City, but the movement and flow of the garments evoked the relaxation of California. One particularly alluring look included a model, wearing blonde hair with dipped black ends, outfitted in a baby pink tailored neoprene dress suit. This, followed by an assortment of stunningly tailored neoprene garments, gave a strong showing for this sporty fabric that’s exploding on Europe’s runways; a fabric that brings some of us back to the 80s.

Meskita’s design finds balance somewhere between classic style and modern edge. Her neoprene sportswear, tailored to a luxury market, adds a sleek and unique touch into a field where masses all to often are searching for basics.
