The fairy-tale book 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' provided the inspiration for the Charlotte Ronson Fall 2014 collection that recently walked the runway at New York Fashion Week. Although black was a prominent color in the looks, they are only dark in color and not tone — as usual, Ronson delivered a collection that’s hip, feminine and wearable.
Elements from the classic children’s book like the mention of poppies and the velvet of Little Lord Fountleroy’s suit work their way into the collection’s prints, fabrics and modernize attire from the 1800s into a modern, desirable womenswear collection.
Ronson has seen huge commercial success in her work with UNIQLO, JCPenney and Urban Outfitters, so this latest collection is fit to bring more her way.
