Show Review: Olcay Gulsen Fall/Winter 2013

Show Review: Olcay Gulsen Fall/Winter 2013

This afternoon fashionistas, editors, socialites, and tastemakers were invited to a private viewing of Olcay Gulsen’s Fall/Winter 2013 offerings at their downtown Manhattan loft.  Olcay Gulsen’s collection of luxe dresses and shoes are made for the red carpet, and this season the designer was inspired by the bold style of fashion risk-takers such as Rihanna, who doesn’t shy away from a high slit or deep V-neckline.  Choices in textiles for this collection consist of silk, leather, mesh, wool, and intricate brocade.

We enjoyed mimosas and hors d’oeuvres while previewing an array of sleek dresses and jumpsuits in Olcay Gulsen’s signature fluid, clean lines.  Structured silhouettes added strength and edge to feminine designs.  Fall neutrals ivory, black, and gray with splashes of Valentino red dominated the collection.  This season additional colors have been added to the line’s coveted extreme platform pumps as well as dresses, including their best-selling crossback dress. The collection skews saucy with a handful of cut-outs, oversized bows, and racy leather mini dresses.

My favorite piece from the collection is a mixed media leather and mesh dress that has long sleeves and strategically placed paneled insets. I also loved an off-white leather dress with shoulder cutouts.  Other interesting additions to the collection are the new Ready-to-Wear pumps and wedges that Olcay Gulsen has introduced, for the fashionista who isn’t quite ready for those 7″ sky-high platform pumps that are a celeb favorite!

I can see Angela Simmons, Kristin Cavallari, Emily B., Rocsi Diaz, Eva Longoria, and Sophia Bush wearing pieces from this collection. Special thank you to Dolshe Gulsen for the personal invite!  Check out more from Olcay Gulsen’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection in the gallery below and shop the looks at Shopbop.
