ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Vera Wang maintained a five hue color story for her Fall 2013 collection that debuted at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York on Tuesday (February 12). The New York designer played with geometric shapes on sleeveless coats and vests. Wang described the look as "sculptural silhouettes". "Proportion, volume. You know, the construction of clothing. Not that soft, but very - with structure, like architecture," Wang told Reuters. Black stain, fox and jewels were used for several evening looks. Large sleeves, which Wang interpreted as "bishop sleeves," were used on top of jeweled tops. Variations of swing tops made from tweed, silk and jewels, provided the collection with some movement in a field of structural pieces. Strong tangerine and magenta were blended with stone rose for several evening looks. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week will run until Thursday (February 14) in New York. More than 90 designers were scheduled to show their fall collections at Lincoln Center and in other venues around the city.
