New York Fashion Week is a hard time to show for any brand. It is overwhelming and at at times outright brutal. So to be able to do it over and over again and maintain a certain level of consistency in your work become far more important as all eyes are on you. Daniel Wingate knows that and Escada pulls it off year after year being the solid brand it is. This spring/summer collection may be influenced by the colors of africa but has distinctly 70s silhouettes and high waisted pants. Escada's contribution to Hillary Clinton's pant suit has become sort of an iconic engagement for better or for worse. But the brand remains true to its core philosophy and this year is no different. Escada may not stand out, but it is surely not standing down.
