In a room filled with A-listers including Mary J. Blige, Babyface, Laverne Cox, June Ambrose, and countless others, LaQuan Smith unveiled his Spring/Summer 2024 collection. The high-octane energy of the entire room had the location on Broome Street buzzing.
“This collection was all about bold proportions, strong tailoring, power suiting if you will, we did use a lot of leather in the collection,” Smith said immediately following the presentation. The proportions he shared included a baby blue gown in a faux croc material—he also had plenty of hot pant pieces that exuded sexiness.
On who the LaQuan Smith woman is, the designer divulges that she’s someone who wears silk in the winter and leather in the summer. In other words, she’s someone who unabashedly walks to the beat of her own drum. He also mentions that she pushes boundaries whilst finding statement pieces that she will have in her closet “for the rest of her life.”
