New York: SS 2010/11

Sunday, October 31, 2010

A month after New York Fashion Week, now that the dust has settled, these are our clear favourites.


We just can't help but feel that this collection showed us a subtle perfection: delicate, vibrant and sensitive. The crisp, simple yet relaxed silhouttes are a fine balance of post-Christopher Kane digital-print-astic floaty sheers; a wonderful play on filmy plastics, transparencies through skin or prints; and that splash of white or nude.


Keeping with Phillip Lim's crisp, smooth aesthetics and refined detailing that we know and love: he's used texturized 'organic' fibres and knits, laser cut leather, layers of camel and sheer. It's the perfect down-time that we truly appreciate now, post- all the glitz and frills that have been flying around past few seasons.


It's an evolution: lively and amorphous. They prowl down the runway, showing-off wild prints that move and shift between states of animal, ethnic, and twill. Simultaneously does the texture, weight of the fabrics evolve and blend. Becoming one single feminine and flirty silhouette. That, and the fearless use of colour, subtle use of skin and legs seems refreshingly Brazillian to us.
