Channeling Princess Lea (with the hair) along with numerous hints of sci-fi inspiration (capes and galactic boots), this collection lacks nothing but maybe a few light sabers. Romantic velvet and light sheers are balanced with structured cuts portraying an ultra sexy girl that you would not want to mess with. The sheer gowns with strategically pieced silver embellishments somewhat resemble another ethereal kind of species.
Cold weather season is no reason to circumvent light hues–and certainly not white. Osman’s all-white collection was anything but bleak. The intermixing of rococo styled embroidery, structure, light sheers, and fur was executed with the utmost sophistication. Hints of black from the fur clutches and in the sleek pumps tastefully add dimension to each ensemble.
Already known for her realistic scenic prints and sleek construction, this collection did not disappoint, but even more so emphasized her visionary and creative ability. Although the sculptural garments are canvases for scenes and landscapes each’s overall construction and design are visually stunning. Once again Mary Katrantzou has displayed a genius display of wearable art.
While heavy clothing are expected for the fall and winter shows, Erdem’s runway was in full bloom. The ultra feminine prints were toned down with dashes of black whether in the trim, embellishment, or sheer panels. While for some, the collection may seem like a frenzy, for us, it is an exhilarating celebration of floral for all seasons.
