Spring 2017 Notes & Inspiration
Notes & Inspiration
Embark on an exploration of volumes both soft and structured. South American Gaucho tailoring and details can be traced in oversized trousers, laced tops, metal hardware, and pristine crochet and fringe. Utilitarian fabrics such as traditional khaki and engineer striped denim are elevated with a similar hand featuring western stitching and exaggerated proportions. Proportions are balanced with silhouettes that flirt close to the body featuring delicate plissé, handmade crochet, and corsetry detailing.The colors of the sunset prevail as pale yellow, lavender, and shots of bright pink and coral darken to midnight blue. Painterly gestures continue the story of movement as watercolor and block printed florals dance across the collection. Continued emphasis on weaving myriad influences and hand wrought techniques into a global mosaic filtered through a uniquely American eye.
