We are now getting a glimpse of what to expect this time next year from all the major designers, and the lineup looks quite promising.
We have singled out three weave masters whose themes and color schemes are eloquently linked in a way that sets up the ultimate collage.
Zac Posen has created a symphony that comprises of decadently embroidered pieces and an homage to the delicate frailties of the perfect “China doll”. The gowns showcased are decadently dramatic with frilly features and revealing cuts that increase the glam factor. Any girl aiming for a stunning entrance wont be disappointed donning one of his numbers.
Jason Wu also has a raging theme that overwhelms his collection and he purposefully describes it as ”Charley Harper meets the maharaja”. The pieces are richly textured and charismatically sophisticated without leaving the simple-minded customer in the dust. The materials are also a worldly mix of chiffon, camel hair and prime brocade that come together to create his most sophisticated and luxurious line to date. He also debuts his newest accessory – the “Daphne bag”.
Finally we turn to Ports 1961, and with head designer Fiona Cibani at the helm, we are treated to splatters of inspiration courtesy of Hungarian artist Victor Vasarely, whose imprints are indented in most of the pieces. The hues are bold and independently supported by classic motifs like the houndstooth detail. The silhouettes adorn the female form like a glove inspiring that perfect fit.
These mini snippets provide an insightful slideshow that assures us that the flow of creativity is not ebbing anytime soon.
