PRE-FALL 2013: PURE SCULPTURE
Connecting the dots—day to night, season to season—
As inspired by my husband Stephan’s book and art exhibit.
Sportswear is elemental: pure in form, weightless and flexible.
Sculpted to the body, tailored to life in the city.
The palette is starkly graphic: Black. Asphalt. Ash. Slate. Henna.
Matte one minute, glistening the next.
The silhouette is sculpted, seamed and suspended—
In bonded neoprene crepe or jersey, flashed with sheer and skin.
It’s the Seven Easy Pieces with a sculptural take,
Lean to round, pared down or layered up—
The silhouette is always changing.
Start with the body foundation, whether in separates or combined into one:
The bodysuit, bodydress, seamed body skirt, skinny pants.
Then proportion as desired with the tailored finish:
The crop molded shell that skims the torso.
The peplum cinched with a stretch belt.
The elongated tailored jacket.
The kimono coat in crushed paper lightness, loose or belted.
Expand the options: The minidress that doubles as a tunic over pants.
The soft sculpture top that stands on its own.
The voluminous skirt in neoprene or taffeta.
The envelope–folded crepe trouser—liquid and pegged.
The city leather biker. The woven leather and chiffon shrug.
These are modern clothes that echo the elements of the city:
Architectural. Evolving forward. Always glamorous.
The art of the body…connected to the art of life.
