How much of fashion is fantasy? How do you bring dreams into reality? My favorite designer Byron Lars just released a surrealist video presentation for his Spring 2012 collection last week. He wanted to democratize the presentation experience by making it accessible to all and at your convenience. (This is a much appreciated sentiment after the chaos of NY Fashion week).
The Spring 2012 collection of Byron Lars is presented in dreamy, dramatic fashion with a sense of humor. The clothes themselves are picking up some of the trends from fall, but with a lighter, updated twist. Belted jacket and dresses had detailed embroidery or faux leather pailettes. Ruched chiffon made for voluminous collars, or styled as an alternative to fur (shout-out to PETA members...)
The signature flattering silhouettes with intricate seaming was in play with shirts and shirtdresses. Prints also made their way into the collection via crocheted fabric mash-ups. Trapunto stitching gave texture to belts and other details.
When you're ready to walk on the wilder side, come join me this side of the moon.
