This collection actually makes me toss my thought about wearing more colors!
And I should have added to my resolutions, that I actually HAVE to try to make something sculptural, that almost covers your whole head. And drape... and make something convertible. Take a look:
Alessandra Marchi. A lovely mix of hard and soft fabrics, from her F/W 2010/11 collection.
It's amazing how every piece drapes the model's body.. like it would say "wear me or wear nothing".
I'm so fond of her collection, if you're interested in more, check it out here.
An example for something convertible. This picture shows how to wear the DKNY Cosy.
Similar to American Apparel's Le Sac Dress is Please Dress Up. Their summer collection from 2009 was called infinate possibilities, and is just that.
Another awesomeness: Complex Geometries
They also make quite a lot of convertible clothing, and what I like most about is, that it's quite avant-garde. Like this sheet t. Veeery awesome.
I'm too short for their apparel, so what. But I think she would look great in it.
And last but definitely not least: Harpuns Own. Damn, I want this 3-hole-blazer. And they also have a 3-hole-dress!
The 3 HOLE BLAZER is tailored with a high fitting slim arm and double back neck vents. The third hole allows it to be worn many different ways.
Also by Harpuns Own, the Swacket.
I think this will influence the things I will create this year pretty badly.
I'm a tailor, so I pretty much have no knowledge or grasp when it comes to draping.
This year I will push myself to get some garments done, which reach deeper into the subject than the "simple" pattern drafting.
One of my big goals is to make a subtraction dress from Julian Roberts. I think he's my temporary idol for the upcoming year.
