I usually look to London for edgy, sometimes quirky looks. And this season, there was plenty of that. However, this time around, there were a few really wearable looks with just enough edge to keep them from teetering into that no man's land of boring frocks. With this report, I chose a few key garments I thought would translate well for our dolls. Many of the silhouettes are familiar. It's simply a question of fabric, detail or styling!
THE EDGE OF NIGHT
Big city chic just got bolder. I like the crispness of black and white with a sliver of asymmetrical contrast. This is achieved by cutting the design right into the pattern, then fitting it back together like a simple jigsaw puzzle. The oversize lithographic print (applied by transfer method) is also a nice touch to this summer in the city theme.
Okay, so Apple has a new iPhone and Samsung is doing a one upping it with a bigger Galaxy Note. Our Fitbit trackers will soon be made obsolete by the crush of new smart watches. It's about time designers are inspired by the techno trends of our global world. We see it spelled out in shades of aluminum, copper, titanium brushed metals and wired circuit boards expressed through shiny satin, metallic lace and corrugated textures. The ultimate message here....Keep it Simple!
