Recap from NYFW Fall 2011
Custo Dalmau’s packed show started with a pure palette of neutral colors. But as the show continued, it slowly made a transition that was filled with splashes of colors, clashing prints, wild mix of patterns, which were accentuated with different textures from fur, fringe, and voluminous ruffles. He titles his show Clean… But Not Really. We see many extravagant pieces that created a dramatic overall look through layering. Sheer, lace, draped silk, were some of the fabrics used with different patterns and color tones. Each piece had an intricate detailing of their own- mainly because of the added embellishments or overlapping textures. If one was to separate the pieces, each item would be able to compliment a simple top or dark jeans to perfection.
P.S. I enjoyed creating these collage!
