Pre-Fall 10: Optical Geos
Derek Lam, Balenciaga, Just Cavalli, Derek Lam. Background: Pattern People
Stark and optical geos are seen all over the Pre-fall 10 collections. Balenciaga's line is stunning, with draped pants that are surely the next big thing in women's trouser shapes. Also present are crayola-colored stockings with what appear to be armored booty heels. Of course the line also presents a few other print trends that we'll cover later. Derek Lam's textural optical zig zaggy lines reminded us of just the sorts of prints we're currently working on.
