Fall 10: Conversationals
Douglas Hannant, Marni, Versus, Marni
Jeremy Scott, Betsey Johnson x2, Paul Smith Women
Faces, people, animals, guns, horses and more stark geometric things (coming in the next post) are popping up in the collections of a wide range of designers. Christopher Kane uses photographs for his Versus line, as he did in his eponymous gorilla face dress for Spring 09. This time, he uses Bruce Weber's photography and photo hues become the collection's color story. Marni's abstracted simple shape faces are interesting, as is her use of chalky bright pastels.
