Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Day 4
The show I most wanted to see was the one from Jesus Ibarra + Bertholdo.
As explained in one of my previous posts, the first collection I saw from these designers, changed my expectations of fashion, my exact words were "Art was walking down the runway."
This time the designers traveled to Kyoto to find inspiration for their SS13 collection.
Jesus Ibarra and Bertholdo Espinoza sketched a collection inspired by the Imperial Gardens of Kyoto, embodied through kimono-type robes, bat-sleeved blouses , cauda pants, palazzos flares at short and long dresses with embroidery and applications, some accompanied by wide leather belts.
25 risky combinations in green grass, olive leaf and lemon, and various types of pink, red and smoked red. Materials such as satin, organza, chiffon and georgette silk mixed with linen, raw silk, leather and natural stone applications were shown at the runway.
The shoes where made by Adriana Soto, consisted of bikini type sandals with heel in colors such as gray, pink, orange, brick and nude.
This collection is definitely something I would use. I like the mixture of loose silhouette with sports, especially on dresses. It gives a casual and chic touch.
The best thing is that you can use this clothes even with sneackers, which makes it more wearable and comfortable to everyone.
This collection was named "Love my Love"
