LABB LOVES ..... IOANNIS DIMITROUSIS' A/W 2010
AND IT GLOWS IN THE DARK
Oh yes! you did read right. Ioannis' new collection does glow in the dark. But don't let that fool you into thinking we are talking about some tacky, crazy dress in some stretch day glow / neon fabric.
No no no, its knitwear, exquisite, well manipulated and brilliantly constructed pieces.
Every couple of years we all find a new designer who hits the right notes each season and we look forward to seeing what they do next. Ioannis Dimitrousis is one of them. The deceptive simplicity of his collections gives a lot of food for thought, and his A/W 2010 collection did not disappoint.
Featuring intricate constructions that appear as loose structures, stunning zip handles, beads and conical shapes on the bodies that are very reminiscent of Marje circa the 80's (but done in a very modern way). This new collection is a collectors dream as it delivers FASHION-ART to marvel at.
LABB VERDICT: intricacy and creativity 10/10. We all want one, so should you.
