Ohne Titel Spring 2011

Scuba gear!  I love those bodysuit neoprene pieces that just conform to the line of the body. Gorgeous.  I like the sportier edge that Ohne Titel has; it’s different from their normal dark club scene edge.  I love the introduction of color into their collection.  It sets off really well against the black scuba gear.  The models look like they could launch into high level athletics at any moment; the sleekness of the looks ensure they chic while doing it.  It’s a nice change for Alexa Adams and Flora Gill who are normally more underground concert scene than anything.  This collection introduces pieces of art which is very apt considering their name (Untitled after the artist Anselm Kiefer, who left many of his pieces untitled).  One can clearly see the thought and work that has gone into the designs, but the creations are all effortlessly carried off in real life.  Which is rarely well executed.

ADAM Spring 2011

Credit: NY Magazine

Pretty airy presentation from Adam Lippes.  Not much else I can really say.  It’s going to be really marketable, which isn’t actually a bad thing.  I really liked the distressed layers to that one dress though (look 3 here); it’s like piling on silk.  What I have found is that the proportions are nicely done and that’s nothing to scoff about.  Designers occasionally try to do too much and overwhelm the clothes when they can stand as is.  Lippes show precision and grace in his collection.  Oh and that top knot is awesome.  Perfect for summer.
