Dion Lee Fall/Winter 2016-2017 collection, NYFW. Dion Lee the name to remember!

Australian designer Dion Lee is certainly ready for a large stage, as NYFW. A lot of us remember him about his „Debut“ during London Fashion Week, in 2012. It’s tempting to describe the appeal of Lee’s clothes in terms of their technical accomplishments: the geometry of the silhouettes; the innovative, architectural quality of the construction; the unexpected materials artfully deployed. Lee’s main focus this season was on making direct clothes,he got at directness by way of a handful of abstract ideas. One was to construct clothes such that they seemed to float away from the Body and the second one was to make clothes appear backlit—hence the motifs of perforation and crystal dappled onto material or bonded into it.  His play with hardware was very intrigiung and same time very sophisticated . Lee tried to create the tension between functional  and ornamental details, the hoop-shaped  jewelry of varying size are piercing the garments.
