Whenever you see creativity on the runway you can’t help but stare or drool over every last detail. I’ve been a fan of Laurel DeWitt for some time, I mean come on she does metal apparel, how cool is that?. We cover her show every season and for Spring/Summer 2016 her collection did not disappoint. Her ever evolving-craft and attention to detail makes every piece a work of art. A romantic fantasy with regal jewel tones takes you to a modern day take on medieval fashion. As if the knights amour mixed with the Queens jewels and was reinvented for the 21st century.
Striking a distinct 1930s note taking colorful cue from Elsa Schiaparelli, Ms. DeWitt’s current collection débuts not only a deeply hued array of elegant separates — introducing shagreen, leather, and fabric lacing to her already complex repertoire — but also doses the collection with metal flowers, entirely hand-cut, hand-rolled, and hand-painted to create a stunning display of incredible appliqué work rivaled by few in its detail and labor. I’m completely obsessed with the gold flower pieces, especially this outfit above. It’s beyond amazing!
