On the fringe of fashion
Elegance has a dark side. But it’s only a game of seduction. It takes more to fall in love. Such as impeccable craftmanship, for example. An area in which Eleanor Amoroso does not disappoint with her latest collection for A/W 2012-13.
If each season has its light, its warmth, its perfume in the air, then for fashion designer Eleanor Amoroso, each season is an occasion to revisit knitwear styles no longer in use.
Like the art of macramé, a refined knotting technique of Arab origin, already used in her A/W 2010-11 collection. In this new season though, the designer focuses more on macro textures rather than sculptural details. With silhouettes composed of knotted patterns and loose fringes.
Contrasting the raw nerve of the motifs are delicate flourishes of feathers that create an ethereal fur effect. And the minimal, shiny detailing in copper adds a modern and luxurious touch to the garments.
After having debuted at Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s London Fashion Week, this collection is now visible at Fashion Space Gallery as part of the exhibition "New Fashion: Interventions in Materials and Techniques". Not to be missed!
