With a fragmented hand, speed, racing and a sense of endangerment are abstractly captured in the Spring 2012 collection. The speed and velocity of high performance sports like dirt biking and NASCAR racing are reflected through variations of mesh and technical methods of lasering, burn-outs and perforation. The presence of mesh recurs bringing an x-ray effect that encourages fluidity when applied to stiff fabrics and leathers. When shown out of context, fabrics are reinterpreted to feel bourgeois, like double faced organza and silk taffeta.
Prints play an important role this season and are repeated throughout the collection, such as a feminine botanical print that is collaged and patterned; in some instances, fade to white. The sports theme is referenced again in a more literal regard in prints that are emblems of stadium seating and roadway signs.
A more controlled silhouette is introduced for Spring with cinched waists and oversized panels create a peplum profile. The color palate stays neutral with petrol blue, deep burgundy, chalky white, palm, mint, and a pop of emergency orange. For accessories, underworld sea creatures inspire the range with materials of parrot fish, perch and rubberized stingray.
