Question of the Day
Strapless and sporty? No problem.
She incorporated the athletic trend already tangible during this round of previews. Never mind that she’s known mostly as a source of red-carpet gowns.
There were worthwhile design elements to borrow from activewear, she said, including sporty necklines and aerodynamic striping and slashing. Her runway had a cobalt-blue racing stripe down the middle.
She also tapped into the popular optimistic color palette that editors, stylists and retailers are getting used to seeing for next season. “I used a lot of vibrant yellows, as you can see. A lot of blues,” Lhuillier said.
The label founded by U2’s Bono and wife Ali Hewson presented a mix of breezy, delicate florals and edgy laser-cut silks studded with rocker metal grommets.
Bright color lit up the runway in a dark, cavernous warehouse, including some hand dying in indigo using a technique from Mali on a flared jacket made of recycled hemp.
There were reds from a deep clay to a light salmon in African-inspired prints, tangerine in a parachute romper and solids in a range of whites, from silvery to bright.
A diamond print was featured on slouch trousers paired with a matching halter. The print was carried over to several other looks, including a silk scarfdress with matching jersey leggings.
Organic white mesh for a jumpsuit had shorts laser cut in a fluttery petal shape. That detailing, along with the round metal trim, were all over the runway in short dresses, loose shorts, halter tops and trousers.
The company, founded in 2005, produces some of its clothes in Africa. With the help of artisan nuns in Kenya known as the “crochet sisters,” the line includes their black, hand-knotted skirt and fitted dress trimmed in leather.
Hewson said in an interview before the show that Edun’s latest collection is “kind of innocent but tough” as she tries to bring an “ethical” and steady, sustainable manufacturing industry to Africa.
Ronson gave her youthful customer a bit of a history lesson.
