Discover the spring summer 2015 womenswear collection of designer Sally LaPointe presented during the latest New York Fashion Week.
The collection focuses on exploring relaxed silhouettes and separates. Lower hemlines, carefully draped tops and cropped, full-cut trousers are done in a cool-toned palate of black, optic white, lavender, blush, and hints of rich purple and magenta. Standout pieces include sculpted dresses in techno jersey, artisanal knits with ostrich feather accents, and bustier tops with hand beaded pearls and micro chain accents.
Furthering the concept of a fresh start, feathers, which LaPointe considers uplifting and symbolic of a higher power, are translated into oversized graphic prints. Images of feathers were magnified, producing a painterly effect, and are featured on several key dresses. Key fabrications include lightweight bonded silk, double-faced jersey, printed chiffon, pebbled leather and silk gazaar. – from Sally LaPointe
