Elise Øverland - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2008
(NEW YORK) This Milk Studios presentation featured models standing in a group while two drummers provided the background beats. “My inspiration emerges from a rather specific image-the powerful soul-filled warrior that exists in eyery era,” Overland said of her Spring 2008 collection, which fused powerful graphic imagery, mixing a rock and roll attitude with feminine shapes. Containing a polished but raw quality, Overland's designs contrast bold and soft elements, while colors are focused and deliberate: shimmering blues and lilacs blended with rustic metallics and bone neutrals. Fabrics include hand-dyed silks and washed and treated leathers, accented with hardware created in collaboration with Justin Giunta of Subversive Jewelry.
