Jeremy Laing - New York Spring 2010
(NEW YORK) Jeremy Laing's spring collection was the definition of avant-garde. The designer combined texture, print and soft yet structured forms to create unexpected, artful looks. There were taupe dresses covered in a graph-like print, jagged geometric color blocking that created a prism effect and leggings cut into quadrants with clean black lines. "We tried to work in as many textures and colors as possible while still being really harmonious and beautiful," said Laing.
Most appealing were rows of white leather tiling that ran in diagonals on a rough white and grey dress and wrapped around all sides of a spliced seafoam tunic. While many looks were more conceptual than wearable, a black and granite dress topped with an angular vest was an industrial evening option and an oversized white and grey blazer, along with a delicate linen overcoat will certainly get picked up by style-savvy customers.
