Alice McCall AW13

With light blue eye lashes, the models walked down the runaway of Alice McCall spring/summer 2013 in a collection that quite oddly combines futuristic architecture and yet having an expression rhyming with bohemian rhapsody. Because of the complexity of some of the more experimental pieces, it first would have suggested 3d printing, but after some consideration it probably just reveals great handcraft and talent for printing. Those pieces in particular were without question the high point of the show, for it really embodied the vision of botanical and sea life  she had in mind for the collection. There were a palette of navy, orange, oyster gray, peach and metallic, coming together in frills and flares and almost floating metallic fabrics in contrast to the large shoulders that reminisced shells. The flower printed cotton pieces, a black and white striped dress and a pair of tunics on the other hand looked dull and misplaced when appearing in the lot, if she only would have excluded these looks in particular, her vision would have come through all the way.

Dion Lee AW13

832849-1_l

The designer that put Australia on the map was Dion Lee after showing his debut collection in 2008, who became known for his futuristic aesthetics which presents itself through meticulous tailoring and technological printing in mostly pastel hues. This season however, the more edgier mood was set by the nighttime to manifest itself in a darker colour scale of blue and black and a bunch of sophisticated silhouettes that lacked his usual sculpturing. It was definitely a more wearable approach to his previous collections, and less architectural experimentation in terms of shapes yet it still included a new cast of graphical prints seen on cocktail dresses. Besides prints, a notable detail was the the cut out patterns that resembled the braided details in the second last look, also a hallmark of his. One could say Dion Lee played his safe card this season, perhaps it is the tough market, but such potential should anyhow not be suppressed.
