Olivia Palmero in Das
There is nothing literal about the S/S 2012 Ready-to-Wear DAS collection when it comes to Ancient Greece or Roma. However, in referencing the period fashion during the reign of these Empires, the Beljafla sisters where inspired by the era’s mystical and style prowess when designing their new line entitled” Goddess”. Envisioning a woman walking through the market place on streets of cobblestone, the Beljaflas see this Goddess as regal, with a surrounding girth of beauty, strength and pride, as the garment she wears flows in sync with the wind. The designer’s intentions were to create a collection that projects these characteristics through the elements infused in their divine pieces.
With intentions of making this DAS line very feminine, classic and fun, the silhouette of the garments cascade around the body, elegantly draped in combinations of shears and solid fabrics giving it levels of depth and dimension. The usage of fabrics in layering creates a flow and cohesiveness to the construction in both single and paired pieces. Material such as, metal give the illusion to the reference of armour, as well as dramatic techniques used to broaden the shoulders by adding panelled embroidery, which also gives the look strength and a sense of entitlement.
Be sure to follow Das collection showcasing at Vauxhall Fashion Scout at House of Evolution this Sunday at the Freemason Hall.
