COLLECTION| Isabel Garcia SS15
The Isabel Garcia SS15 collection hit the Fashion Scout catwalk in style this afternoon as creative director Elliott James Frieze displayed billowing chiffons and intricately detailed silks drawing upon Asian influences throughout the collection.
Antique, watercolour prints came to life in delicate, airy silhouettes all exuding an elegant, ultra feminine aesthetic, cinched waists juxtaposed against floating palazzo trousers and chiffon skirts to create a striking balance of structure and fluidity. Dragonfly and butterfly print featured heavily through abstract printed chiffons and hand embroidered satin textures.
Attention to detail is key throughout Frieze's collection with screen printing, foiling, embossed leathers and elaborate bead work taking centre stage. Accessories are oversized, with thick belts, elongated white scarves and giant tasselled bags taking to the catwalk all in sumptuous muted leathers. A series of beaded lace pieces offers a sleeker more defined silhouette to the collection as full skirted pleated dresses provide a stunning contrast.
Kimono style dresses in muted shades of peach, aqua, lime and yellow effortlessly glide down the catwalk, beautifully embellished and trailing tassels in contrasting tones. A diverse colour palette ranges from muted pastels to lavish jewel tones as Isabel Garcia introduce us to their take on Asian inspired design.
