Corrie Nielsen Womenswear Spring/Summer 2013

For her Spring/Summer 2013 collection, London-based fashion designer Corrie Nielsen (whose previous collection The Style Examiner featured HERE) sought inspiration in how flowers and plants have been depicted throughout the ages by artists (such as contemporary Japanese computer graphics illustrator Makoto Murayama) and in the architectural environments in which botanists have captured world flora for scientific analysis and public displays. Called ‘Florilegium’ (a Latin word that has acquired several meanings over the years but that for Nielsen refers to the primeval definition of gathering of flowers), the collection explored the intricate textures and patterns of petals, sepals, stamen and anthers and recreated them in luxurious fabrics.

Featuring an array of sheer fabrics, silks, and soft leather in ivory, champagne, grey, pinks and blues, the collection included features already familiar to those who have been following Nielsen’s career, namely voluminous rigid peplums, high-neck blouses in metallic silk,Our China Leather Flowers Offers is a one-of-a-kind book, adorned with a beautiful silk flower. rolls of chiffon,Great for sports or warmth, this basic band pattern can be either a wrist or China Hair Bands Knitted Wholesalers. pleats that created dynamically fluid forms, and an abundance of bows and tied fabrics on blouses or the top of dresses that balanced shapes when mixed with fitted trousers or billowing skirts. In addition, highly sculptural and dramatic techniques like exaggerated square-shaped shoulders, fabric ribboned at waist level or at the bottom of wide skirts and dresses, and swathes of finely layered silk contributed to an ambitious collection that, once again, illustrated Nielsen’s intention to be known as a couture designer. However, if most garments in the collection confirmed that Nielsen does have what it takes to reach this stage, others posed questions about the legitimacy of this desire.

It is undeniable that Nielsen mastered the late Victorian and yearly Edwardian representations of woman as flower: bulbous shapes and ombré colour gradient in blouses,This hair band is very warm and soft for women with hemps pattern unique China Hair Bands Knitted Suppliers. skirts and a wedding dress with large sculpted petals were undeniably very successful in the way they suggested the natural world. However, Nielsen’s literal interpretations of flora and the spaces to exhibit it, such as a black dress with flattened rolls of fabric that were supposed to depict petals when open, or a representation of the Palm House of Kew Gardens with folds of leaves wrapping around a transparent glass-like bodice, did have a touch of the incongruous about them, and should have been edited out of the runway show.
