For its Spring/Summer 2013 collection, the New York-based luxury brand InAisce (Gaelic for “In Vain”) takes its audience to a post-apocalyptic deconstruction in clothing. Offering a palette of muted chalkboard grays and blacks, which contrast with the hints of holographic and iridescent fabric, illustrating the brad’s preference for contrasting binary opposition. This was especially apparent in the contrasted use of iridescent fabrics and geometric shapes.
The 20-piece collection entitled Columna Cerului, thematically revolves around unconventional silhouettes and quiet symmetry. Many looks were either styled and paired with a shapeless, floppy hat or a pointed, structured one. The pieces also consisted of protracted blazers, bulky scarves, and tapered bottoms of varying lengths and layers. Columna Ceruli also experiments collar and lapel less shapes, creation a sense of genderless androgynous design.
