It’s all about layering, aesthetically vintage fabrics, unusual facial constraints and contouring of the female body. Yes, that’s right. We are talking about Isabell Yalda Hellysaz’s AW14 collection. It’s sharp, tailored, feminine but strangely androgynous in parts. Tailored suit trousers and elongated jackets scream ‘strong, independent and sophisticated female’, whilst stockings, leather and mesh are suggestive and create this allure of the sexualised female body. By blending the feminine with the masculine, Isabell has cleverly and innovatively distorted the fashion norms by adding variety and a mixture of textural styles to her collection. The Stockholm, Sweden based designer originally studied graphics but her career soon advanced into the field of fashion. Her first collection was launched in June 2012 at Hackney House and ever since the young designer has gained global recognition. This collection is just one example of the designer’s fine craftsmanship and seamless sewing technique. No one knows what’s next but we sure look forward to finding out.
