As we have all noted, Spring/Summer 2014 is all about metallics and sheer/shimmery fabrics. Sorapol’s S/S14 collection, Tevana, demonstrates this trend in an individual way that shows the designer’s ability to create figure flattering and silhouette enhancing garments. The collection oozes femininity in a sexualised but classy way, dressing the female in, not a provocative, but an often daring manner. One of the looks within the collection is a metallic corset, which clings to the bust and torso but drapes at the base (almost armour like), which is layered over what looks like a pearl white/silver dress. The dress beneath the corset is indescribable, in essence, it looks like it has a mermaid tail base but it drapes in an almost ‘bride-like’ way.
Other garments within the collection include: a plain long dress with a peacock blue, feather covered torso and a pearl white sheer raincoat. Not to belittle the colour within this collection, yes metallic/pearl tones are a key focus but Sorapol’s emphasis on the female form is vital. This is specifically demonstrated through the floaty 50s dress, which has an open (mesh) front breast, a teal hem and floral patterns throughout, adorning this beautiful royal blue fabric.
