In an interview last year David Laport said to be focusing on art. “The more experimental the job, the better”, he stated on Idependent Fashion Daily. So today’s collection, inspired by Laport’s fascination for insects, was surprisingly wearable. He beautifully mixed light and heavy fabrics into elegant, ladylike, asymmetric creations. Rigid tops and sheer, airy skirts and vice versa. Pleated parts and lace (made in Austia) details. Mostly in blacks and whites with touches of turquoise, soft pink and blue. Feathers, tulle and a specially treated type of nylon which can create larger volumes, gave the looks a dreamy ballerina association, while the patent leather parts kept them grounded. Although, it was as if the last angel, dressed in a sculptured, sheer, feathery black creation, could have just floated off of the runway.
