(ImaxTree) Alexandre Herchcovitch fall 2013
At first glance, if I had to peg the one main idea behind Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchcovitch
's fall 2013 collection it would be this: Take Your Top Off. For the most part, Herchcovitch's fall pieces were voluminous, gleaming silk, lushly printed in graphic florals or stripes—and the models strode the runway in various states of undress... a fallen strap here, a bodice undone there, a partially removed shirt neatly tucked along the waistline.
Post-show notes indicate that the collection aimed to "bring to clothes the shapes and structures of flowers, transforming women in the blooms of an exotic, delicate garden... The collection also shows a strong erotic feeling when the clothing, similar to the petals of flowers, fall from the body revealing lingerie-inspired pieces." And, unlike other shows where styling is particularly important to the presentation, Herchcovitch's fall pieces are to be worn as they're cut—"falling apart and deconstructed."
It's a simple and gorgeous idea—behold with your own eyes:(ImaxTree) Alexandre Herchcovitch fall 2013(ImaxTree) Alexandre Herchcovitch fall 2013(ImaxTree) Alexandre Herchcovitch fall 2013(ImaxTree) Alexandre Herchcovitch fall 2013
