Trend Alert: Asymmetric Origami Inspired Fashion
The influence of Japanese culture on all matters fashion is self evident, not least in the case of origami inspired dressing. The images above were compiled by Trend de la Creme from the Spring 2009 collections of Raffles Beijing, Richard Nicoll, and Phi, Bernard Chandran, Lie Sang Bong, Phi, Aminaka Wilmont, Max Chernitsov, Gianfranco Ferré, Roland Mouret, Bruno Pieters, Konstantina Mittas, Christian Lacroix, Calvin Klein and Jolibe, who all featured “Origami” style fashion on their runways.
Real world looks are always adapted from the runway versions, and even though this trend seems to have been around for a while, and can be witnessed by the ready-to-wear Proenza Schouler versions, which appear at many shopping sites and stores, it seems it’s a trend we will continue to embrace!
I think this look is best kept short on the bottom and lots of volume on top!!!
We pick. You shop. Editor selections from our June issue available through our online retailer, Mr Porter.com.
