Complexgeometries SS 2009 shirt.

Case study. Quality fashion, for me, falls under art. A form of sculpture itself. The garment's perception, as the point of interest, should not be interrupted. With its rich form or texture, and perhaps your own sensitivity, you are allowed to seamlessly slide from bare arms, legs, or hair into the focal point of a visually active surface. With the comprehension of its quality there's no need to accessorize to seek some form of balance, because more likely all that you would gain is distraction or clutter.

i believe that too, accessorizing can be a distraction and the clothing should do all the talking.

but i think if you dont own the clothes you truly wish for, ie designer clothes...sometimes its needed. however having said that, even though i dont own much designer i never or hardly wear jewelery, i just find it too much.

You, Divintus, are a wonderful distraction .

I think that is a beautiful claim...fashion is a form of art indefinitely. The garment should speak for itself, without the aid of accessories.

This dress is amazing and I love that you kept it plain. You wear this complex dress very well, as I imagine it would be hard for just anyone to pull off.

thanks for your recent comment, I appreciate your kindness during this hard time. :)

wobblinbetty said...

you look perfect for modelling complex geomtries!

Veronicahhh said...

agreed. but we also can't undermine the fact that these garments become art once they interact with the wearer. A stunning garment on a rack is still waiting to realize its full potential.

Trixy said...

Beautiful. I love your detailing of it as well -- so well articulated and true.
