FWA - day 3, Sotiris Georgiou

I've been wanting to post about this show the minute the last model took the final turn to backstage. I had read about Sotiris Georgiou on Battered Couture last November, but actually seeing his collection with my own eyes was quite a revelation. It was all there: innovation, wearable experimentation, coherence in both style and styling, handmade touches. Womenswear and menswear equally wow. Now that's something you don't see everyday.

Theme: Perplexity. Reflected by perplexed wool and cable-chaos details.
Inspiration: the paintings of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock (the girl who is Battered Couture knew it all along)
Shapes: 60's and 80's influences, tight lines, incoherent shapes on coats for her and sophisticated elegance for him.
Fabrics: crepe, wool, cashmere, silk, lace, cotton inox.

Extract: As the designer Sotiris Georgiou states in batteredcouture.blogspot.com: "Pollock expresses somehow this confusion and chaos we are experiencing both socially and personally in our times. I am interested in the chaotic concept that has neither beginning nor end".

And somehow, we are all there.

Why-oh-why did I come late that day and missed it??? Damn!
I loved the clothes and the semiotics behind them

confusion and chaos -> perplexed lines -> tangled threads
