Things are definitely getting spunkier and more rock ‘n’ roll-ish for Sane of Molly’s Autumn/ Winter 2012 collection.
The Bangkok-based fashion label b known for concocting designs that are classic yet unique and wearable in the inspired styles of East London, has just showcased their collection at the MQ Vienna Fashion Week (VFW) Austria.
Entitled “The Rebirth of the Rebellion”, this season’s collection marks the rebirth of a new era, a revival of rock ‘n’ roll with an evidential confidence and a strong attitude in the collection.
And for that, bold silhouettes and corset outlines that echo the Egyptian and Renaissance era are dominant in the collection. It is simply ‘more is more’ with a high play of drapes and voluminous layerings in the dresses as well as skirts in a varied colour palette that are inspired by French artist Henri Matisse’s colourful paintings.
But what I like about the collection is the fact that it’s not shy with the incorporating of exquisite embellishments in the form of gold geometric lines on the shoulders, stones and studs, portraying much rockability factor especially when paired with a dressy leather boots and some studs accessories.
And of course, if given a choice, my pick from the collection would have to be the orange double-breasted houndstooth trenchcoat that you can never go wrong with, and that supremely draped olive-hued bandaged dress whose details are headturning in an arresting manner.
And while the women’s collection is tad bit dressier, the men’s collection, on the other hand, is rather toned down with supremely cut and tailored garbs in the way that I would like a man to wear.
Featuring a slim-cut silhouette collection, the look is an ode to contemporary-vintage rock ‘n’ roll with the re-born of loose shirt, the tuxedo shirt as well as the introduction of new length of shorts and jeans pants.
What’s noticeably prominent is the heavy vintage style in the collection.
From a polo shirt with a porcupine logo at the chest to subtly polka-dot shirts and checkered shorts with suspenders, it’s very much like the 1950s fashion, albeit a dandy nostalgia mood isn’t it?
So for those of you who love vintage apparels in a sensible rockability, Sane of Molly‘s spanking new collection is for you!
