“My Fall/Winter 2016 collection was first inspired by artist Sheila Hicks’ “Art of the Yarn” exhibit. After researching her work and the idea of yarn design as a form of art, Christian Siriano became inspired by all the many different techniques of knitting and weaving in fabrications. They looked at different ways to knit, twist and manipulate fabric into pieces that had structure but were still soft and elegant. To modernize these techniques, they digitally printed knitted fibers onto silk jerseys, cottons and wool in order to capture the idea of a knit – without the process of knitting. Just as Hicks weaves textured narratives with yarn, they tried to create a collection with story progression.
This collection uses volume, texture, soft fibers, and masculine undertones in shape and silhouette. Menswear-inspired suits and tailored evening pieces balance it out. It was important to stay true to the inspiration while remaining mindful of their loyal customer and her love of femininity, and they are introducing her to a hint of tailored, Bowie-inspired androgyny.”
