NYFW Round Up- Claudia Li and Rubin Singer

Claudia Li022_MON0004

For fall/winter 2016, Claudia Li wanted to express self-preservation: the idea of preserving oneself after an emotional and mental destruction; the collection embraces the period right after. The process of recovering and the past seemingly becoming an illusion is shown through wrapped silhouettes, origami knots, panels and layers of fabrics.
Vegan leather is introduced in tops, culottes, skirts and appliques on cotton pullovers. novelty yarns, cashmere wools and layered sheer fabrics enhance the collection. Denim continues to play an important role in knotting details, yarn sleeved jackets and bandeau tops. leather accessories are re-introduced in the fall/winter 2016 collection with clutches and multi-purpose arm bands.

 

Rubin Singer

RUBIN SINGER FW16

Rubin Singer’s fall / winter 2016 collection began with an exploration of his intentions as a designer. Staying true to his core image of architectural femininity, Singer delves into new categories, new shapes, and new fabrics for the new season. Unique in his approach to designing, Singer starts with an inspiration, such as the mathematical formulation “Homomorphism” (that any given formula ends up in the same place no matter how many times you change it), which is the hallmark for the fall / winter 2016 season, and then moves to fabrics – textures & colors – and from there the shape and pattern of his creations are revealed.

This collection, which debuts knitwear and more ready-to-wear separates, is a continuation of Singer’s spring / summer 2016 mathematical inspiration “vector.” Late 60’s and early 70’s undertones echo throughout the collection in the form of separates, day dresses, and dramatic evening gowns.  Multi directional silk chiffon dresses, glass embroidered eveningwear, and duchess satin jackets continue to show Rubin’s technical use of classic fabrics. Touches of Indian lamb, python, and velvet add to the sophistication and drama seen in a Rubin Singer collection, and geometric shapes and silhouettes convey the overall season inspiration.
