Edeline Lee paid loyalty to artist Georgia O’Keeffe and ventured to New Mexico for spring.
Lee’s lady is clever nonetheless frail — with an eccentric suggestion — and drives out into a dried with her portrayal easels in a backseat of her car.
Influenced by a thought of delicate courage, she pronounced she illusory O’Keeffe and wanted to constraint her dauntless spirit.
“She was sad and had only come out of a sanatorium from a shaken breakdown,” pronounced Lee. “When she arrived in New Mexico and found her place in a universe — a landscape was her landscape. She embellished it for a rest of her life, finished adult relocating there, vital there. It’s this thought of infirmity and strength and so she became this iconic figure.”
She channeled a disadvantage and strength of her lady and sent out a desirable collection filled with scrupulous dresses and separates with clever silhouettes.
Playing with her signature burble jaquard fabric, she deftly disfigured and tied knots and introduced farfetched elements onto dresses, trousers and tops. Lee referenced O’Keeffe’s florals and combined a array of 3-D botanical accents on shirting and dresses. Abstract flowers were crafted along a shoulders and sleeves of a sweatshirt, adding to a conformation and giving it a sculptural feel. This was interconnected with a midlength round skirt.
There was a pared-back white trip tip dress that came curled during a hem, while a short-sleeve character was wound and draped around a waistline. An uneven dress with a scatter hem came in a distinguished shade of blue — suggestive of a bluish gems in New Mexico.
Lee used a palette of adobe, black, blush, blue, ivory and bare — an paper to a Southwestern scenery.
