Dion Lee: architectural graces

Dion Lee is slowly but surely building himself a solid name in the fashion industry. The Australian designer, known for the strength and sense of innovation he injects into his collection ever so effortlessly, took things a step further with the autumn / winter 2013 presentation, for which he borrowed inspiration from the imposing Sydney Opera House. The geometry of his silhouettes were further touched by an architectural quality, gently enriching the allure of his clothes.

This season, Lee was all about experimenting with construction, cutting solid shapes, echoing the wind effect on his garments and creating three-dimensional prints to draw more attention to the unexpected silhouettes. The designer’s play on texture and imaginative prints, a brilliant cyclone one touched everything in between sleek skirts, fit dresses and vivid ensembles, felt intriguing and refreshing. The plait pieces or the neoprene and leather skirts, together with the oceanic influence reflected in the visual proposal for the season, assured another collection women will dream about wearing all throughout the upcoming season.
