If you have every stared at the limitless infinity of space and imagined nice and friendly creatures living out there then you definitely imagined them dressed up in the new Roksanda Ilincic spring/summer 2014 collection, demonstrated at London Fashion Week. The Serbian pioneer of imaginative fashion industry is there to amaze you with her new creative and vivid styles and colors.
The Roksanda Ilincic spring/summer 2014 collection includes some skinny dresses, classy pants, cute skirts and off-the-shoulder hot shirts all in adorable and radiant colors. The intense density of brilliant colors and ingenious shapes makes you feel dreamy and fanciful about the reality. The fashioner is obviously influenced by the traditional Brazilian concepts and Hélio Oiticica’s paintings, though the abstract prints have the touch of Dali’s inexplicable elements and geometrical lines. Especially the canary yellow gives the models the impression of pet birds, who crave to be set free.
The very first look of the sensational runway show is a bright yellow skirt and a nice Cezanne or Picasso-style shirt in gray, black and a tiny slice of yellow. The black and white oxford shoes and the two tiny black horns complete the look and make it irreplaceable for a friendly alien character in the new fantastic movie. The two-color skirt in coral and yellow worn together with a gray shirt and a black classy belt also seems to have escaped from a cartoon or a positive animated movie.
If Pippi Longstocking ever decided to change her socks she would be absolutely pleased with Roksanda’s looks and would choose the gray and yellow skirt with simple light green shirt. Another chic look from the Roksanda Ilincic spring/summer 2014 collection is the elegant coral silk shirt worn with fashionable black pants. The rainbow of beaming colors radiates freshness and originality and emphasizes the wearer’s artistic and almost wacky taste to stand out in the monotonous crowd.
The tiny black belt is the important accessory in the looks presented that balances the cubist style with some pinch of elegancy making the collection cool and inventive. Overall, the Roksanda Ilincic spring/summer 2014 collection was like a Brazilian carnival – hot, colorful and fun!
