This is only part 1 of the HYD designers launch, part 2 can be found here.
It’s been a while since we last talked about the HYD designers. Already, they have launched 2 collections–the first was last October 2011, and here’s a glimpse of what the 5 designers have created:
Last January 25, the designers have again showcased another round of ready-to-wear designs. This quarter’s collection caters to young professionals, who value work life balance. The desire is to have an ensembles that an individual can wear from day to night.
Inspired by the New York City lights, the line showcases Spring 2012’s trend on glitz and glamour with flashy pieces that consists primarily of all party dresses bedecked with glitter, sequins, and metallics. The silhouettes include fit-and-flare sleeveless mini-dresses, slim-fitting party dresses with open slit sleeves, and sleeveless dresses with a v-shaped neckline and cascading ruffles. All dresses were built around contrast materials such as crepe, and chiffon, creating a sheer feminine texture throughout the collection. Party the night away with Klart Lim’s “Hello, Sexy!” Collection!
Bailey’s second collection is inspired by the fashionable people who chill on the different beaches. La Playa de Moda, or “The Beach of Fashion” has different fabulous swimwear and cover-ups, as well as dresses one can wear while lounging at the different resorts. These dresses can be worn too outside of the beach while chilling with your friends. One would definitely be a glamorous and fabulous fashionista when wearing any of these pieces from Bailey’s La Playa de Moda collection.
The collection is called Mama Carine. Irreverently chic! Renan drew the inspiration for this collection from Carine Roitfeld, former editor-in-chief of French Vogue. That tousled hair and dark smoky-eyes, she is one of the most powerful women in the whole of “fashiondom”. She evokes power and authority. She’s unapologetically subversive with her usually sex-induced ideas. Influential, dominant and highly-significant for most designers, eternal muse of Tom Ford, and for Renan’s second collection for Hot Young Designers, she is the woman- clad in Renan’s fetish-inspired multi-buckled corset belts; zip-up miniskirts; body-hugging stretch dresses…this collection is power dressing with lots of female charm.
Are you loving what you see so far? I would continue with the other two designers, Jackie and Marc, but I’m leaving it to Shabby to continue introducing you to the 2nd Quarter collection.
