Two tone deconstructed asymmetrical dress with hook and eye closure down the front and back. Shiny metallic purple and orange silk fabric. Gold chainmail dangles around leg for added interest. Hook and eye closure can be hooked multiple ways but looks best slightly off center.
Always one to take something familiar out of context, designer Victor Barragán surely succeeds with this piece and his entire SS17 collection which combines unexpected details like chainmail and sparkly luxe fabrics with traditional military inspired details (i.e. cargo pockets) - juxtaposing glam with utility, in a genderless utopia. With a coy wink to society and the spectacle, Barragán IS the tone for the next wave of the new wave - this we are certain of. Time to adjust your eyes.
Fabric: 100% Silk
Color: Metallic Purple & Orange
Made in Mexico
About the Designer:
BARRAGAN was started in New York City in 2014 as an experiment in fashion trends, gender identity, and media consumption. The brand offers an alternative to mainstream fashion by reinterpreting basics in counter-intuitive, even surreal, ways. The brand not only produces fashion pieces but proposes a new lifestyle by incorporating art direction, styling, photography and media to convey a familiar yet alternate reality. In its clothing, BARRAGAN juxtaposes classic womens and menswear silhouettes, cut and pasted in new ways to create mis-matched yet congruent pieces. Basic staples such as the t-shirt and blue jean are re-imagined as skirts, halter tops, dress pants, work shirts, etc. Both women and menswear pieces are reworked to both sexes creating a uniquely gendered, yet genderless collection of clothing.
