ABOUT CLARISSA LABIN
AUTUMN/WINTER 2010/11 NEO NATURE
The 1st Clarissa Labin collection embraces the beauty of integral structures in nature by combining three dimensional surfaces with neo-psychedelic influences. The clash of nature and New Wave is translated into modern garments with attitude and some updated 80´s references. Sexy body-con silhouettes are worn with oversized and layered pieces to achieve a strong, modern look and an updated way of wearing knitwear. Characteristic nature inspired patterns and organic shapes are transformed into relief surfaces, intarsia knits and allover prints in vibrant colours, combined with golden embellishment. The shiny, smooth jersey and leather pieces in combination with strongly textured three dimensional knits create an
interesting contrast of materials and surfaces. While the colour palette is expressive and fresh for an
autumn/winter season, it is still sophisticated. Warm greys, nudes and curry are combined with lime, lavender, dark purple and gold accents for the distinct Clarissa Labin feeling. The Clarissa Labin philosophy is based on the concept of a unique and fashionable statement for the daring individual who loves colour.
Focusing mainly on quality knitwear and jersey with highlights in leather, Clarissa Labin experiments with texture and surfaces for a unique and edgy, yet wearable style. The soft fabrics enhance the body within, without restricting the wearer which is essential for the modern woman who wants to look chic at all
times of the day. Sophisticated and expressive colour combinations are present in artistic prints and on the beautifully structured knitwear, emphasizing the inspiration of each season and enhancing the bold yet feminine style of the brand.
