Designer: dion leeinspiration: second show of the day at the shed museum, but this time on four floors, along the escalators. the australian designer, who returned to new york after presenting in milan, continues his exploration of clothes, playing with the idea of mixing genres and new sensuality.collection: the work on corsets and bandages, already started with the designer, continues for this new season, revealing in a fishnet way, or with crochet and chains. dion lee also explores cut-outs at the hips, creating a new look on the top of trousers or on long dresses. the tie-dye, borrowing from a japanese technique, is made in a sustainable way. it’s about jewellery, especially chains which complement and accessorise some pieces.to note: the two-part “horse riding” boots that fit together + the makeup with spikes and studs added to the face.interview with dion lee:i thought it was just really interesting to use the space in this way that kind of felt like a transitional space so kind of like having the audience over several floors and moving between the floors felt like a really nice juxtaposition for the collection itself.i suppose i see it more about the construction details of the garment and what areas i’m trying to highlight. within this collection it was really about the shoulders and the hip i suppose, the hip bones, so for me is was really about sculpting those areas and drawing your focus to highlight certain areas of the body.i was really inspired by a chain i had and i tried to recreate the structure of that. i really wanted to use that in a structural way to hold the clothes together, to use it in the knitwear to create shapes. a lot of the shapes really do work across both men’s and women’s and as within the show you would see the same trouser on both a male model and a female model so i think that’s interesting for me how the context changes between the genders. music from the show (to use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information)
