Classy: A faux leather dirndl dress with a fine knit neck trompe and bodice.
Local brand Eclipse paves a new path with modern classics.
KNOWN for their sleek and slinky outfits, Eclipse went for a different look in the Fall/Winter 2014 collection.
This season, it features leatherette, baseball-inspired zip-up jackets worn over turtle neck sweater tops, A-line panel skirts, throw over coats with soft ribbed knits and faux leather cropped pants.
Classic neutrals with begonia as a highlight formed the main colour palette while fabrics such as double face wool, hammered and bio-washed crepes, unwashed denim, cool wool knitwear, satin backed silk and silk gazar are used throughout.
Prints abound in this collection with photo prints of oversized graphic pearls and matt sequins playing a starring role. Inspiration was derived from the constructivist art works of Anton-Stantowski.
For the evening, one will find pieces that have been hand appliqued with manicured bead pieces which provide a great textural contrast to otherwise simple, yet feminine silhouettes.
