[NYFW] Alon Livne F/W 2013 Collection!

It's definitely not a secret that one of my greatest joys in being a fashion seeker is discovering a new up and coming talent that is well on their way to becoming a household name worldwide joining the elite ranks of Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta, Alexander Wang, etc.  Each NYFW season I attend I am always on the look for the next fashion star that is going to take this industry by storm and after attending Alon Livne's show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week I know that he is the one.

His 2013 Fall/Winter collection was inspired by a beautifully bleak post-apocalyptic world as described in the writings of British author J.G. Ballard.  This imaginary world is inhabited by figures transformed through crystallization; once breathing, now beautifully frozen jewels imprisoned in world hung between day and night, dusk and dawn.

This beautiful collection came to life with the utilization a fluid drape that were juxtaposed with stunning beading and crystal work.  His ability to give texture to this fluidity through structured shapes that mimicked earthen layered rocks was done so delicately that it was clearly evident that his is the master of balancing old and new: modern sewing techniques paralleled by finishing methods taken from the couture world.
