“Structure will always define the pieces made by the best designers.” This observation, (made by one of my closest friends who also happens to be a top LA stylist), has stuck with me and continues to ring true each time I come upon a piece that takes my breath away.
Structure is so varied material to material, but what is consistent in outstanding work, is the form a garment makes as it rests along your body. It can be an exaggeration, or an exceptionally clean form, but there is always an intention and excellent execution to where the piece lays.
The work shown below from Alexander Wang’s 2014 resort collection so accurately depicts the simplicity, yet immensely powerful statement structure can bring to your every day or nighttime look. It’s eye catching, playful, and can easily enhance your favorite body features.
