By SEBASTIEN LAFOREST Photography COURTESY OF LELA ROSE
Inspired by the kimono, Lela Rose took subtle elements from the traditional Japanese garb in order to create her breathtaking Spring/Summer 2015 Collection.
The Japanese impression was apparent as seen with the jackets, shawls, and wrapped bodices.
Across each and every runway look—the minimalistic ideal was very much present. The collection boasted gorgeous silk flower prints, A-line silhouettes, and lace. Rose featured triangle cutouts on a few of the dresses, which rest tastefully on the upper abdomen—providing a sense of chic sophistication.
The designer stayed true to her feminine and romantic nature throughout the collection. It’s seen not only with the garments—simple, lustrous ponytails and fresh-faced makeup pulled everything together.
The designer concluded the show with a glamorous metallic brushstroke gown that seamlessly combines the traditional and modern elements of fashion.
