Sydney-based designer Dion Lee debuted his Fall Winter 2016 collection earlier this weekend at New York Fashion Week. Taking place inside Milk Studios, the collection, sculptural as ever, took cues from German artist Otto Piene, the founder of the Zero art movement. Feminine suiting was detailed by cut outs and metal hoops and closures giving that signature Dion Lee edge to each look within the palette of crisp white, maroon, deep blue, muddy army green, and metallic knit.
References to Piene could be seen in Lee’s use of small cut outs on two blue wool coats (one fur collard, and the other with gathered hoops at the front) that looked as though the were back lit. This motif was continued onto skirts and dresses as well near the end of the show.
Stand out looks in the collection included glittered stripped skirt mixed with sheer panels, layered with a bomber jacket, a short but simple red wrap dress, as well as a knitted glitter party dress with furry clutch.
