CLAES IVERSEN SS2014: rhythms from a torrential summer shower
Iversen’s Charleston parade was a constant exposure of tension between highly refined prêt-a-porter and hints of couture (the last look, one of those tailor made pieces at his atelier – only by appointment darling). Irregularly cut yet rigorously elegant, Iversen’s vision for what women will wear in spring-summer 2014 is a combination of transparent and fluid fabrics. Collarless blazers were sensual, especially when combined with cigarette pants. Tiny wastes disappeared when beaded fringes (glass, plastic or wool) danced spraying immorality and provocation along the runway. Even more stunning, when bugle beads were used graphically as seen on a coral-green degradée tank top.
Cleverly composed, long wet hair and beautiful legs, all balancing next to the sound of falling vertical beads delivering an elongated ultra feminine figure. A fresh homage for Iversen’s rejuvenated women, who left behind commercial glamour while betting for the luxury of those aware ones.
