Ones to watch: Claudia Ligari

A few days ago I visited Blow to check out the newest collection of Italian born designer Claudia Ligari and I was very pleased with what I found. Simple, sheer, lightweight crepes and hammered silks mixed with leather and pvc are exactly the materials I’m craving now, plus the color palette “a triumph of darkness with nude accents” ensure a look that is as minimal as it is resolutely individual. 

Her SS11 collection refuses to conform and presents pieces that are boldly exposing unexpected areas of flesh. Garments, seemingly, transforming when viewed from different angles.  Everything very simple and yet very twisted. From the pleated sheer trousers to all the skeletal cage items there are quite a few pieces that I have found myself obsessing about. Don’t you agree?

Which is your favourite piece from this collection?
