Summary: We were awe-struck by the Angel Sanchez Fall 2008 Show. This dreamy collection was inspired by his trip to Japan. He was moved by the architecture of Tadao Ando, who’s space at the ChiChu Museum is designed with angular elements framing impressionistic flowers. This collection captured the same oppositional style of structure vs. free form. Angel’s love for 1950’s Balenciaga and retro fashions were apparent in this collection where the classic and glamorous shapes are restructured into a contemporary masterpiece. The details in this collection are breathtaking, the fabrics and fit is impeccable. The look was Jackie Kennedy meets James Bond. Sophisticated Barbie dolls walked the runway.
Color Palette: black, white, silver, gold, olive, cappuccino, camel and maroon.
Textures & Details: Rich silk and duchess satin, mink, fox, cashmere, and pony skin, floral appliques, metallic brocades, floral tulle embroidery.
Key Looks: A black four-ply cashmere one-shoulder cocktail dress, perfectly fitted with fox fur; a gold silk metallic jacquard short sleeve top with floral applique, and cigarette pants; brown and white pony hair with striping on a skirt and cocktail dress, another example of an oppositional play on natural contrasted with modern architectural elements.
