NOVELTY | Dion Lee ss12

Dion Lee's spring summer 2012 collection was all about bringing together conflicting elements in a composed way, for example the synthetic treatments that were used on natural fabrics. The cutouts in the structured garments seemed like the dissecting work of a surgeon and the colors (minty green and white) that are usually worn by hospital staff added even more to a clinical feeling.
It's impressive how conceptual the work of Dion Lee is. For example instead of inviting his guests with a regular piece of paper in an envelope, he prescribed them a dose of composure and the invitations came in the shape of a box of pills. (They were filled with mints in case you were wondering)
