Sew Not Over: Kit and Rami
“For my online collection, I just really wanted to push myself to make things I really would want to wear. It’s the ideal of the whole Kit Pistol philosophy that you can mix more nighttime-looking clothes with more casual layering pieces, so it’s really about the way that I like to dress.”
Well it’s certainly very Kit, which is as it should be. Although we wish some of these designers would embrace color a little more. We like the first look but there is something a little weird about the proportions. Don’t those “straps” look like they come down awfully low? It’s giving her a saggy titty look. We like the buttons on the sleeves but we’re not sold on the sleeves ending in little fingerless gloves. LOVE the second look. Third look, interesting but the overall effect isn’t that flattering.
“The three-look collection is about special pieces representing flattering fits and elegant details which play an essential part in a woman’s wardrobe — delicate embellishments such as pleated and ruffled necklines, sleeves, and hems, as well as decorative quilting that make each piece unique. It’s about classic pieces with a modern twist that complement a variety of women with different body types. I desire to bridge the gap between the old and the new, the mythic and the ordinary, story and storyteller. I delight to bring allegory to the arena of fashion.”
Good god, that boy likes to talk about his clothes. Not that we can blame him, since this was a VERY strong showing. Nice to see SOMEONE using color and that purple is very hot right now. The first look is absolutely flawless. Beautifully done. We love the second look but that jacket looks a bit overworked to us, which as we’ve seen this past week can be an issue with Rami. Too many design elements for such a simple silhouette. Third look: Lorenzo likes (except for the collar) and Tom vehemently DISlikes. It’s kinda pretty and feminine but – again – a bit too overworked for such a simple little babydoll dress.
