Editor Obsession: Designer Deconstruction From Limi Feu
A waistcoat stripped to its essentials anchors an innovative look for Spring 2013.
I love this look: a deconstructed waistcoat that is essentially reduced to lapels, taking on the appearance of arrows. The piece is paired with a white button-up shirt with an unusual top-heavy silhouette, a high-waisted black pencil skirt with sexy (not vulgar) cut-outs, and sharp combat boots.
In fact, I love designer Limi Feu’s entire Spring 2013 collection, which she presented in her Paris showroom September 26. Each piece is rugged and structured. The collection is strong and fierce, while also appearing soft and worn. With the exception of a few red accessories, the pieces are all neutral in colour, mostly black and white.
Feu, daughter of designer Yohji Yamamoto, creates designs that are always delicately balanced. This latest collection is no different—reminiscent of the 1990s, with an exaggerated take on silhouettes and materials, while adding a new elegance.
Watch for more Limi Feu in our Issue Four 2012 fashion feature, making its debut in December.
