SS15 Alexander Lewis - Shiny materials, color blocking and awesome boots

The two things that come immediately to mind when looking at the SS15 collection by Alexander Lewis are "color blocking" and "shiny!". Most of the looks feature color blocking (that is, the building block like use of different colors, I always think of Mondrian here) in one way or the other. Albeit with many colors being muted or almost fall like. And the majority of the materials used in this collection have a shiny brocade or satin finish. Then you look a bit closer and realize that he is also doing texture blocking.





And of course there are the shoes, a glorious mix of heeled boot and gladiator sandal of sorts.

Le due cose che si notano subito guardando la collezione primavera/estate 2015 di Alexander Lewis, sono i "blocchi di colore" e la "lucentezza". La maggior parte dei look hanno blocchi di colore, anche se alcuni di questi colori sono quasi più autunnali che non primaverili ed inoltre, per la maggior parte dei capi, ha usato i materiali lucidi, come il satin. Quando poi guardi un po' più da vicino, realizzi che ha usato anche i "blocchi di materiali"

Naturalmente, non posso non menzionare le scarpe, un misto tra stivali col tacco e una sorta di sandali da gladiatore.

Zwei Dinge fallen einem sofort auf, wenn man sich die Fruehling / Sommer 2015 Kollektion von Alexander Lewis ansieht, zum einen das sogenannte "color blocking" was benutzt wird wenn das Outfit aus Farbkloetzen besteht (ich muss dabei in erster Linie an Mondrian denken) und dann "glaenzend". Die meisten Looks der Kollektion haben eben diese Farbbausteine, auch wenn die Farben mir zum Teil eher herbstlich vorkommen. Ausserdem wurden fuer die meisten Kleidungsstuecke glaenzende Stoffe benutzt, die an Satin oder Brokat erinnern. Wenn man dann noch etwas genauer hinschaut, sieht man, dass er auch "Material blocking" betreibt.

Und wie koennte ich nicht diese Schuhe erwaehnen, dieser Mix aus hochhakigen Stiefeln und einer Art Gladiatorsandale?
