Sally LaPointe debuts the Fall 2015 Sally LaPointe Collection with Unexpected Silhouettes
This season, Sally LaPointe was taken by Pina Bausch, a performer and choreographer of modern dance from Germany. She had the ability to both shock and inspire her audience with her work, it was an assault on all expectations. Her pieces being both strange and beautiful were never about alienating the audience, it was always about bringing them closer. Raw, honest, and a bit crude, Sally LaPointe wanted to emulate this idea and draw from these emotions for the FW15 collection.
Direct inspiration went into the garments by using rich textured fabrications that where inspired by the idea of movement and then cut into unexpected silhouettes. Over-sized double faced wool cocoon coats, mahogany and silver mink blocked knits, cream herringbone stitched leather skirts, and embroidered fringe wool dresses stand out as highlights of the collection. Also offering a variety of staple fabrics such as wash dyed silks, light weight wools, and matte jerseys strike a balance between classic and new.
Sally LaPointe’s powerfully feminine collections are known for linear silhouettes and precise tailoring, bringing a fresh point of view to women’s fashion. LaPointe was recently named one of the Fashion Group International’s rising stars and is for her distinctive sensibility to convey a bold sense of confidence and a quiet allure.
Designed and produced in New York City, Sally LaPointe is a designer collection offering intricately customized fabrics and prints in precise constructions and minimal color palettes, giving the wearer a sense of ease in the garments. The Sally LaPointe woman is a sophisticate with dark inclinations.
