Inspiration: Man Ray

Occasionally a mood lingers, a high fashion style traverses the seasons. A/W09 made heavy styling and fashion references to Modernism. Jil Sanders exaggerated forms and everyone copied Balmain shoulders. YSL ads featuring Christy Turlington (as shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin) were austere monochrome and angular.

Again, this season, Acne’s Float dress revisits the techniques that Man Ray employed to manipulate the light falling onto the body to bend and morph the body’s otherwise familiar forms. What more seductive way to dress than to exaggerate the finest features of a woman’s figure?
