Carmen Marc Valvo Spring 2014
A cultural collision of traditional tribal patterns in a monochromatic palette create the illusion of computer graphics.
Glass beads and pewter paillettes further contrast the textual nuances of double face crepe when paired with high tech fabrication.
Transparency continues in a sporty vein. Scuba stripes are used to infuse more than just a glint of skin, bearing backs and legs.
Athletic mesh and black leather are used in conjunction with elaborate embroideries to create a more hard-edged sophistication.
Elongated torsos abound throughout the collection allowing the freedom to play with proportions as well as textures.
