New York designer Lauren Kovin’s Spring Summer 09 collection is a combination of dynamic transformations and avant-garde beauty. Equipped with a striking palette of black, white, blue, and coral, her line features eight fluid jersey pieces that can be configured multiple ways, adding a futurist approach to the garments. The collection, primarily comprised of bamboo and sheer viscose jersey, offers up details such as soft gathering, kimono sleeves, and ghostly cascade ties finished with a delicate purl edge. Puffy cording adorned with tonal, wooden beads, features on several of the garments, adding to them an architectural sensibility. With all of its dreamlike appeal, it’s undeniable that Kovin’s collection evokes the sensation of floating into a serene and spacious, sunlit room.
