Edeline Lee — Fall/Winter 2018
Edeline Lee’s portrayal of feminine nature is documented with structural and drapery excellence in her Fall/Winter ’18 presentation, held at the BFC Showspace. This season, the talented young designer finds the grounding of her collection in female empowerment, as her subject searches the dark, secret garden within herself. The collection subtly reflects upon Edgar Allan Poe’s The Forest Reverie, which had further been incorporated into the transformed stage of fake grass and sparse, delicate trees.
Rich hues celebrating autumnal beauty are supported by 3-dimensional embellishments of folds, bows and distorted ruffles that are incorporated into the freefalling drapery. Jewell toned floral Jacquard and pure virgin wool Boucle further express the season’s character.
The tranquil landscape of Lee’s display brings Eve forward in the symbolic collection. The subjects were brought to focus from each angle of the stage, swaying freely or gazing into the distance and occasionally rotating positions before us. The series of designs embody a faint balance of both tailored and fluid structures, each illustrating the classically feminine silhouettes that are translated throughout each season.
