RAFW DAY TWO - Carl Kapp Tuesday 3rd May 5.30pm


Tuesday 3rd May 2011 at 5.30pm

Spring Summer 2011/12 - Falling Water

Making a stunning debut at RAFW, master draper and fine tailor Carl Kapp cut silhouettes with enviably elegant restraint. Taking inspiration from the ballet shoe and the way it delicately ties around the leg, fluid silks in lustrous earth tones swathe the form with a relaxed Grecian simplicity. Sunset and desert shades set fire to fleeting silhouettes that transformed with the body's slightest movement, creating different shapes with settled drapes and folds. Dresses clinged to neck and flowed to the floor, twisting at strategic points with knot work and subtle ribboning that ties etherial slips of silk to a long, lean body with considered versatility. Like birds of paradise in full courtship display, gowns of textured silks in a saturated palette of saffrons, berries and deep rose carve striking figures in an intensely glamourous modern landscape.
