When I think of Sally La Pointe‘s work, the first images that come to mind are sharp angles, severe cuts, and graphic silhouettes. For her FW12 collection she introduced an element of fluidity and movement that when paired with her more structured garments created a feeling of lightness. What I enjoyed the most was the usage of color and material – I could imagine the entire collection made from hard black fabrics (which would have been fabulous as well) but the decisions to replace black leather with brown, use a loose sequined fabric for a structured jacket, and include the most divine shades of autumnal cranberry elevated this collection from something strictly on trend to a line with tangible longevity.
