KATYA LEONOVICH SPRING/SUMMER 2015

BRINGING FASHION INTO THE FUTURE

 Katya LeonovichYou can’t walk into a tech-type store without seeing 3-D printer. You think, “Cool. But what would I do with it?” Katya Leonovich has found the answer. The designer, who seems never to stop creating, innovating, trying to figure out what fashion will look like in the future, used 3-D printing to create textiles and embellishments for her Spring/Summer 2015 line. And it was pretty amazing.

The crowds crammed Pier 59 to see her mix of hard and soft. More common textiles mixed with the hard, harsh printed materials. She made her statement with the very first piece, a laser-cut black leather dress with 3-D around the neckline was beautiful and remarkably soft. A blue mesh top matched with mesh shorts and a 3-D design was a remarkable technological feat.

Her choice of fabrics made the collection even more interesting: cream silks, sheer, gauzy cottons and leather. Swimsuits, too, took on a futuristic bent, especially a grey one piece with a series of cutouts, and another sexy lilac one-piece.

It can look gimmicky, almost comical. But not in the hands of Katya Leonovich. This is fashion for the future, but ready to wear today.
