Lara Quint celebrates Hannibal Lecter
Just two years old, the Lara Quint brand is still in its very early stages. However, to date, Lara has been able to voice her design aims easily by creating women's clothing that can only be described as "effortless chic".
years old, the Lara Quint brand is still in its very early stages. However, to date, Lara has been able to voice her design aims easily by creating women's clothing that can only be described as "effortless chic". The Lara Quint woman has confidence and a great sense of humor, and enough courage to embody "cute eccentricities".
Lara Quint presents a collaborative work with renowned Norwegian artist, Ashkan Honarvar. Recently, similar art and design duos have become popular – bridging the gap between "haute art" and everyday attire. The collection includes semi-transparent shirts and gowns made from genuine silk and adorned with thin lace. As for bottoms, Lara and Ashkan have fallen for "boyfriend jeans", for a relaxed, casual appearance.
If you strive for something a little unusual, this collection from Quint has re-evaluted the concept of constraint jackets. With patchwork, prints and rich decorum, they create a non-standard, cosmopolitan look that looks impeccable with jeans, boots and sweatshirts. Sweatshirts are a focal point within this collection: they are sumptuously comfortable and beautifully printed.
For inspiration, Lara and Ashkan looked towards the personality of the infamous Hannibal Lecter: "the modern human eats himself or herself alive, without knowing how to fill the oozing vacuum of one's inner world". The garments created by Lara and Ashkan are supposed to "distract people from this existentialist suffering".
The prints unite fantastic elements, including large, decorative floral details, colorful lines, and geometrical shapes that stand out on the minimal fabrics. One of our favorite ensembles is a marvelous suit that brings straight white pants and the aforementioned constraint sweater into a relaxed weekend ensemble that could also be mistaken for pajamas.
Relaxed, beautiful and, in places, somewhat eccentric – this is a superb, early collection from an emerging designer we adore.
