Jonathan Simkhai's Doily Porcelain Dolls
Jonathan Simkhai makes extraordinary out of the ordinary. Last season he wowed by sending crackled-glass inspired outfits down his first MADE Fashion Week runway show, and for SS16 the collection looked like doilies made of porcelain. With a palette that consisted mainly of red, white, and blue, Simkhai’s tight dresses, loose pants, and in-between jumpsuits (all featuring various shapes of eyelets) put us right in the mood for a countryside escape. As an addendum to the rural looks were a few outfits in light tweed with frayed hems, and skintight mermaid dresses with zig-zag hems that made us think of Space Invaders. With every look as beautiful as the next, we were honestly sad when the final walk ended.
