Runway Rundown: Fyodor Golan Liberates the Post-It [LFW]
No longer just an accessory for obsessive organizers, the ever-useful Post-It Note has made it onto the fall-winter runway of Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman’s eponymous label FYODOR GOLAN. Reinvigorating the Post-It Note with moveable printed and embossed leather, this design duo went beyond simply liberating a basic office staple, to transforming it into one of fashion’s latest easy DIY looks – just slap a patchy mosaic of this week’s grocery list onto your coat and you’ll be good to go.
But FYODOR GOLAN’s show this weekend wasn’t only about reinventing office supplies; there were several key looks intended to empower women to stand up for themselves – “against all odds and at the same time being overly cute,” said the show notes. Taking cues from “The Powerpuff Girls,” this cartoon-inspired lineup of sprayed color prints (based on the large-scale works of artist Katharina Grosse) and graphic shapes (that softly contrasted camouflage, leopard and checked prints) was all about the freedom of expression and being cute yet powerful (much like the Powerpuff Girls themselves) – a subtle yet hypnotic reminder of the Women’s March last month.
