Christian Siriano for NYFW

Christian Siriano showed his fall/winter 2016 collection for NYFW on Saturday, February 13th. In discussing his inspiration, Christian states,

“My Fall/Winter 2016 collection was first inspired by artist Sheila Hicks’ “Art of the Yarn” exhibit. After researching her work and the idea of yarn design as a form of art, I became inspired by all the many different techniques of knitting and weaving in fabrications. We looked at different ways to knit, twist and manipulate fabric into pieces that had structure but were still soft and elegant. To modernize these techniques, we digitally printed knitted fibers onto silk jerseys, cottons and wool in order to capture the idea of a knit – without the process of knitting. Just as Hicks weaves textured narratives with yarn, we tried to create a collection with story progression.  This collection uses volume, texture, soft fibers, and masculine undertones in shape and silhouette.  Menswear-inspired inspired suits and tailored evening pieces balance it out.  It was important to stay true to the inspiration while remaining mindful of our loyal customer and her love of femininity, and we are introducing her to a hint of tailored, Bowie-androgyny.”

Take a look at some of our favorite looks to hit the runway from the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
