Laurence & Chico FW17 Runway Show
The Laurence & Chico FW17 collection is inspired by the whimsical dreams of air travel between the designers hometown, Vancouver, and New York City. When dozing on flights between the two cities, the designer sketched the collection, making it created on flights, and inspired by flights.
Designers sewed together oversized velvet pieces filled like a cushion. Pearls were used as embellishments on jacquards and velvets. Ruffles were added to edges of cushioned pieces, adding light and airy waves to the wearers’ movements. In designing with comfort and softness in mind, the designers wanted to capture the dreamy, euphoric and ethereal state of mind when in the air. The whimsical collection itself was a dreamy gallery display of art. Model were accessorized with oversized square wigs, custom gloves + shoes and phones cases from their collaboration with Candies.
