From the Runway. Dion Lee Pre-Fall 2016

With the minimal lines, mostly muted color palette, and androgynous undertones that held Dion Lee’s latest collection together, some may think that the designer traded in his usual dramatic flair for a much more commercial approach this season.

However, the Australian designer may have replaced his signature cutouts with sheer slits to accentuate the body, and also simplified his exaggerated silhouettes, but he still maintained his deep appreciation for perforation and impeccable tailoring. Lee’s restraint when designing this collection shows maturity, instead of mere submission to the masses, and that he is able to evolve with the ever-changing landscape in the fashion industry while still maintaining the core aesthetic behind his label.
