DOMINIC LOUIS Spring 2012

Eyebeam Gallery, NYC

Beginning with a performance --- the Dominic Louis for Jermaine Browne unisex brand-of performance driven dance wear---was shown properly. Moving-on humans.

We then moved ourselves onto the main event-a presentation featuring the flowing shapes, raw and finished edges of the neutral toned S/S 2012 RTW by Creative Director Louis Mairone.

At a quick glance-it looked like the continuation of an art project-but there are distinct looks here with a distinct point of view"...the idealist concept of Euphoria..." to quote the run of show. Kinda feels like a dose of Mad Max in the mix.

Hand Knit Tank, Linen Trouser

Linen, raw silk, hand knits and linen...in neutral tones...






thought these were interesting accessories-leather belts (?)-wrapped like a sandal upper.





CODA:
Right outside---
These ladies had enough-of standing on their feet at least---3 chairs for the taking---we loved their shoes but understood their misery, feet-wise.
