DEGEN Fall/Winter 2012 "ASK TELL" Knitwear

Tongue-in-cheek-or showing snippets of- through quirky cut-outs, the repeal of the USA military policy "don't ask, don't tell" inspired a RTW collection of largely knits-crafted by "a small army of creative people,"commanded by Lindsay Degen.


The modus operand here-was the mimicking of patterns on  French WWI war ships-by modernist sculptors, painters and set designers no less...

It reminded us a but of VPL's knits---fun, inventive---with some pieces we thought-retail worthy----

The interplay of patterns and colors was very cute...and the hair and make-up (Lulu Locks and Jessica Berndt for Lime Crime)...worked well with the whole edgy vibe.
