White Trumpet‘s spring 09 collection plays to the beat of my drum. Like Sofie Hulme’s sequin madness, I’m reminded once again of my old dancing costumes. This designer couple comes from a music and architecture background and I think it really shows in their construction. Like a modern day flapper, dresses are adorned with long hanging fringe. I can almost hear the music play from the movement of these swishing strings. The duo also produce over-sized riveted tops in which the metal holes actually create the design. Their skirts are constructed with folded fabric panels, remniscient of the geometric structure behind the Tate Modern. The color palette of yellow, gray, black and white feels muted, as if to offset the structured ornamentation of each piece. I’m really in love with it all.
