TO THE MOON AND BACK
New York: Louis Vuitton alumnus Risto Bimbiloski’s relatively new eponymous line seems to be hitting its stride this season. Bimbiloski reintroduced the digital prints that he first showed for S/S 10, beginning with images of the surface of the moon. The haunting landscape appeared in the show’s opening look, a tailored trench, but worked best for chiffon blouses and floor-sweeping dresses. The ethereal feeling continued with a standout transparent maxi skirt, grounded by a bleached denim jacket. The mint green tone that has been spotted at several New York shows so far appeared on ultra-lightweight jackets and summer sweaters with engineered strips of openwork. As Risto is best known for his knits, it was unsurprising that they were the highlight of the collection; a beige dolman sleeved sweater with a metallic black outline was elegant in its simplicity. Bimbiloski returned to the digital prints for the show’s final looks, but this time brought them back to Earth with images of city lights and a voyeuristic look into the windows of a high-rise building. This promising young label’s intriguing mix of high-tech prints and earthy knits makes it one to watch.
