New York: At once youthfully edgy and sophisticatedly simple, Tim Hamilton’s modern punk looks for F/W 11 seemed to evolve naturally from the designer’s past offerings. The collections’s clean-lined outerwear, elongated top proportions, gutsy knits, and tapered pants were shown in the studio of New York artist Ross Bleckner; Bleckner also created the floral prints that the designer used this season, which added a tender, elegiac note. Aldous Huxley’s futuristic fantasies were cited as one of the designer’s inspirations and the juxtaposition of whimsical pieces with hard-edge elements seemed to reflect the author’s influence.
