FIRE + ICE
New York: A Robert Frost poem about the end of the world (perhaps the recent end of the Mayan calendar got her thinking about the subject) inspired Wayne Lee’s Pre-Fall collection. “Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice,” Frost wrote. The ice element opened the offering, with angular white pieces in boxy shapes. A shell and a short skirt were made from laser-cut leather, giving them textural interest. Next, Lee brought on the fire. She debuted a digital print of a solar flare, which added a dark, dramatic element. A series of all-black looks closed the collection, possibly representing the void left behind after the end of the world. Here Lee included some of the offering’s most luxurious pieces. There were two crocodile vests, one featuring an attached cape, a pair of leather walking shorts, and a slim tuxedo pant. Overall, the items in the collection were clean and uncomplicated, with luxe materials and the digital print giving them their appeal.–Joanna Manganaro
