If dizzying graphics and blown out visuals are your thing, you should probably know about RICHARDS. The New York based label certainly knows how to do print, and do it damn well.
Designer Sarah Leslie Richards has seemingly perfected wild mash-ups and iconography prints, creating chaotic perfection through her crazy garment visuals.
This season Richards takes a more sophisticated edge on internet/ Tumblr inspired graphics by amalgamating sporty lux, practicality and femininity with a cyber twist in her FW14 collection.
Having watched her graphic inspirations and explorations change over the seasons from the beginning in SS13, its safe to say Richards isn’t afraid to go all out on the prints.
This seasons collection of technologically inspired designs have light bending visuals denoting orcas spinning among glistening techno-coloured oceans, whilst Internet windows are perpetually open against a backdrop of acid induced, tripped out rainbow static. Oh yeah, this girls got a vision and she ain’t afraid to throw it in your face season after season.
The paired back silhouettes rely heavily on the captivating print, achieving flattering simplicity for the female figure. The clean lines and shapes sit back and relax while the insane, almost head-ache inducing prints hypnotize us into a aesthetically fixated daze.
We definitely wanna go on a weird trip in some RICHARDS threads.
