Beautiful, gorgeous, whauw and want to have it were the words which I had in mind while seeing the FW 12/13 collection from Sage and Ivy yesterday afternoon. This show was not organized at the Westergas location like all the other shows, the Hunters had to rush through the city te be on time for this show. But the rush was more than worth it. The show was organized, in the atelier from Anouk Beerents. The area, the antique mirrors and the setting of the runway and not to mention the classic but dramatic music suited so well with the collection. Alexia van Engelen digressed for the collection named ‘Pelgrimage’ to the murky depths from the female orphans. The Pelgrimage started in Scotland and ended in Japan, this journey was processed in the collection. A Scottish tartan, a Japanese landscape printed on a silk dress, fairytale landscapes, rich and precious materials unlike materials like black latex, tulle and faux fur. These particular combinations of materials and fabrics created the ultimate feminine feeling in a magical way but at the same time a dramatic and powerfull feeling. This feeling was not only created by the materials but also because of the different designs and colors. Long dresses, tightly-fitting dresses, blouses, fitted jackets and mysterious long coats in black, night blue and pine green. The long crochet dress, the black and blue transparant dress and the silver suit were the Hunters favorites.
