Basil Soda has just shown its AW 12-13 Collection in Paris – this was a stunning collection by the Lebanese designer who’s work and name is a regular on the Hollywood Red Carpets
This collection was dominated by Dark and Light, Femininity and Elegance- Sensuality and Strength. Inspired by metamorphoses, the collection went from dark green ,deep rustic shades of olive green and indian red through to what the designer referred to as a ‘promising white future’.
The AW 12 13 collection progresses towards three dimensional silhouettes. A blow up of cuts, fabrics, textures and prints. A ﬂoating of embroideries, feathers,
crystals, and fringes spirit overlooks the creations. High collars, shaped lines, bell-shaped gowns and puffed skirts dominate. Transparent silk organza, sheen and delicate tulle, closely woven silk gabardine, and gold stitching appliquéd over white and pale colors of silk tulle. Ankle boots are covered with fringes.
