New York based contemporary fashion label S’MM presents its Fall/Winter ’18 Collection titled “Rococo In Materiality”. The collection is inspired by the Rococo movement; 18th century European style or Late Baroque, revealing theatricality in general mood, and the use of indulgent details and dense ornaments, to integrate with S’MM’s materiality perspective.
The collection, only rendered in black and white in various textiles, is iterated in stretch blended wool, tinsel knit, cotton, neoprene, paper, and vinyl that accentuated the Rococo ornamented style by costume self, instead of using ornamenting details and accessories. The Mélange of contrasting textures and black and white colors shows minimalistic vision of S’MM.
Silhouettes are oversized and rounded with ruffle details, denote the Rococo style and emphasized theatrical feeling. Oversized puff sleeves neoprene dress and top, and ruffles dress that appeared the way of integrating between the Rococo movement and materiality. Straight pants with tinsel knit top and hoodie sweatshirt with plasticky skirt implies new vision of ornamenting and showed modern minimal Rococo style.
