Since his first collection in Spring 2011, Brood‘s Serkan Sarier has been steadily rising the ranks to become one of fashion’s most promising stars. And his Fall 2012 collection has only solidified the designer as a major player (or player-to-be) in the industry.
The show’s “moving presentation” with mini-fashion shows staged every 15-20 minutes, was set at the Lori Bookstein Fine Art gallery–fitting because the collection certainly owed a lot, in terms of aesthetic, to fine art. Particularly, the prints, which were reminiscent of abstract painting (and the galleries conceptual runway design) as were oh-so-pretty.
Sarier continued the sportswear motif of past collections in the form of drawstrings and parachute-esque peplums and puffy sleeves. The designer also developed his love of layering, showing several inventive jackets that were made to look multi-layered.
Some of our favorite looks were the pretty floral dresses and skirts, which resembled wrapped saris and were a slight–but welcome!–departure from the designer’s more utilitarian approach.
