Drop everything--from puff sleeves to blouses to dresses, thus the dominating detail of ARAKS Autumn 2007 collection. With subtle glimpses into girlishness--bow and pleat details—Araks’ Yeramyan creates the ultimate in femininity.
Known for both her attention to tactility and muliebrity, her collection, comprised of cotton, chiffon, silk organza, velvet, silk, would, upon wearing, ensue delicacy. In collaboration with fabric choice, the soft details (lantern sleeves, added fullness in sleeves, bodices, and skirts, perhaps inspired by this mommy-to-be); distinct palette--Slate, Shale, Night, Navy, Coal, Praline, Gooseberry, Burgundy, Ivy, Pine and Parchment--mimicking that of Édouard Manet’s in Luncheon On the Grass; and slow, melodic music completed Yeramyan’s perception of youthful, feminine garments for “grown-ups.”
Even the models’ hair reflected that of a younger generation--long, banged, and messy; as if they had just come in from an outdoor tea party and pranced down the runway. The embodiment of childlike qualities and extreme comfort, Yeramyan’s collection is sure to appeal to the young at heart.
