It’s a morphine generation, and if you’re not hip to it you can forget about being part of the club… because they’ve been hopeless romantics since 1979. Edgy music, edgy models, and strong mix and match pieces that come together to create a cohesive line for both men and women.
Although much of the line has a somewhat alternative appeal, the ensembles are quite sophisticated with clean cuts and precise detailing. Stylist Brigitte Segura noted that the Morphine girl “looks hip with an understated yet edgy elegance.” As it is often a struggle to find just the right mix of fabrics to promote a proper sensibility, the designer made use of some beautiful materials that were paired smartly to reinforce the look without masking the very cleverly developed design elements. Fabrics included cashmere, silk chiffon, virgin wool knits, a herringbone, and coated linen.
The color palette was as expected, mostly black, with hints of charcoal, pewter, crisp white, and a honey toned hue that provided a surge of authority, but as a liaison between the tones rather than a stand alone contrast color. Morphine Generation’s taste is becoming more refined, but not to worry kids, that old dingy L.A. basement feel that started it all will forever remain.
