A rather convoluted and particularly esoteric narrative about a 70's Housewife who raises Show Dogs was neither helpful or exactly a hindrance to the Resort 2016 collection displayed by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim for their label Opening Ceremony. It was in fact, rather an unnecessary distraction and would have been best to keep under wraps and for the viewer and buyer, to dismiss in it's entirety. And now, in doing such, On to the Clothes.
Lim and Leon provided a Fine bevy of interesting and well-designed pieces with a modernistic approach that recalled Courrèges and Cardin, just not as space age-y. From the Black Shearling and Leather jacket that was the first look in the collection to the Futurist Black Zip jacket and Apple Green skirt Combo that was probably the strongest look in the entire lineup. A Black Tunic with wavy ruffles down the sides of the sleeves also bears mention.
Lim and Leon created a Forward thinking and easily wearable collection, that despite it's rather florid backstory, succeeded on it's own merits as just pure fashion. Who needs a story when it comes to looking good?
