In the two years I’ve known Phoenix, I’ve loved seeing his inspirations and visions evolve, and his incredible craftsmanship become more and more present with each collection. Needless to say, I was excited to see what he had been working on for his show tonight – and Phoenix definitely didn’t disappoint. The balance between other-worldly severity and attention to curvature of a woman’s body was such a perfect contrast to the black and white focus, and fluid sheers against sharper silhouettes.
The setting was hauntingly beautiful t00 – the collection deserved nothing less than the high ceilings and ambiance of Paddington Uniting Church. “Lady Gaga performed here,” he said. How fitting – she loves his work.
What do you guys think?
It’s not often that you see a collection that makes every one of the models look exquisitely statuesque. This one would have the same effect on every woman out there.
