Lola Haze introduces its Spring/Summer 2010 collection. This collection, Confections, is the brand’s fourth. “The delight of taking the first bite of cotton candy—I want to capture that moment of sweetness and light in this collection,” says designer Laura Mehlinger. “There’s such simplicity in our love—or at least my love—of candy.”
With confections as a starting point, Mehlinger created a collection that explores desire and consumption in its many forms, finding a locus where desire to consume overlaps with desire for a woman to present herself as beautiful—to be consumed.
Confections focuses on silhouettes like camis, panties, and chemises in silk and mesh, including updates to favorite past looks as well as a new silhouette, the maxi chemise. Color and fabric mixing are a hallmark of the collection, with the Swirl group embracing a candy-cane-like twist of color-blocking that swirls up the body.
Fabrics include combinations of silk charmeuse, chiffon, and mesh, which, together, create a play of opacity mixed with transparency. The looks are both wearable and comfortable to a modern woman, but also give moments of sensual reveal. Colors are reminiscent of fruits and sherbets: peach, crème, mint, lavender, grape.
I’m happy to see some slip-like designs in here – and I’m sure Kelly will digg it too! 😉
