I’ve been following Katya Leonovich for several seasons now and I like each new collection more and more. I thought the futuristic après-ski Fall 2014 collection was spectacular, but Spring 2015 is my favorite one yet.
The highlight of this collection is the 3D printed embellishments worked into most of the looks. Before the show, I had the opportunity to speak to Katya backstage, where she told me that the 3D printed pieces are completely washable. She also revealed that her personal favorite part of this collection is the custom high-tech fabrics. Cotton, she felt, would not have been a good choice with the 3D printing.
My favorite look is the pink silk dress with white kimono-sleeve jacket– there’s 3D printed detail on the sleeves that totally reminds me of sand dunes. I asked about the beachy, seaside feel in some of the looks and Katya agreed that it was a different interpretation of nature. I would actually describe the whole collection as something like futuristic beachwear. In Katya’s words, however, it’s “a combination of nature and the future and imagination!”.
I wasn’t in a good spot to get head-to-toe looks, so browse Getty for full-length photos of the collection.
