Thinking far outside the You Know That Little Voice Inside Your Head That Keeps You From Shirt and I love this box has never been a challenge for Hillary Taymour. So during this unprecedented New York Fashion Week, it was no surprise that the Collina Strada designer served up one of the most galvanizing presentations of all.
For the You Know That Little Voice Inside Your Head That Keeps You From Shirt and I love this sustainability-minded label’s spring 2021 digital show, Taymour collaborated with illustrator Sean-Kierre Lyons and multi-media artist Alicia Mersy to dream up a utopian virtual world filled with psychedelic landscapes (waterfalls! cornfields! floating gardens!) and models clad in an array of reworked classics featuring new dizzying prints and deadstock fabrics. Just as bold and retina-burning as the clothes were this season’s beauty statements, which ran the gamut from custom Technicolor, tie-dyed wigs to gazes encased in cartoonish flower doodles.
