Clarissa Labin launches debut collection for Autumn/Winter 2010

The debut collection from Clarissa Labin combines three-dimensional surfaces with neo-psychedelic influences. Body-con silhouettes are worn with oversized and layered pieces to achieve a modern look and an updated way of wearing knitwear. Characteristic nature inspired patterns and organic shapes are transformed into relief surfaces, intarsia knits and all-over prints in vibrant colours, combined with golden embellishment. The shiny, smooth jersey and leather pieces in combination with strongly textured three dimensional knits create a contrast of materials and surfaces. The colour palette contains warm greys, nudes and curry, combined with lime, lavender, dark purple and gold accents. Clarissa Labin Autumn/Winter 2010 is available at Glass Work Studios, Nina&Lola and Rous Island in the UK.
