In only her second collection to be shown at London’s Fashion Week, young visionary Louise Goldin showed just how far one could go with the color black, knitwear, and leather. Known for knits that are a far cry from the sweaters your grandma used to knit you for Christmas, Goldin presented a futuristic collection all in black last week.
Goldin proved once again the level of technical accomplishment that made her earlier collections famous. Knits, leathers, and clear space were used in this meticulously crafted, futuristic collection inspired by abstract expressionist painter Vasily Kandinsky.
Describing her style as “innovative, futuristic, and luxurious,” Goldin manages to create knits in intricate patterns that at once look like something from the future and something that could come from a vintage Missoni collection. This wasn’t terribly easy to tell because of Goldin’s decision to make this collection all in black, but form-fitting, avant garde pieces fusing leather and knits further cemented Goldin’s reputation as a young fashion visionary to watch.
