Ever Wonder What Sight Unseen Would Look Like As a Fashion Collection?
As a design magazine, our relationship to fashion can be somewhat tenuous. We tend to cover accessories and jewelry more often than clothes, and while we love to scroll through the runway shows each season, it’s mostly to identify which trends have the capacity to translate to interiors (this season’s contenders include patchwork, sheers, and navy). And, of course, once in a while we’ll spot a head-to-toe look that truly speaks to us, which we’ll faithfully document on Pinterest.
But never before have we felt anything near the kinship and immediate obsession both of us felt when we first saw Sies Marjan‘s FW18 collection, which launched last week at New York’s long-empty Penn Plaza. Under lights that changed from pink to blue to deep purple, the label’s Dutch-born designer Sander Lak sent out everything from hyperpigmented ombre silks to iridescent trousers (which Monica swears she’ll be wearing in Milan), all in the most pitch-perfect palette we’ve ever seen. Of the broken-up looks, the designer says: “I’m sensitive to color. I can get nauseous if I see something that doesn’t feel right, and I began noticing that if I looked at color as a solid block, I couldn’t do it.” The designer’s chromatic deficiencies are majorly our gain, though; scroll through to see our favorite looks, then head over to Vogue for the full collection.
