Kahri fall/winter 2012

Apr 30 2012, 2:00 pm 0 Monica Bogliolo

The American designer KahriAnne Kerr started making clothes from an early age. Her talent is remarkable: in high school years KahriAnne learn to sew on her own and begins to produce her first pieces, unhappy with the serial and trivial mass production proposals that could be found in the shops of her city, Tripoli, Iowa. Thanks to these works she get noticed, and nominated “Most Promising Designer” for 2001-2002. After these early successes, she moved to New York, where she followed a course in fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. And here she begins her real career, with the founding of her brand “Kahri”, the sale of her collections in several boutiques in New York and the opening of a store with the collective Burrow. I had already noticed the spring/summer collection, but I must admit that the new one just presented, fall/winter 2012, has left me mildly. Soft colors, dark shades of intense blue, ocher, burgundy, brown. Light silk dresses and blouses, opposed to structured garments in heavy fabrics. But the most funny element, and that characterizes the collection, is the asymmetry: not only single sleeve tops or diagonal and irregular cuts, but also dresses that seem divided in half, one side short and casual, the other elegant and long, trousers with one cargo leg and the other wide and ruffled, skirts that are mini on one side and longuette on the other. Amazing details in a collection where nothing is left to chance.
