Complexgeometries Fall Winter 2011 – 2012

Complexgeometries Fall Winter 2011 - 2012
Complexgeometries held their fall winter 2011 – 2012 presentation at The Westside Gentlemen’s Club. That’s right, a strip bar. Designer Clayton Evans had colour and collaborations on the mind for the season. It’s a surprisingly colourful fall winter 2011 – 2012 collection for Complexgeometries and I’m not complaining. The textile evolution of the line into fabrics other than jersey is progressing with charmeuse, silk, mohair, suede and wool.

Collaborations came in the form of jewellery and shoes. Complexgeometries partnered with fellow Montreal designer, Mireille Boucher of Harakiri.

The towering platform boots came out of the minds of LD Tuttle and Complexgeometries. Clayton tells me they are 9 inches high. I’m simultaneously scared and salivating. It’s an extra 9 inches of height. Who the hell knows what I’ll use it for but I want it. I’d probably scare small children and some men. Do these qualify as Manrepller shoes? Ha Ha.  Thankfully there are some more reasonable short boots available in the collaboration too.  Yes, Chasse Gardee will carry the collaboration.  It’s the first question I asked. 🙂

Char Alfonzo who is a New York-based Multimedia Artist took some sublime photos of the show.  Another website called NAAG also posted some lovely photos of the collection. These pictures are so much better than nymag’s photos. (NAAG is closed)
