All-Day. Dion Lee SS19

Who: Dion Lee

Where: From Australia to New York

What: Dion Lee’s netting is the designer’s signature and also a frequent evening-wear choice. But the label is more than that: it’s well-known for strong emphasis on construction, tailoring and experimentation. The designer creates a contemporary wardrobe, that’s blurring the boundaries between ‘feminine’ and ‘minimal’.

SS19: The spring-summer 2019 collection from Lee was a like a dissection of an all-day wardrobe. Distorted trench coats and pastel pink tailoring, which were a take on office-, work-, business-wear gradually switched to evening dresses with lace inserts, sensual cut-outs and playful sheerness. The few pieces in shiny blue and bold orange brought energy to the line-up, creating a smooth transition from the ‘day’ to the ‘night’. There were the easily approachable pieces, like biker shorts and pinstripe suiting ensembles. But for the more daring ones, there are the jacket-dress hybrids with zippers that had a beautiful, fluid-like quality (in a way reminding of Azzedine Alaïa’s mastership). What else felt like an absolute highlight? Of course Dion’s netting. This season it was reimagined thinner and lighter on two dresses and was made of 3-D printed latex. The effect? One word: stunning.

What the Water Gave Me. Dion Lee SS15

Dion Lee. Dion Lee. Dion Lee. Best-seller of European on-line stores. Sexy cuts. Bright colours. Party attitude. The SS15 was a bit different than usually at Lee- the collection was great because it was lazy. It had a spirit of endless summer in Australia, with no problems and worries. Beautiful colours of blue mixed with masculine shirts and trousers were a perfect match! Everything here is a want and must-have. Love, love and one more time, love!
