Doo-Ri, the former Geoffrey Beene intern was inspired by “controlled restraint” and claims it all started “with an Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin photograph of an enormous balloon inflated into a tin shack, which creates this glowing white void”. She also personifies the adage, “the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree” because it’s hard not to notice many similarities in philosophy, design, and technique, that she shares with her former boss, the legendary late designer.ility to cut and drape, a love of fluid fabrics, a fondness for cropped boleros and shrugs, a desire to make beautiful, elegant, and graceful eveningwear, and this season, a love of menswear (Geoffrey Beene was known for making creative use of menswear fabrics and in fact, he had the ability to turn humble menswear fabrics into something far more alluring.) This season, in addition to a group of wistfully beautiful tent shaped evening gowns in silk jersey or charmeuse, (often with tulle overlays or crystal embroidery), some of the standouts incorporated a plaid wool melton fabric in surprisingly feminine ways. For example, the plaid melton jacket with very full elbow length sleeves, worn over a wide legged pant….or the plaid wool shrug with face framing sculpted ‘rosettes’ juxtaposed over a floor length silk organza and jersey gown.
