Australian fashion designer Dion Lee’s AW21 collection showcases contrasting elements seamlessly colliding and melded to create a distinctive world that feels refreshingly new. The brand defines the AW21 collection as as “an exploration of strength and control, through the language of horses and breathing”. Renowned for its experimental construction corresponding with traditional tailoring. The Sydney based brand shines light on accentuating and empowering the female form, inspired by architectural silhouettes.
Lee has elaborated on his architectural and body conscious subversions, cutting prepster V-neck knits into harnesses, placing equestrian-inspired bits into a belt, and slicing into knit dresses and tops like a sensual surgeon. One of his more ingenious ideas this season is a tweak of the Y-front underpants that inspired layered ribbed cashmere bodysuits worn by male and female models. Very sexy and very singular. - Vogue
Traditional saddlery techniques are deconstructed throughout, as harnessing leathers wrap and wind to become sculpting bralettes, cinching ankle cuffs, choker details and a structured skirt. Ribbed drape knits fall from cut-outs inspired by lung formations are reflected in more of a pure and organic way. - Hunger
