Lela Rose Fall 2011 centers around diaphanous fabrics and filmy printed overlays in pursuit of the hazy and obscured imagery seen in the works of contemporary artist Gerhard Richter. Sculpted shoulders, strict silhouettes and scraped prints as seen in cotton canvas and obscured taffeta show visible trails of the artist’s tools. Dip dyed silk, printed feathers and blurred chiffon recall Richter’s rendering of fragile illusions while cumulative layers of veiled tulle are used to expose prior layers. Filament embroidered mohair, hand-loomed organza and burnished brocade in colors such as sapphire, smoke, deep green and copper bring a painterly palette to the collection.
