The slim silhouettes of her designs and particularly her printed cotton shirts characterized by an Optical Art African pattern, have a retro touch to them and is reminiscent of Florida 60s mellow lifestyle. The main inspirations come from the illuminated palette and geometric decors of Miami’s Art Deco buildings: warm shades of aqua and peach, coral and lime, blue and mint, prevail throughout the collection, balanced with acid tones of green, orange and lemon reminding of Memphis Milano’s works and David Hockney ‘s paintings. LaurenceAirline’s signature of vibrant and alluring constrasting fabrics on shirts are emphasized by solid fabrics spiced up by Op Art green squares pattern graphic lines. Although a daring high waist cropped shirt invites itself in the broad proposition of shirts, the cuts remain classic and structured on slim silhouettes. LaurenceAirline’s playful mix of solid colors and bold prints enlights this predominant shirt presence. Highlighted by visually rich and strong graphic prints and patterns, origami and triangles shaped yokes subtly reference 1920 geometrical lines. Rigorous shaped yokes and patchwork panel breastplates and breast pockets form interesting textures giving movement to surfaces. These highly constructed details provide an added layer of controlled eccentricity to the collection. Daring and bold, combining different shades of plain and printed cottons, this season reveals an eclectic mixture of shapes and colors : cropped shirts, long sleeves and short sleeves as well as Cuban collar shirts. Pants and pleats shorts display sharp lines whilst exuding a certain sense of pleasant candor. Balancing tradition and modernity, this collection includes numerous pieces that may appeal to all the LaurenceAiline’s male fans who favor her thoughtful elaborated colorful styles : from young men looking for simple yet edgy designs to sophisticated gentlemen in search of modern elegance.
