The Emmy Kasbit brand just released their ‘Disturbia’ SS ‘16 collection. The fast emerging brand is known to go for the unconventional with their styles and cuts. This is no different.
The collection featured a range of menswear and womenswear lines, which showcased good amount of colors and a number of unusual details, which work to set the brand apart.
The offerings included, suits, blazers, jackets, pants for both men and women. Although the brand employs certain details to ensure a fresh and modern look, some aspects of this collection could have been better.
The first thing that worked was the menswear, especially with the ivory looking pieces, which came on very strong, with an attention to tailoring and fitting. The silhouettes were very clean and sharp and the hemlines looked professionally done. The belting technique was an added genius.
However, the cuts on the jacket could have been better thought out. The idea of the asymmetrical hemlines on the blazers left the pieces looking more uneven than creative. It takes a lot more effort to overturn the rules of symmetry and balance to create something individual yet functional.
The womenswear on the other hand, included a lot of color, which was indeed fantastic and effective, as colors appeal to the women folk.
The aspects that could have been better has to do with the tailoring and finish, which quite honestly kills a lot of designs today. It can be very tricky working with light textured fabrics, because if they aren’t hemmed or joined or sewn right, they come off as tacky.
A little more to the tailoring of the women’s line and it could have been a much stronger collection. That being said, each designer is entitled to his/her own individual aesthetic and means of interpretation.
