Alexis Barrell's AW13 collection 'Metropolis' shows a confident merging of German expressionism, industrial colours and graphic lines with distinct architectural forms.
Offering a nod to the 1940’s, the collection moves away from last season's feminine prints and towards a futuristic and more urban feeling line. Strong influences include futurist artists such as Giacomo Balla, pre-war Berlin, and contemporary surrealist illustrators such as Olaf Hajek.
The colours include concrete, cement, steel and black on black, with accents of acid yellow and mauve, oiled greens, electric blue, and orange. Calf skin and supple mohair are teamed with strict, technical fabrics and signature silks to create a truly varied collection. NL
