Canadian painter Dorothea Rockburne has an incredible talent for applying mathematical principles to abstract forms. Inspired by the works of Rockburne, Lebanese designer Sandra Mansour developed her Fall/Winter 2014 collection according to the same principles. Mansour often turns to the world of art for inspiration, and her finesse in exploring the interplay of symmetry and texture proves to be right on the mark when it comes to seasonal trends. Geometric abstraction heavily influenced the runways for Fall/Winter 2014, and Mansour’s version is rendered in feminine forms and gorgeous fabrics. Glittering dresses run the gamut from gothic to romantic, while daywear looks modernize Edwardian modesty with eccentric touches like knotted rope belts and saw-tooth sleeves. A palatial palate of royal blue, ivory, and jet black serve luxurious lace and crêpe textures beautifully. Mansour’s digital print, which she’s designed herself, looks provocative and elegant on floor-sweeping capes, full skirts, and flared frocks. High-minded principles find an outlet for expression in Mansour’s forthcoming collection, and her intelligent and lushly crafted pieces convey the application of art without sacrificing style.
