Sandrine Philippe is a rising star in the Parisian fashion world. She has been designing for her eponymous label having launched her first collection for Autumn Winter 2010. The Sandrine Philippe AW16, entitled Unplugged, can best be described as dystopian, post-apocalyptic fashion at its finest. While generally viewed as a menswear label, this collection is overtly androgynous, using both men and women to walk the collection down the runway. While the collection is almost entirely black, the Unplugged story is told through an amazing array of textures and interesting use of fabrics. The leather pieces throughout the collection, and there are plenty, are astonishing! The way she has cut, treated and textured the leather is truly something which sets Sandrine Philippe apart from the pack. This collection represents a break from the present, allowing us to be free of common constraints and challenging the fashion status quo. It is , at the same time, the beautiful future of tailoring with shredded tops coupled with well-presented casual joggers. We also love an asymmetric cut, and there are plenty of those to go around. Though to the untrained eye, it could appear that the collection is full of fabric thrown together; however, the details are among what makes this collection so impressive. The leather hood on the wool cape, the wrap of the wool coat, the belts, closures, all prove why Sandrine Philippe should soon be a global sensation. One of the show-stopping pieces is the wool coat with ostrich feather and leather trim detail. Take a look at the collection.
