Making his debut both in the U.S. and at New York's Fashion Week, Graeme Armour has a uniquely defined design aesthetic. His styles defy category and could be broken up and worn with different pieces and styles depending on your fashion sensibility and willingness to work a bit on the wild side.
Graeme Armour commented:
I am really thrilled at the opportunity of working with Swarovski on my AW 2010/11 collection. They have allowed me to develop my linked metal garments idea with added Crystallized Swarovski Elements that are on track and looking very special indeed… With NY quickly approaching we are working closely with the team at Swarovski and they have been amazing in listening to our thoughts and grasping my somewhat crazy thoughts. I can’t thank them enough for their support.
This is a true avant-garde line that has taken some inspiration from Yoko Ono as well as Graeme's own imagination. The combination in the fringy ruffled leather pants is genius, and not everyone could pull that off with such attention to detail. While he works with a great many metal details on these different garments, it's interesting to note that while leggings or tight slim pants work with a lot of the tops, the latter could also be worn easily with a pencil skirt.
Armour's creative genius might not appeal to all but for those willing to step out on the wild side and walk a new fashion line, they would be very happy with all the attention they'd get, particularly with the last dress, which has huge metal chunks attached to cashmere. Yummy!
