The name of the collection truly says it all. For A/W12 Inbar created a fantasy dream world. Intricate tulle with laser cut metalic faux-leather in candy colours of the rain bow. Some of the looks were paired with soft, grey wool coats which reminded me of childhoods, being wrapped up warm in a duffel coat with party dress underneath. The bejewelled masks, with huge gobstopper crystals created an air of mystery, who were these beautiful visions before us?
For her Autumn / Winter 2012 collection Israeli-born Inbar Spector takes inspiration from the theme of escapism. This collection deals with the question “where does skin end and body start”? By not accepting nature, we are trying to force it to look like what we see as ideal. Inbar Spector has created her AW12 collection using visions of fairytale, manga, dreams and circus clowns. The collection incorporates lace, silks and perforated faux leather in a palette that includes: smoked pink, light green, nude colour and gold. Inbar Spector also uses ruffles for detailing to represent the utopia nature of her collection. Inbar Spector’s eccentric patterns are capturing the imaginations of London’s most cutting edge scenesters with her “outrageous” constructivism, crinolines and corsetry. Inbar Spector comments, ‘dissatisfaction from our body drives us to change it, I see this as a way of escapism. I was always fascinated by plastic surgeries and I wanted to make a collection that will mix the body and the garment and to deal with this way of escapism.’ The headpieces are designed specifically for this collection by Lara Jensen to complete the desired fairytale look.
