Well-studied fashion designer Breeyn McCarney’s first showing (Fall 2010) wasn’t a full, sell-able collection that will snapped up by buyers – but a brief, enchanting waft of beautiful texture and ethereal delicacy – for those who appreciate custom quality – presented in mohair knits, feminine lace trims and hand-beaded pearls.
Titled and inspired by ‘Hardboiled Wonderland’ (and the End of the World), a novel by Japanese author Haruki Murakami and by ‘The Ruins of Detroit’ – a beautiful photographic project by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre showing once gorgeous but now dilapidated spaces – the collection was created with the idea of finding beauty out of despair.
The Fall 2010 collection includes silky dresses with muddied sheer skirts, tattered knit sweaters and cut-out fur embellishments that denote the most feminine, luxurious apocalyptic feel but in soft hues – all using sustainable fabric and reclaimed fur.
Breeyn McCarney makes all her pieces custom. Combined with ethical fabric choices and delicate hand-work, this essentially adds up to tailored luxury clothing within the budgets of the most strapped fashion mavens.
