LRS Studio's Decoupage-Inspired Collection for S/S 2018 Tomorrow Magazine
For LRS Studio SS18, designer Raul Solis debuted a punchy new collection inspired by decoupage and the strong multi-layered work of German Dada artist Hannah Höch. Bearing vivid patterns, the collection’s stark lines paved roads that crawled over a variety of remixed halters, blouses, dresses, and jackets. Printed cut-out coats, dresses, and deconstructed pants were made in an original print, its origins deconstructed wheat-paste posters seen throughout New York City.
Solis collaged key menswear wardrobe essentials as a way of expressing his feminist attitude towards the male-dominated workplace - a timely nod to Höch’s work. “Hannah’s dark sensibilities and use of color resonated as strong as her messages,” said Solis. “[She] had a lot to prove in her male-dominated team and used current events and fashion press clippings to create a multi-layered visual diary that is uniquely hers.” And so is LRS’ SS18 collection - a bevy of photomontage, clean, geometric shapes, and remixes that feel fresh in its post-minimal state.
