Recently Emily Factor previewed her Spring Summer 2012 ready to wear collection in collaboration with accessories brand Alex & Lee, at the MB Galleries in downtown LA, a space that was beautifully suited for the presentation.
For inspiration Factor began her collection with her paintings that were later translated into vibrantly printed fabrics revealing the sacred geometry in succulent orbs, flowering cabbages and ammonite fossils, with layers of ceramic and mossy textures steeped throughout.
Factor kept her silhouettes close to the body with soft structures that draped the frame with fluid ease offering a rich day to evening versatility.
Alex & Lee’s Spring Summer 2012 collection “Crystal Visions,” inspired by opposing forces of nature, combined both hard and soft elements pairing curved arcs and pointed jagged crystals with organic cord and inorganic minerals, representing both earth and sky. The jewelry was the perfect compliment to Factor’s collection.
