The CHROMAT Fall/Winter 2013 collection takes inspiration from an aesthetic of retro futurism. Studying 60s architecture, the label's designer Becca McCharen explores structural engineering techniques and translates them into wearable garments with a sci-fi edge.

Showcasing both body-conscious silhouettes and architectural grid corseting, the CHROMAT Fall/Winter 2013 womenswear collection pushes the boundaries of traditional garment construction and wardrobe styling.

From exaggerated proportions to rigid shoulder silhouettes, this collection is guaranteed to make for a stunning editorial choice when photographed. While its gridded elements reference an array of 60s architecture, its geometric pattern palette and minimalist mix of nude and white tones are also reminiscent of the eras MOD style movement. Reviving a past aesthetic, this vivid catalog proves that bold graphics and stiff shaped garments are making a comeback. Stats for Gridded Corset Couture Trending: Older & Buzzing
