The Asher Levine Fall 2010 collection is a coal-black array of draped and structured designs that fuse animals like fox, broadtail and emu all in one piece.

Think Rick Owens. Think Ann Demeulemeester. Essentially, think dark. Twenty-two-year-old Levine's eponymous clothing label is part monstrous and part magical. Check out the Rorschach-esque short film by Char Alfonzo that showcases the Asher Levine Fall 2010 collection above.

Implications - Despite the fervent disdain environmentally friendly groups have for fashion labels utilizing animal skin or fur, the luxury market for any product considered taboo or rare is still strong. Corporations and brands can capitalize on this desire by focusing on the exclusive or dangerous image of a product.
