The Neo Dia FW 2012 collection features an eccentric application of color to mesh materials and voluminous silhouettes. The series features a harsh juxtaposition of sunny and pastel colors combined with heavy structured leathers. The collection plays with modern shapes, building up the fabric into futuristic forms. The show also displayed geometric gold cuffs, which tied together the pastels and blacks. The most memorable piece is the highly patterned leather chest plate.
The line debuted at the L’Oreal Melbourne fashion festival. Neo Dia is designed by student duo Gavin Lowes and Becky Chua. The pair met on the first day of their studies at RMIT and began the collaboration. They combine their visions for exaggerated shapes and modern woven fabrics to render wearable fashion with an architectural twist.
The Neo Dia FW 2012 collection is perfect for the bold fashionista longing for an experimental ensemble of meshes, leathers and pastels.
