Lorick Fall/Winter 2010 Collection
Lorick presented its Fall/Winter 2010 collection titled “Agnes et Cocoons” or “Angels and Cocoons” at the Union Square Ballroom. Of the concept a post release stated, “In theory, the cocoon symbolizes an escape from reality or shelter, and forthcoming of change. Embracing light and nature that inspires: we can see gold doupions that shimmer and beading that glistens, both pulled in with natural fabrics always bringing the Lady back to earth.”
Surprisingly, the inspiration translated well in the collection and I immediately saw the strong use of earthy tone fabric along with gold accents. All very well done and by far the most lively presentations I attended this season. As it was super packed, they were drinks for the taken, and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves as they previewed the collection.
A line of 15 beautiful woman obviously dressed in Lorick were front and center for the presentation and party. The models were playful so it added to the spirit of the collection; and, they rotated among the few stools in the small showing area as we took pictures and mingled with other guests including the designer herself who is just about one of the nicest person one can ever met. Her former experience designing the ENTIRE T.S. Dixon collection is apparent in this collection — as this collection is cohesive, full of live, practical, whimsical, wearable and just plain pretty.
The collection is designed by Abigail Lorick, a former model who worked with Mossimo and Alberta Ferretti but eventually decided to try her luck at designing and became a student at FIT while also working at T. S. Dixon.
