Australian transplant Fernando Frisoni got his start in the fashion biz making super-structured menswear before giving womenswear a shot in the spring of 2009. And are we ever glad that he did: at once playful and daring, Frisoni's clothes captures a distinctly modern vibe while incorporating classic shapes and unusual historical references.
For Fall 2011 (yes, Aussie's are already talking about next fall), Frisoni played with fluffy textures to create more dynamic vesions of familiar wardrobe staples like a-line shifts and babydoll dresses-- both of which were incarnated in extremely fuzzy form for fall. A sort of "wild west" motif, detectable in everything from the cow-print oxfords to epic floppy-brimmed hats, gives the collection its roguish, even dangerous appeal.
Though Frisoni offers plenty to love if you're frequently in need of cocktail attire, his more experimental pieces for day—like an asymmetrical button-down with a sweeping tail in the back—are, we think, the collection's real selling point.
