MB Fashion Week: Alexandre Herchcovitch

Though this collection was wrought with delicate overlapping of lace and soft symmetrical wool pieces and a knit coat/cropped jacket combo made with small silver beads inset in the crevices that looked like polka dots from afar, Alexandre Herchcovitch says his inspiration came from the violent forces of nature. Volcanic rocks, magma, and rock sediment are recreated through the juxtaposition of neon yellow lace inset in the cracks of black wool dresses and coats resembling magma exploding through black stone. Contrasting fabrics and surface treatments used in the collection further explore this creative union of natural elements. Silk chiffon and aged silk satin are paired with rich cashmere and lace. Sumptuous chiffon fabrics are transformed with ink stains resembling the cloud of ashes from an active volcano. Black lace insets on the hips of a cropped pant that allude to 19th century bustles and bondage strips used over the arms of a coat indicate a restraint or controlling of nature. Accessories complete the theme, using black pearl necklaces and bracelets with magnet stone closings, textured crocodile skin belts, heavy suede boots, and a clutch made to look like a cut stone made of resin.
