Mathieu Mirano showed in New York for the very first time at The Box at Lincoln Center last February. His was a presentation full of Chinese inspirations and bold colors of red and shiny gold. Other colors, browns, blacks, and blues, were more muted in tone. This ready-to-wear collection is perfect for the evening, containing mostly gowns of heavy fabrics and pieces with exaggerated tunics of gold accents and intricate appliqués.
Mirano created a compelling collection of emperor-like clothing through the use of black leather and dragon-scale embroideries, combined with silk chiffon and organza. His soft wools and furs had exposed zippers, claw studs, metal dragon heads and talons, creating a very raw intensity within his collection. There was also a nice variety of dresses, coats, jackets, gowns, blouses, and pants with detailed fabric layering, just perfect for this new luxury brand.
