Alon Livne Fall 2014

Alon Livne Fall 2014

For Fall/Winter 2014, Designer Alon Livne is inspired by the 1920’s epic silent film, “The Sheik,” treating themes of early imperialism in Morocco, when the privileged of the world, and their daughters, journeyed across the sea, armed with trousseaus, on an oceanic pursuit of culture and romance. This season, Livne takes dimension back to the garment, reviving his fascination with art-noveau and organic-shell-like shapes, now interpreted into elaborate hand-embroidery and intricate beading. Livne’s muse this season is the oldest daughter of international royalty, an enigmatic gentle, graceful vision evoking an alluring combination of intellect and naivete; sincerity mixed with the curiosity of a blossoming sensuality. Watch the video below as we chat with Ilan about his Fall 2014 collection.
