Dualism SS14/15 explores double vision and duality. Ginger & Smart has taken that which may be as it seems and overlays it with the unexpected. The collection explores structure in fluidity by balancing positive and negative space with textured simplicity. Prints are delicately layered with geometrics merging with luminous florals. Backlit roses fade into darkness on sheer silks. Lush snakeskins are distorted and layered to create a three dimensional effect. A classic stripe is broken and distorted with layers of colored stripes on hems and necklines. We see iterations of textures such as reptilian French lace cut in slick silhouettes and paired seamlessly with a white leather jacket which mimics this same Reptilian motif. Subtle textures in tailoring include ivory camouflage jacquard in a polished yet provocative pant suit. Luxe giraffe-like metallic cottons are embedded with sheer panels of mesh. Rich and dark brooding jackets and slip dresses trick the eye with a double lapel or neckline in soft leather inserts. Slick stretch leathers are inlayed with plush cotton French lace panels in a fusion of contrasting textures. For Dualism SS14/15, Ginger & Smart combine fluidity, structure and movement with strength and purpose. The designers shift silhouettes forward with long lean lengths balanced perfectly with chic skirt splits or an exposed décolleté. Jackets are textured and precise, balancing out fluid hemlines. Luxurious pima cotton and merino wool knitwear merge sheer and opaque panels reflecting the linear elements of the garments. Ginger & Smart adorn their collection with their signature rose gold finishes in a fitting finish on a polished and playful collection. The Ginger & Smart Accessory line reflects the duality seen in their RTW line and features layers of lush texture in subtle tones of rich blues and cool neutrals. Shoes feature rose ankle straps and graphic lines while sport-luxe flats are inlaid with mesh panels. The covetable collection of structured bags feature rich navy-croc and neutral, reptilian textures in slick graphic shapes with graphic rose-gold hardware. Dualism SS14/15 has a clear message: The Ginger & Smart woman is multi-layered and full of contrasts and this is the strength her allure.
