For their joint BOFFO expression, SOFTLab has designed an awesome kaleidoscope to highlight the collection of The Lake & Stars. The collaborative fashion + architecture installation marks the fourth of five temporary exhibitions (be sure to view our coverage of the previous three) and began its two week run this past Friday. Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman’s ultra feminine collection embodies a broader view of lingerie as a fashion expression, and, when teamed with Michael Szivos’ edgy display, the line offers a sophisticated and contemporary aesthetic. More images and more about the designers after the break.
Having designed previously at mass and boutique brands, Dekker and Zilberman sought to create a collection that would serve as a counterpart to their ready-to-wear designer contemporaries; the brand would be inclusive, friendly, and lighthearted as a statement of personal style.
For the installation, Michael Szivos of SOFTlab has created a unique partition wall of framed views that isolate selected pieces from the collection. The wall, plus the prismatic lighting effects, shape a runway-like section of the gallery with clothing displayed on either side.
