The detachable collar mavens of Eleven Objects presented their first full Ready To Wear collection for Fall Winter '12, inspired by the film Amadeus and New Order album covers by Peter Saville.
Models coiffed in 18th century-inspired style sported the collection against an austere gallery backdrop as a string quartet played a mix of Mozart symphonies and “Bizarre Love Triangle."
In the Eleven Objects tradition, FW12 combined a wonderful mix of colors and materials, including gold leaf, patent leather, shearling, and brocade.
"Both Linh Thi and I love interesting textures,” Christine explains. “We loved the mix between traditionally luxe fabrics and more modern fabrics that aren't usually paired together.”
While the line's expansion may seem like a large undertaking, the seasoned designers were in familiar territory. “Before Eleven Objects, our experience had been in Ready To Wear and contemporary womenswear."
"We always had it in the back of our minds to do clothing but it never felt right until this season. We developed more garment based accessories and it felt like they needed to be seen with clothing."
