Walking into Bartolami Gallery for the PH5 FW17 presentation felt like I was stepping onto the clouds. I was immediately greeted by a completely white room housing two ginormous white balloons like eyes wide open who gave you a stare like, wait ‘til you get inside. As I entered the next room I realized I was now officially in the sky. Giant white balloons filled the room like a grouping of clouds serving as a backdrop to the evenly distributed pedestals used to elevate the beautiful knitted pieces of fun!
You immediately notice the layering and the mix-n-matching of prints and woven colorful circles drawing their inspiration from the balloons. Shoulder-baring models wearing half tucked knits and offset buttoning create asymmetrical looks complimenting the white bubbly background. And as if the sun were going down on a perfect day the hues of pink, blue, white and yellow emerge on the pieces making for a seamless sunset to the collection. Stepping back and taking it all in once again I was drawn to a few pieces which became my favorites of the show. I hope you enjoy! xoxo – Slightly Flirty c/o Gina Papa.
