For his Spring 2013 collection, Argentinian designer, Diego Binetti looked to the ocean for inspiration. Specifically the mother goddess Yemaya, an African-Brazilian goddess of the sea. His collection features layered and asymmetrical looks with a mystical vibe. Binetti delivered ethereal looks that were hand painted, screen printed, and featured intricate embroidery.
Silk chiffons dominated the collection in sensual flowing looks, leather strips and harnesses (a hot item this season) showed an edgier, sexier side to the collection which featured lots of muted colors found in the ocean (seaweed, coral, foam, sand, etc) peppered with a few black pieces and accessories.
I always love Binetti’s design aesthetic, his collections are always powerful, romantic and speak directly to a woman’s strength and power in relation to the elements – earth, fire, wind and this season, water.
