One of the most promising new voices on the New York scene, Serkan Sarier showed a Brood collection that was a highlight of the week’s wind-down. Inspired by Antony Gormley sculptures and rose prints, the look was consistent with the sporty romance, here updated in vivid color and pattern, that Sarier has established over the course of a few short seasons.
Dresses featured multiple prints — black-and-white and full-color versions of roses — strategically sewn together on one piece. Silhouettes were for the most part short and detailed with Sarier’s signature performance effects, such as utility pockets and zippers. Sculpted, hourglass jackets with wide, poetic necklines were worn over racer-back lace tanks. There were also short silk track shorts, out from which lace biker shorts peeked. Such energetic combinations infused the lineup with a sense of youthful experimentation typically found on the London runways, which was a nice, novel thing to see among the young Americans.
