Chelsea Goldman pushed her tightly edited CF. Goldman collection forward for spring, playing with shapes and proportions in a sophisticated yet seductive way. Voluminous tops and dresses were corseted tightly at the waist, creating a modern-romantic look.
The designer, who is deeply involved in the contemporary art world, also channeled its influences this season. She looked to the works of German artist Martin Kippenberger, interpreting them with playful gingham numbers, such as an off-the-shoulder dress that played off different-sized ginghams and subtle color mixes.
There were crafty elements, too, such as a circular dot motif embroidered on a maxiskirt as well as laser cut into a crisp shirt. Goldman also showed a few utilitarian looks — a carryover from last season — the highlight of which was a cool military-inspired jumpsuit.
