INCA LILY COLLECTION

Always sensual and cosmopolitan, Inca Lily is an archetypal collection focusing on designs that are form enhancing, that elevate a particular aspect of the body. This generous collection of 12 gowns, plus six skirt-and-bodice separates to mix and match, is full of magnificent details — from architectural guipure laces to dazzling appliqued embroidery details.

The structure of boning and corsetry, and the geometry of guipure lace draw attention to collar bones, or the curve of the hips, or the line of the waist. The artistic process is about deconstruction and emphasis, while still weaving a thread that holds all the elements together. Silhouettes offer plenty of choice, from ball gowns to A-lines to figure-defining mermaids.
