Manish Arora showcased his Fall-Winter 2012 RTW Collection at the Cité de la Mode yesterday at Paris Fashion Week. The collection received mixed reviews and the fumes from the freshly graffitied set wafted toward the front row making many cough. WWD writes, “The odorous emissions from the graffiti sprayers painting the show’s backdrop at Manish Arora made several in the crowd feel queasy and even a little trippy — a deliberate move, perhaps, as the designer’s surreal lineup could probably only be enjoyed in an altered state.”
Brooklyn-based graffiti master Judith Supine served as the inspiration for Manish Arora‘s rainbow-hued airbrushed collection. Fifties-style, nipped waist dresses embellished with sequined shag and motifs of lips or washed in watercolor, Bombers and short coats and stiff Aline skirts gleamed with a metallic finish. Washington Post reported, “A rich mix of materials were on display, including dyed Scandinavian Saga fur, crepe and silk satin. But it was a shame that in many of the pieces the fabrics were colored and embroidered to near-death, diminishing their visual quality.”
