Fashion Watch: Ivarluski Aseron

Fashion Watch: Ivarluski Aseron

November 11 and 13, 2008
Makati Shangri-La Hotel

It was to a full house that Ivarluski Aseron presented his recent collection for the Nokia-Mastercard Femme Visa Series of Fashion Watch. This comes as no surprise as many of the women featured in Style Bible's party galleries proudly wear the structured designs of the designer.

The salon show was a sweet and slow seduction that afternoon. Black lace shirts masked the dangerously low neckline dips and revealing cutouts of figure-skimming dresses. These underpinnings were already worked into each garment “to avoid the inconvenience of having to wear multiple garments,” explained Ivarluski.

Art Deco patterns sewn in contrast stitching on shifts toyed with the eye, nearly hiding the half-inch spaces between each piece of the pattern. Arches seemed to fly off the garments, accentuating the natural bodyline. Fabric swooped high over shoulders, bended to the natural curve of the breasts and hips, and flowed from behind as a partial peplum over the bum.

Ivarluski employed origami, folding the neutral colored fabrics into crisp shapes or neat bunches. He gave an “unwrapped” quality to his clothes, revealing the lace or contrast lining beneath. The magic lies in how, despite his unabashed use of grand architectural techniques, he managed to draw out silhouettes that were sleek and utterly sexy.

The timid need not subscribe. This collection is for the fiercely sensual variety.
