I came accross this collection this weekend browsing my normal stomping grounds online and was so excited that I found Chromat! The designs are bold, wearable- structured art, available to women like me who don’t always want to follow the latest trends but create their own. As a woman who isn’t afraid to take a risk on an outfit or be risqué, I am so impressed and inspired by Becca McCharen, the mastermind behind Chromat’s designs, way of just getting risqué right! The structures of her caged designs really exaggerate a woman’s shape in an S&M kind of way; exuding sex and sexyness without looking cheap. What’s even more amazing is that each piece (even down to the swim suits) can be pulled off (for those who dare) without leaving you to look like you came out of the pages of Lady Gaga’s dreams (although for some that would be a dream– [raising my hand]. I just adore this line and cant wait to get my hands on one of the caged dresses and headpieces. That Mickey Mouse headpiece is MINEEEEE!
Check out some of my favorite pieces from her A/W 2012 line and current collection below:
Her designs can be purchased online at Chromat and can be found in select stores in New York, California, Texas, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney.
