from House of Bibhu Mohapatra Added

    A couple of years ago, Bibhu Mohapatra traveled across the Atlantic by boat. While shuffling around the library during the seven-day trip, he stumbled upon the biography of writer, activist, and shipping heiress Nancy Cunard. (It was, indeed, a Cunard ship.) Mohapatra was enthralled. "She had such a compassionate heart and creative mind," he said at a preview the week before his Spring show. "She broke barriers and stood for her beliefs." (The British-born aristocrat was known for many things, but one of them was her battles against racism and Fascism.) While Cunard's personal style was well documented—in her most famous photo, she's wearing a tough leather jacket and a stack of African wooden bangles, which were quite avant-garde for the time—Mohapatra mainly chose to let her spirit inform his work. A geometric print of graphed-in circles pervaded the collection. There was a jacquard version—used on separates like a crop top with organza panels hanging down the sides—and a digitally printed iteration, done on everything from tops to dresses, including a cap-sleeve silk and cotton gown. Mohapatra even took it one step further, beading a graph-like pattern on the skirt of a crepe column that was otherwise covered in crystal poppies. The designer's subtle ode to Cunard's leather jacket came in the form of a collarless skirt suit made from leather and silk strips woven together. (It looked almost like ribbing.) One of the best ideas was a windowpane-printed silk blouse that came in black and lilac, its big pussy bow tied in the back. Mohapatra's client is surely after his formal gowns—he's not afraid to use print, and they seem to appreciate that. But the day offerings were particularly strong this season. His collection was feminine and fitted, but a little eclectic, too. Something Cunard might very well have appreciated. STYLE.com

                Man Ray's evocative photographs of his muses Kiki du Montparnasse and Lee Miller provided the inspiration for the Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2013 collection. For the supporting film, the designer discovered the Plumb Bronson House, a training school for wayward women during the period of Man Ray, and utilized it as the location. The film follows a woman's journey through a Man Ray and Bibhu Mohapatra fantasy, where contemporary interpretations of photograms with solarizing and image processing techniques channel Man Ray and an avant-garde music track, customized to the picture, contributes to the dark October night's cinematic tension.
