FW13: OPENING CEREMONY
The new Opening ceremony is all about time traveling this season. Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are bringing us this time to Las Vegas during the 50′s to celebrate a new collaboration with Elvis Presley Enterprise. The collection features iconic visual elements from the King’s life such as song titles (“Heartbreak Hotel” and “Love Me Tender”), lettering from the singer’s record sleeves and crystal details in the style of Elvis’ legendary “Taking Care of Business”.
They also created, as always, all-over crazy patterns using piano keyboards or Las Vegas graphic elements (hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs). It’s simple, playful and cool.
The collection includes strong outerwear pieces, especially parkas with fancy fox fur hoods and rabbit fur linings, the classic Opening Ceremony varsity jacket in navy/bordeaux and black/white colorways, peacoats, parkas, overcoats, moto-jackets, and zip-up pullovers.
The collection will be available next August at OC stores and online. Check out my favorite looks.
