Review Collection

Hanako Maeda has had quite a year. Back in February she showed formal, confectionary clothes at Lincoln Center for Fall. June saw an about-face as ADEAM turned out sporty, sometimes space-age ensembles for Resort. And for Spring ’15, she struck a compelling balance between the two. Bearing in mind Yves Klein’s Anthropométries series (part paintings, part performance art pieces in which the artist directed nude women as his “human paintbrushes”—dipped in International Klein Blue, of course), Maeda heat-transferred glossy, globule-like shapes onto neoprene frocks and separates. Fully fashioned pleated knits were at once futuristic and classic, as seen in midi dresses. The boxy, midriff-grazing tops seemed an especially long way from the relatively patrician looks on Fall’s catwalk.
