More on Adolfo Sanchez presented at “Hope in the City”

Adolfo Sanchez’s  Fall/Winter 2010 Collection was inspired by the 1920’s-1940’s.  Sanchez states, “I wanted to take ideas from the past and bring them to life with a new edgy approach.”

Thus he created corset’s from leather and denim and then embellished them with crystals, spikes, chains, and hand painted saying’s like “How Do I Look” or “Gorgeous” on them (image above and 2 immediately below). The accessories were also quite hard.  These consisted of suede and leather cuffs covered in grommets tied with strips of leather.  There are vintage inspired hats made of crocodile embossed leather and many other fabrics through out the collection.  Some of the looks were paired up with leopard lycra and bleach treated cotton leggings.  Fur was also something new at Adolfo Sanchez, though Sanchez had used it before, this season about 70% of the furs used are recycled Mink or Muskrat.  Sanchez used the furs for scarves, sheared vest, and bracelets.
