As one rounded the raised platforms, alternating and descending daises of silvery grays, yellows, reds, and oranges saturated one’s visual intake. As if to break out of the achromatic and simple beginnings, the designs became more vibrant and energized. Shimmery yellows and oranges replaced the whites as tops and bottoms. Pleats got more prominent on a red dress, while a silvery shift received a bolt of yellow.
Completing the circle showed the final phase of Mirano’s “dinozation evolution,” though this was already evident throughout the collection via bone necklaces and bracelets. Here is where the elaborate vision of his designs truly shine. The beading that stood out in the latter phase of the collection was breathtaking. Done to look like dragon scales, the bustier of one green dress almost looked as if it would come alive. The other standout piece was a navy floor length dress with a sheer top that had an archaeopteryx bone emblazoned on to the torso in delicate beads.
Overall, Mathieu Mirano presented yet another stunning collection. Unlike the last season, this collection was more impactful and less overwhelming as he gradually built up to the complexly gorgeous beadwork he is fast becoming known for.
