Jimmy is here

Still wandering Down Under, this time for New Zealand Fashion Week
where designer James Dobson, better known as Jimmy D, made 
his return with a gothic black on black collection.

The Auckland based designer came to fashion through photography
creating his own label in 2004 when he won the Mercedes Start-up
Award with his very first collection.

Jimmy D's s/s 11 collection ”Power Trip” has a dark yet elegant 
look with a sense of mocking humor in which androgynous, graceful
silhouettes are skillfully emphasized by drapes and asymmetries.

Jimmy's style has punk echoes but it's never excessive, his
dark mood is lightened by the fabrics quality and well tailored
shapes: what actually caught my eye is the way he makes the
body visible without stripping it off as well the way he plays with
see-through and transparencies with neatness and irony.

all lookbook photos in all likelihood by the designer himself
Designer James Dobson is also the co-owner of Auckland's
avant-garde boutique “Children of Vision” and runs his own 
weblog wittily named “Jimmy D was here”.
What a busy talent he is!
