liquid architecture

I recently discovered NY based designer Lauren Felton, and her line of avant garde, minimalist apparel. I'm impressed by how Felton manages to create apparel that has a sculptural quality, yet is imminently wearable (or at least a lot of it is...) The feature of her designs that I find most distinctive is how they highlight a woman's back. This part of the body is constantly underemphasized, which is a shame because baring your back in a tasteful way is much more sensual and interesting than the oft overdone cleavage. Fenton's designs aren't something that I would wear everyday, as many are more art than fashion, but some of her pieces, including the cutout top below are stunning.
