Mathieu Mirano Spring 2013: A spectrum of color and talent

Mathieu Mirano made his New York Fashion Week debut during the Fall 2012 collections with a very impressive, dark offering – a striking debut made even more so by the fact that he was only 20 years old at the time.  His followup effort for Spring 2013 five months later showed a marked improvement, if that was even possible.

This time, the native New Yorker ventured to the opposite end of the color spectrum amid an eerie futuristic space-age backdrop unveiled at his Lincoln Center presentation.  Throughout a variety of looks from evening gowns to jackets to even capes and sweaters, white dominated about half of the collection through various materials and sequins.  Rainbow motifs and other colors – bright orange, peacock blue, gray snakeskin prints – served as shocking contrasts.

With two shows now under his belt, Mirano is an immensely talented designer who should be closely watched in the future.  Hollywood fans should witness his edgy looks on the red carpet sooner rather than later.
