Perhaps not (unless of course this cruise collection is for the Nightmare Before Christmas). Androgynous silhouettes, state of the art fabrics, and a palette better suited for fall (with primarily: black, charcoal, burned orange, indigo and scarlet red colors). Inquiry: what exactly was going through the mind of Laura Lusuardi (head designer for Sportmax) when she designed this cruise collection? I ask not because the collection itself was lacking, but rather the timing seems off (like by a full season).
Taking the timing and supposed use of the collection out of the picture, you are left with a futuristic, Gotham City feel with just enough plunging necklines to add some sex appeal in this otherwise linear, asymmetrical and conservative collection.
As a personal note: Frankly I love this collection, but, I enjoy a sharp, edgy collection that walks the fine line of androgyny. The three looks that stood out the most: A highly tailored men’s style pinstripe suite with exaggerated sleeve and pant lengths; and a series of trenches that were beautiful, sharp, fitted and to quote Matt Scheier, “, slightly sinister”. Finally a white asymmetrical techno fabric sweater paired with a pencil cut leather skirt and periwinkle cut hand cloves.
So if you find yourself on a cruise to Greenland or Alaska this season and are in a jam, this is the collection to save the day.
