Lela Rose Fall 2012 centers around the fusion of structure and movement as seen in the works of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.

Calatrava’s focus on the poetics of motion combines romanticism with functionality as seen in linear labyrinth organza, hazed floral embroideries and carbonized silk.

Both an architect and engineer, Calatrava’s signature bridges and railway stations set the backdrop for long, angular silhouettes. Floor length day time dresses in cable-stayed plaid and grid lace stove pipe sleeves effortlessly balancegeometry with a natural fluidity.

Brick fil coupé, galvanized organza, and silk cloqué are highlighted in colors such as rust, sulfurous amber, dark bronze and white silver.
