Style Salvage gives us a look into the second collection from designer Mohsin Ali, a solid follow-up to his initial Fall/Winter 2011 debut. Revolving around the use of a clean, minimalist aesthetic, Ali finds inspiration from the works of several renowned industrial designers and architects, and the way they approach their craft. Additionally, Spring/Summer 2011 welcomes a partnership with famous luggage brand Globetrotter, offering three different cases for the collection.
From the line drawings and sketches of Hadid which inspired the lines of the shirts and jersey to the way Wagner, Eames and Le Corbusier mixed fabrications and techniques across their products. Taking all of this and more into account Mohsin Ali approaches this collection with his belief in a very clean aesthetic, the mixing of fabrication and the use of innovation. The fresh palette of white, beige, almond, silver grey and navy combined and a clean, narrower silhouette compared to AW11, mean that the collection again has a hint of maturity which compliments Ali’s love for refined detailing and technical finishes.
