TFW diary: Moody knits at OR by Angela Chen
By Gillian Pryor
As the lights dimmed on the runway for the OR by Angela Chen show, an inky abstract movie illuminated the screens and gave us a hint at the texture that was yet to come, while a slowed heavy-bass version of Bat for Lashes’ “Daniel” played heavy on the speakers. Already the mood was set. The young designer, a graduate of Parsons who has already dressed the celebrity likes of Kirsten Dunst and Chloë Sevigny, proved that she knows how to work those knitting needles. Chunky and loose knits in a strict palette of white, black and shades of purple appeared as everything from body suits to capelets to bustiers. Certainly runway-ready if not quite ready for reality, we’re keeping dibs on this collection (and the talented designer behind it).
