For Raun Larose’s S/S 2012 collection, superheroes played a great involvement in the inspiration of the collection. This time around, anime, which was a fond memory of growing up for the designer, ignited a lot of design elements. “Optimus Prime” who lead the Autobots in the anime series Transformers is the perfect title to this collection.
Working with structural silhouettes and paneling shapes that are found in his classic jacket reinforced the inspiration. As neoprene became the hero fabric in prior seasons, boucle, felt, and metallic added a wider range to the almost tri-color palette. Also new this season was the collaboration with stylist Raul Guerrero. Raul x Raun Larose was an idea that was developed simply to cater to the modern-working-young-man in a more forward light. This collaboration consist of three pieces (turtleneck snood, briefcase tote, and belt fanny pack) that serve as accessories but most importantly multi-functionality.
