Explorations into shape and line on the human body are nothing new in the world of fashion, but we really like the newest line by Matthew Ames, a reclusive Brooklyn-based designer who launched his namesake line quietly five seasons ago in Paris. “This season, I was inspired by the Bauhaus design principles of basic geometric shapes, and artists of the movement such as Josef Albers, Laszlo Moholy-Nago, and Vasily Kandinsky,” says Ames. “I was interested in removing the unnecessary and returning to the initial principles of modern design.” Check out the circle and diamond motifs that reappear in avant-garde ways but arenâ€™t too fussy or overdone.
