After seeing this Odyn Vovk ad on Vimeo I was pretty excited to see this season’s AW 2011 presentation.
As always, Odyn Vovk designer Austin Serbanenko did not disappoint. This season’s title was “Spiral”. The show was filled with quintessential black, supple leathers and deep burgundys. We saw the same draped silhouettes and easy to mix style we have come to expect from Serbanenko.
Some of my personal favorites were the boots, ranging from sharkskin and oiled calf to pony hair. I am a complete fan of pony hair and how the texture feels. Also there were leather chaps and far from being burly and overly biker in their nature, they were paired with burgundy trousers which gave them a more casual wearable feel. Overall, I would say this season, Serbanenko took classic biker staples and made them into everyday wear.
The venue was a small subterranean brick lined location found at the end of an unknown alley in Manhattan. Everything about it spoke of Odyn Vovk’s style and essence. Though by the end of the show I think I may have got a sun tan from the hot lights used to illuminate the models. It was also nice to see some of the same models from last season in the show.
