Fashion Designer: Ioanna Kourbela Spring/Summer 2014 The Ethics of Aesthetics.


Tribal glamazons of the cityscape – this is my first and entirely deep impression of the Spring/Summer 2014 collection of Ioanna Kourbela entitled under the exact to the subject name “The Ethics of Aesthetics”.

There is a strong factor of crisp white  esthetics interlaced with clean cuts, mild and earthy shades that are implemented with the ethnical factors of laser-cut elements and pleats.  The garment seems to be designed for full comfort in femininity and ubiquitous lightness. Some bare components like open back dresses, transparent fabrics and asymmetrical lines definitely stands for the balance to pouring forms and waterfall shapes. Such a conceal-reaveal concept. What is more, the collections is accentuated with the small post bags, cute headbands and platform footwear ans flat leather sandals.

“The Ethics of Aesthetics

If the body in reality is a garment of the soul,

the inner being cannot take any other clothes,

only extensions of the body.

… and if the fabrics, colors and pulses

succeed to reach a naked body to morality,

then, yes,

you can say that it is summer.”
