DALLAS, May 27, 2009 / FW/ — Ana Gonzalez, the designer behind the label Ana Locking started as an accessories designer before delving into ready-to-wear, hence it’s not surprising that her accessories collection can stand on its own while also complimenting her prêt-a-porter collection.
In her own words, Ana Locking described her prêt-a-porter Fall 2009 collection as, “a rigorous beginning of very marked structures which create, on the one hand, loose volumes in sleeves, contrasting with the stiffness of reinforced vests and figure-hugging trousers as if they were armor, replacing engraved metal with pleats in herring-bone and organza and taffetas.”
As to be expected, the same adjectives can describe the Ana Locking Fall 2009 accessories wherein there are also a “very marked structures” as Ana Locking proposed wedge shoes wherein the soles are also platforms.
Stiletto heels looked dangerously sexy as it became higher courtesy of the platform sole. See on knee high boots wrapped with thin “belts” there is also an S&M feel but it is tempered with the references to medieval knights.
The “loose volumes” can easily refer to the totes with the supple leather and soft contours while the “engraved metal” can be used to described the gunmetal patent leather shoe for men.
