The nomadic esthetic of Laura Siegel’s F/W 2012 collection signifies her relationship and outlook between humans and earth.  The dusty colours, soft layers and abstract prints have an organic quality that — once released from the runway — are harmonious alongside the natural elements. It is a design philosophy shared by the eastern hemisphere, and it’s not hard to recognize the heavy influence of our global counterparts in her collection. Refreshingly, Siegel is an emerging talent with a great concern for the future of fashion and the sustainability of our planet, and it is this, her rustic vision, that showcases her amongst this week’s most modern of all.
