MAN AND MUSE
Michael Lo Sordo is one of Australia’s most gifted young designers having recently hurled his latest Spring/Summer collection down the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia this month. Alexandra Spencer is a model/blogger with brains and a following that may one day, very soon, rival the Beatles. We got cozy with the man and his muse during New York Fashion Week to snap some pics, chat about all things dark ‘n’ stormy, and maybe even raid the mini bar…
Talk to me about your latest collection. What were your inspirations?Michael Lo Sordo: There was a significant change in the way I was feeling in my approach to Spring/Summer. I wanted get to the core of the MLS woman and look to moving her forward … But not before she had to turn back to her dark side to find the light. Infusing the collection with a dark and stormy marble print, done by hand, to represent strength and a real focus, which is also the essence of the cut. I really wanted to be strict with tailoring, but still remaining classic and modern. More and more I find that when designing, the thing that most influences and inspires me is the woman herself.
