>> Serkan Sarier — alumnus of Giambattista Valli, Carolina Herrera, and Emanuel Ungaro's couture atelier — debuted his third Brood collection on Monday at the Nicholas Robinson Gallery in New York. Sarier's perpetual play with sportif couture was a theme that resonated with a number of designers for Spring 2012, but his take involved avant-garde, inky dyed separates with parachute-inspired pulls. Lest he get caught up in a swell of zips, sheers, and shirrs, Sarier tailored many pieces around the waist and designed to create the appearance of "layering without layering." Spring 2012 also marks the designer's first stab at producing shoes in-house.
