Coming Attraction: Obsidian Launches the CONTROL Collection

[click on image for larger version]

Written By: Nani Hapa—Up-and-coming designer Isoken Obsidian has a stunning new Spring/Summer 2010 collection, CONTROL, that focuses on cocktail dresses with intricate craftsmanship and whimsical flourishes. CONTROL is a reference to the film noir genre, particularly Rita Hayworth, the femme fatale of the time—graceful, ultra-feminine and irresistible. True to inspiration, the eye-catching campaign introducing the collection has been creatively themed as movie posters with credits for the team behind the looks to boot. Designer Obsidian commented, "I don’t like to belabor references, but I believe ultimately, every woman wants to be in control of her image and you can be powerful, and in control without losing your femininity—simple but superb."

The CONTROL by Obsidian Ready-to-wear Collection can be bought exclusively from the Obsidian website (the full site is launching—or to be more appropriate, "coming to a computer near you"—on May 25, 2010). There will also be a pop-up store in collaboration with Le Petit Marche in June 2010.
