Los Angeles is in the midst of another Fashion Week, believe it or not. Yesterday afternoon, Racked sojourned to Downtown LA to take in the ethereal, bohemian designs of LA label Odylyne. Designer Stephanie Lampkin showed a selection of flowy maxi dresses, skirts, long button-downs and even some very full, blousy harem pants for adventurous sorts. In the show notes, Lampkin said that the collection was inspired by "our relationship with the universe," evidenced by a series of cosmic prints in shades of violet, coral and azure.
The show was held in a for-rent retail space just around the corner from the California Market Center, where models slowly descended a wooden staircase and carefully wound their way around three slim wooden pyramids—all to the tune of Canadian space fairy Grimes. Though she was focused on the sky, Lampkin didn't neglect desert gypsy types, also offering long lacy gowns paired with wide-brimmed black hats that would look stellar at Coachella.
