Gen Art San Francisco Fresh Faces in Fashion | GENES

October 17th, 2005

Background on GENES: Combine
San Francisco native Genes Sotto with former Zang Toi assistant
designer Fleur Lidwine-Louis and what you get is GENES. The clothing

woman in mind.

Key Takeaways: This
collection, created by Genes Sotto and Fleur Lidwine-Louis, was a bit
retro, a bit classic, a bit urban, and rather youthful all at the same
time. Classic shapes make Genes highly wearable, while colorblock
designs evoke an element of retro youthfulness.

 
Color Palette: Canary yellow, teal, turquoise and gold.


Silhouettes:

flatteringly on models in the form of circle skirts, ruched dresses and
blouson tops.
