Logan Neitzel continues to refine his vision with his “Recluse Collection,” the Spring 2012 ready-to-wear. Past collections have mixed leathers, feathers, silks and wools, and the mix of textures continues with the addition of macramé and burnt-out silk dresses. “Confident, artistic, not afraid to take risks,” that is how Logan describes the women that inspired the Recluse style, and how many would describe the designer himself.
A leather black dress featured both ruching and burnouts, to make a look that was tailored and edgy; this could describe the collection as a whole. Macramé dresses go from the red carpet to a rock concert. Peach Shorts go from garden party to gallery opening. Logan Neitzel has created looks that downtown girls will covet.
