Autumn Winter 2013 capsule collection by Aina Beck

New York fashion designer Aina Beck experimented with foil printing to create the dappled metallic patterns in her latest capsule collection.

"It's been a long journey experimenting with textile foiling and screen printing to get it to this stage of accuracy and being able to develop the sharp, sleek, minimalistic look I was aiming for," Beck told Dezeen.

The foil-printing process leaves a disintegrating effect on translucent fabrics such as silk, while screen printing onto denser materials like denim creates blotchy, faded patterns.

The collection includes a metallic body suit made from foil wrapped around the torso and each limb, finished in a flourish over one shoulder.

A train of crumpled blue foil cascades out from the back of a half white, half silver skirt, and a foil-printed dress in the same colour is structured to create a triangular silhouette.

Sheer button-down shirts are detailed with opaque seams and hems formed by layering the fabric.

"I wanted to make a small capsule collection that focussed on the details and processes behind the textiles, as well as wearability," she said.

A graduate from Parsons The New School for Design in New York, Norwegian-born Beck chose to use blue, silver, grey and white as they are colours she usually wears, and handmade each garment herself.
