Summer 2017 Collection Preview
The Summer ’17 collection was motivated by a sense of retreat away from a world of excess.
1966 saw the formation of The Hare Krishna movement in New York, a time of extreme social change and struggle. The opportunity of an alternative state of mind and lifestyle was embraced by those willing to follow strict purposes and principles. Whilst I am no follower of The Hare Krishna movement, the value in following a exact set of principals is something I try to follow both in my work and also my personal life.
Summer ‘17 presents a sophisticated ease and flow by way of fabrications and colour and feels spiritual in its essence. Interchangeable tones of sunset, sunrise and carob all carefully chosen for their warmth and to be worn together, textural blacks and Bengal navy striped cut through the warm tones. Fluid washed silk stripes fabrics add movement and drape and many styles have carefully positioned sash ties for the most flattering silhouettes.
Key looks in the collection for me are the Marcello pant, a newer lightweight linen and viscose balloon pant – paired with the Tulio narrow grey silk stripe sash tie top. The Benito side tie full circle skirt teamed with a simple white shirt (Alonso) and the Nin Japanese double-faced Japanese one piece over our classic silk point collar shirt.
