TOUGH LUX

Knitwear is our shell. This seasons knits have been refined and toughened to both prepare and protect us from the challenges of an ever-changing world. A collaborative embrace of both strength and femininity, dense felted qualities play against glistening lightweights, whilst cut-outs give a feminine touch to tough silhouettes. Matt surfaces are contrasted with glistening metallics.

Key fabrications include soft felts, perforated transparencies, cut-outs and tough metallic embellishments that add shine to matt surfaces.

Colours drawn from this seasons COLLIDING palette, focusing on ROAN ROUGE and DARK SHADOW.

CRYSTALLISATION

Exploring crystal formations seen through the lens of a microscope, we focus on the jagged, encrusted, yet delicate forms produced as crystals grow. Constructed open-works and feminine pointelle stitches reflect the repetitive crystal patterns. Glass beads glisten throughout to add a luxurious shine to an array of feminine silhouettes.

Key fabrications include subtle tonal marls, uniform openwork, soft pointelle and high sparkle crystal.

Colours drawn from this seasons ENDURING palette, focusing on MAUVE SHADOWS, OPAL GRAY AND MINIMAL GRAY.
