S/S 17 Collection

A/W 16 Collection

S ophisticated classics and simple basics focus on everyday comfort, utilising optimum blend yarns and innovative finishing, taking casual and formalwear fabrics to a premium level.

Fabric textures and finishes move between the smooth and soft textured, the technical and sensuous. Dimensional crepe has a pleasing tactile,refined satin, and viscose have a luxurious character, and silky-smooth mercerised cottons are key, along performance polyesters and stretch elastanes .

A gently casual soft tailoring is evoked trough paper-touch, softly fabrics. Cotton blends with modal, viscose and polyamide offer a softer hand-feel with a more technical and mouldable quality.


Colour

S/S 17 sees a return to a romantic palette of whisper-light pastels.

A minimal palette of both neutral and warm, unusual tones that add a sophisticated vibe to the summer season.

Also, a palette of saturated brights, primary pops as tomato red, sunshine yellow and cobalt blue create an energetic appeal, while midnight blacks and chalky whites in sumptuous materials touch on a luxurious mood.

Fabrics with a jersey touch-look feel, in plain or melange are still a very important element in our collection.

Micro-padded and dimensional surfaces, fine double-fabrics.

Yarns are mainly natural, with cotton being the main fibre, followed by linen and rayon, rustic summer tweeds.

Indigo is also a predominant look.

Pattern

Bold, graphic prints also continue but emerge in the form of spliced stripes and pattern primary-bright colour blocking, for a sporty, graphic look.

Mid to large-scale stripes are key, madras plaid and over-checks, along with the classic gingham checks.

Pinstriped suitings break away from the conservative business look, creating fresh shapes with a feminine sensitivity. Fine vertical stripes dominate, with navy and black sartorial updated using broken stripe designs and micro-macro stripe combinations,

Shadow prints or extra-weft dobby patterns utilise monochrome shading to caste subtle impressions of dimensional embossing.

Cotton, silk and linen blends are refreshed with irregular, stitch-effect dobby stripes offering a pretty everyday look.
