Entry Description

SS19
Sheer layering is a signature feature of our collections. This season we employ it throughout, building up depths of texture and colour over a mix of fabrics and bias binding emphasising the graphic lines of the pattern cutting.
Collection highlights include layered net jackets with hand made shoulder pads and free hand embroidered pieces playing with the idea of technology v mother nature with metallic flowering electrical components.
We personally pattern cut and drape each piece in our London studio, to fully explore and develop the vision for our label.
