In this collection, we have tried to translate and convey non-conventional beauty.
The attire references the op-art icon Victor Vasarely. Not only a great democratiser of the arts, Vasarely had a clear understanding of the colour/surface perception relationship, which features in the collection’s prints, silhouettes and colours.
There is an application of complexity upon simplicity, of complex structure upon minimal forms. This is evidenced in the unfolded shorts front simulating a skirt, or the structured jacket with optical prints creating the appearance of a vest over a pair of pants.
Clashing geometric prints, perspective and perception are key in generating optical illusions. We have developed a method of geometric abstraction, working with various forms and colours.
The collection also maintains a contemporary street edge, with prints and silhouettes giving a nod to traditional garments including oversized bomber jackets, short skirts, tracksuit pants and a hooded short sleeve jacket.
