Collection: AW2011 – ‘beware, wear’
Words by ksubi
beware, wear challenges current perception on popular culture and trends, examining the idea of structure, regimented throughout culture and society as seen in the alleyways of the metropolis, is flanked by urban decay. beware, wear becomes the wearer’s camouflage, explored through print and fabrication ensuring patent form.
Experimenting with differing tactile and visual elements, the idea of ‘merging’ by focusing on internal detailing from reversed fabrics to external seams and layering, which then become the predominant garment features. These deconstructed textures further reinforce the idea of creating camouflage.
The colour palette for the season draws from the elements. From ash to slate, smoke to jet, a sombre yet sophisticated palette is then lifted through moss, khaki and deep plum. Red is rusted and bloody in beware, wear complimented by soft sand and fresh neutrals.
