Alberobello – Womenswear Inspired by a Quaint Italian Town
View recent Thursday Sunday Collections on Australian Fashion Review Blog.
Although ‘Thursday Sunday’ have only been around since 2009, the brand has already gained itself a reputation for creating clean and classic collections that are 100% Australian-made using organic and natural fibres. This reputation is further solidified with their Spring/Summer 2011-2012 collection, entitled ‘Alberobello’ – a collection inspired by the quaint Italian town of the same name, which is famous for its romantic whitewashed houses with conical roofs that give the city a unique character, unlike any other in Europe.
Alberobello’s stunning landscapes and rich architecture are translated into the pieces of the collection – the stretch bamboo knits channel the interlocking tiles of the conical roofed houses and the cobblestone streets are represented with the intricately woven linens. Hand woven chunky knits, simple shift dresses and cocoon-sleeved jackets also feature in the Summer offering in the collection’s delicate neutral colour palette, which is interspersed with pops of rich plum and dark navy.
Thursday Sunday has once again created a versatile and functional collection that will suit a multitude of styles and occasions. Key pieces in the collection include a exquisitely draped shift dress; a subtle two-tone dress with a relaxed silhouette that channels the look of weathered limestone; a trans-seasonal navy-high waisted cotton trouser with a relaxed cut; and a denim shift dress with zip front that is elegant in its simplicity. As ever all pieces of the collection are Australian made with natural fibres.
So without further ado, we present the Spring/Summer 2011-2012 collection from Thursday Sunday…Enjoy!
