PRIMARY EXPLORERS

This AW 2013/14 collection is the outcome of an enduring and consistent research culminating into a sculptural and tailored series of garments. There is a certain dreaminess about the looks. The ‘heavy’ fabrics are firmly compressed and wrinkled, soaking up water and oxygen with a delicate skin of silk fabrics sticking to it. The models look like elemental travellers. They carry a curiosity and strangeness to them that makes them hard to localise. It is about structure and thin layers of time.
