Spring 2014

Polished and playful, opposites meet to create an eclectic mix of strong versus feminine elements.

Snakeskin jacquard, wild flowers, whimsical hearts, lips and matchstick patterns are combined in a palette of pale chamomile, rose pink, lipstick red and monochrome tones.

A woven python print jacquard coat in golden tan is worn with wild flower duchesse shorts. An oversized bomber jacket with two way metal zip over a matte knit bandeau and mini shorts with sporty side slits.

A print of scattered lips and hearts in lipstick red and white or monochrome is framed with natural canvas. Enlarged in scale, the patterns become embossed lace thread work in pops of color on cotton duchesse for a bold graphic effect.   A rose dress is embroidered with diamond and threadwork motifs in a gentle nod to surrealism.

Cocktail is playful in a matchstick print top and athletic shorts. Soft duchesse is gently gathered by hand creating exaggerated volume in a black strapless bustier or a rose mini dress.  Minimal eveningwear columns are enhanced with shaped hemlines.  Necklines are graphic with a curved frame motif tracing the outline of the shoulders.

Accessories continue to play on the hard and soft theme. Slip on ballerinas flattened at the back or high with a mirrored half cylinder heel inlayed with sustainable veneer and are also worked as sandals in colors of cement, tank, rose, silver and snake. The Beckett bag is offered this season in new shapes and sizes including a slouchy backpack. Color combinations to compliment the collection include rose with hot pink made of an eco-faux nappa with either linen or leopard print raffia and in striking silver metallic.

Sustainability is featured across the collection including sustainable wool and wood, organic fabrics, biodegradable rubber soles and eco-faux nappa, with the coating made of over 50% vegetable oil.
