For our Autumn Winter 19 ready to wear collection, we took inspiration from the world of pottery and ceramics and in particular the work by the British studio potters Lucie Rie and Hans Coper.

Both potters were known for their modernist approach, bringing bright colours, natural textures and abstract form into their work; an experimental practise considered very ahead of their time.

The collection’s title ‘Perfect Imperfection’ comes from the idea that a small imperfection in pottery can be seen as a beautiful mistake and could have been intended by the potter to create a sense of authenticity and uniqueness. This is also a nod towards the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabia beauty of things modest and humble.

The fabrics used in the collection follow this theme, with details in the textures and structures of the yarns mimicking the surface composition and colours used by Coper and Rie.

Chocolate Brown is a key colour in the collection, adding a lifted sense of warmth. The choice of Paprika, Dark Ochre and Thyme Green used in knitwear and shirts, combine with highlight colours in the fabrics creating a balance with the richer hues of Navy, Chocolate and Charcoal.

The Autumn Winter collection has been designed to evoke heritage and nostalgia. The rich colours and warm handle of the fabrics emphasise this. The result is an effortless, easily styled and unique collection, with a sense of meaning and purpose.
