Following our men’s and pre-Fall collections earlier this year, the collection is the crescendo in a trilogy of collections inspired by David Lynch’s oeuvre. Working with him on the set design and music for this show, we find ourselves drawn into the head of the creator, searching for revenge, strange and mysterious with equal candor.
Our silhouette holds contrasts in volume, and everything is amplified. Lean and tall or high-waisted and exaggerated, the structure remains resolutely, ultra-feminine. Collars are reinterpreted, blown up and tied around the waist as nonchalantly and intimately as the appropriation of a mans coat. Tool creatures, printed and embroidered onto jackets, skirts and pants come in woods, metals and perspex. tailored suits are quilted with down. Fox fur coats in “wild lula lime”, “laura lilac” and “midnight Dorothy” transform with detachable paneling. Lacquered twill jackets in flame inject fire colors to the palette. Skirts and dresses with shaved kangaroo are paired and layered with cross coats and embroidered and shredded organza. Foiled mohair grosgrain ribbons appear as belts and as inserts on trousers. Prints this season come in warped versions of habitual vistas, the David Lynch herring-bone flooring and reflections of a mountain in shattered glass. a layered organza adds a 3-d effect to skirts and tops. sweaters feature high definition tryptic embroidery and metallic foiling.
For accessories we were inspired by a Northwestern American steelworker’s vestiary. The kalifornia is revisited as a tote for fall in knit, wool or printed quilted nylon.
