Autumn/Winter ’17 Presentation
Scouts and Girl Guides pack your bags, it’s off to CAMP MIRA in your winter glad rags. Adventures abound in a forest dreamscape, as rainbow soldiers play games by the lake…
Enter my Moonrise Kingdom with a twist in its tale, where endings are happy and parties prevail: woodland creatures sprout front and back, and spectral neon colours swirl and refract.
For Autumn/Winter ’17 work and play entwined, as a relaxed silhouettes met embellished utility garments in striped down jackets, embroidered military coats, patched bomber skirts, and giant cape sweaters.
Inspired by the quirky scout culture of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, embellished uniforms were reworked in chic form. Worn-in, borrowed-from-the-boys denim intermingled with classic turtlenecks finished with floating ribbon ties, while a whirlwind of rainbow swirls and harlequin patchworks met playful embroidery and scout patches proclaiming odes to camp culture and the great outdoors. Nostalgic whimsy found its stride in arts-and-crafts-inspired suede tassels, dress-up army medallions, iridescent sequins, intarsia fur, and glitter techniques–its childlike effect countered with the boyish shapes of ‘Marshmallow Lovers’ turtlenecks, ‘Eagles Dance Club’ varsity cardigans, and ‘Forever or Never’ puffer jackets.
