SPring / summer 2012 - ready to wear

We have taken inspiration from the social groups surrounding us, from the street gangs and their exaggerated, agressive silhouettes to the kaleidoscopic and edgy creative circles. We have split the collection in to 2 seperate ‘gangs’ to highlight pack mentality; each gang with opposing identities and clashing gang colours yet underlying similarities and ideologies are apparent. The feelings provoked when confronted with either of these two social groups is so extreme, the mixture of emotions ranges from fear to excitement to wonder. The thought that we could harness this raw intensity interested us greatly, and the experience of translating this powerful energy into our pieces was a challenging and highly appealing concept to us. We are having fun with this collection using everyday streetinspired silhouettes and symbolism against a brave, neon background. Us Vs Them Ready To wear range is a more diluted version of our couture collection: whilst still anchored by the same principals and aesthetic defiance as our couture range, featuring the same key silhouettes but we have simplified the detailing on the garments. This collection features bold clashing colours in vibrant, rich jewel tones supported by a neutral base with a sporty rebellious undertone. Fabrics include: neon, wet-look,hand painted and screen painted jerseys, metallic lycra, denim and suedette. All of our garments are individually numbered and from a limited edition run of only 250, with the exception of hand manipulated/painted pieces which are all completely unique.
