Inspiration

Spring 2019

This season is a homage to the trailblazing women who competed shoulder to shoulder with men on the legendary racing tracks of the Le Mans, Monaco and Broadlands in the Thirties and Forties. Adding glamour and style amongst the oil and grime of motor racing, but most importantly defying convention to not only drive racing cars but compete with men on equal terms.

Suiting is louche and modern with lightly structured double-breasted jackets and wide leg trousers. A variety of separates offer a mix and match assortment; fluid high waisted trousers, tie shirts cinched at the waist and satin back crepe co-ords designed to be worn together, but work equally well apart.

The exploration of metamorphosis and symmetry by the 20th century artist M C Escher, combined with feminine florals and graphic motifs borrowed from the tracks and vehicles that raced on them provide the framework for the prints and embroideries this season. Tessellated checks and stars, tyre treads and arrows in varying scales and mediums morph seamlessly into delicate meadow flowers; a playful interpretation of masculine and feminine elements.
