Presenting a Sylvan Scene that emulates the perfection and chaos of nature’s enchanted realms, the Autumn Winter 2016/2017 collection is alive with cascading blossoms, laser-cut butterflies, dewy tulle sheaths and metallic dragonflies.
A renewed interpretation of a fantastical wilderness and its binaries, the collection pursues the intersection between dusk and dawn, the romantic and the mystique. Punctuated by laser cut taffeta forms, bold prints and bohemian mini skirts, Autumn Winter 2016/2017 is a fantasia redefining artistry and reinterpreting the eternal cycle of being.
From draped satins and floor-sweeping organza trains with voluminous frills, to shades of 70’s bohemia present in smocking, oversized hats, braiding and fringing; our woodlood muse is femininity in motion.
Kaleidoscopic and euphoric in tone, evergreen shades of flora and fauna are ruched and ornately embellished with the finest micro-beads, metallic barley stalks and feathers, intricate glass-beaded bumblebee and beetle brooches, unifying design and humanity’s earthly connection to nature.
