Into the Wild: Spring/Summer '17

Following on from the pre-collection’s island-arrival theme, in which a few fabled Victorian women found themselves on a deserted island, Spring/Summer ‘17 focuses on what they find when they get there. Our vibrant art-inspired collection celebrates the desire to immerse yourself in the wild, the perfect mood for the warm-weather months.



Using inspiration from the exotic surroundings depicted in Henri Rousseau’s jungle paintings (above), the collection exudes a distinct sense of voyage. The design team imagined the travellers delighted by their new botanical surroundings, as they uncover new scents, colours, animals and plants.

As an intarsia on 100% cashmere, knitwear pieces are imbued with primitive impressions of leopards, monkeys and abstract tropical leaves 

Paul Gauguin’s vibrant Tahiti paintings, such as the one above, also served as inspiration, while geometric shapes and Aztec-inspired multi-directional stripes echo the colours of the jungle.

Stripes were inspired by Ottavio Missoni's graphic artworks (1970).


Jungle-inspired tropical leaves were also reimagined as an intarsia on knitwear, and as a print on ready-to-wear.

In a melange of vibrant hues, the tropical palette includes bright sky blue, jungle green and passionflower pink, as well as softer tones of porcelain, lavender, and pistachio.

Much like Ana Strumpf's contemporary pop-art (above), shades of tropical hibiscus flowers, bright blue skies and the vivid green of fauna are some of the punchier hues from the SS17 colour palette.

A traditional stripes story sticks to classic navy and cream Breton stripes with red motifs and accents in an ultra-light merino knit as a contrast to the wilder pieces - something the fabled Victorian women would have brought in their suitcase from home.

Merino in an ultra-fine gauge makes a sophisticated summer statement, such as in the playsuit above.

Spanning the tropical and the traditional, Spring/Summer '17 has something for every type of journey.
