“For the second collection, (I) analysed the concept of layers found in architecture and modern design. I was drawn to how fluid or structured/ rigid they looked through the materials used in the construction. I drew inspiration from the Design Museum in Holon by Ron Arad and “Mutated Panels” an art installation by Richard Meier.
In translating this into the collection, a contrast was created between structured vs fluid layers and achieved this through the use of fabrics with diff technical properties. (e.g., a stiff and rigid jersey fabric vs a fluid and soft silk cady fabric).
For colours a neutral palette was chosen to help convey that architectural feeling while adding a touch of colour to bring some warmth and pop to the collection, reflecting once again the notion of contrast fundamental to the brands philosophy. These elements help give a three dimensional and modern look and feel to the collection.” – Nana Brenu
