Behind the collection | AW16

Our new Autumn collection is here! We’re so excited to share with you our inspirations behind our beautiful new collection. Our designs for the Autumn season take inspiration from minimalist twentieth-century architectural style.  The colour palette and the organic forms used in the work of Le Corbusier and the monochromatic structural qualities of Mies van der Rohe’s work inform the designs throughout the season.     We have focused on simplicity through using clean lines and with a pure use of colour at the beginning of the season. The structure of the garments refer to the lines used in modern architecture with sculptured silhouettes and curved forms. Textural, weather-worn exteriors are the inspiration for print. Building materials such as concrete, steel and brick inspired the colour palette of the collection, and offer texture to surfaces. Les 100 Ciels’ luxurious cashmere features at the heart of every collection and this season this beautiful yarn is given a multi-dimensional effect by varying weights and layering. We hope that you enjoy wearing our new collection! Shop new arrivals here.
