Diverse global references converge in the exploration for textiles direction for SS18. Pattern and textures evoke a sense of place and culture, enriched by summer palette. There is subtle bohemian romantic vibe to the collection, as fresh spirited craft direction takes over the mood. Gentle frills, tiered layers, reminiscent of Victorian dress code, or historical undergarments and nightwear for extra loose detailed shapes and Broderie Anglie references, chanelise a feminine dreamy mood.
