Punk is not dead. It’s Organic. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection was birthed by two unique thought processes, working together under the influence of one prominent inspiration; Nature. Modern and minimal silhouettes were combined with design elements that were a bit rough and rugged through the use of natural fabrics, patchwork, shredding, unusual patternmaking , and natural dye techniques.
The purpose of this collection is to re-inject art, quality and longevity back into clothing; important characteristics that seem to be devalued and diluted by the dominating force of fast fashion.
Organic punk is about women returning to the root of who they really are. It is about the woman reassessing and reconstructing her sense of self while taking the initiative to live by her own rules, and doing what empowers her as an individual. It is this kind of progressive and forward thinking that we wanted to display within each piece of the collection.
