SPRING SUMMER 2018
A flower’s appeal is in its contradictions –
So delicate in form yet strong in fragrance,
So small in size yet big in beauty,
So short in life yet long on effect…
Ashley Isham found inspiration for his Spring Summer 2018 collection with the healing power of nature in the endless sunshine. Evoking an urban goddess that’s expressive, dynamic and spontaneous with the play of masculine and feminine, which didn’t get in the way of the prettiness. “We live in a moment, and fashion is made to make more fantastic what’s ordinary.”
The luxurious collection with its ethereal lightness, tenderness, whip-smart tailoring, communicated a new, relaxed silhouette in soft, natural fabrics like crepe, cotton, scuba and voile. It looks effortless, irresistible yet delicate. Lavishing the sophisticated city-born silhouettes with exotic elements of the craft while assimilating them into sophisticated sportswear add an alluring playfulness with the seductive qualities ……
The specially created draped, slashed and knotted pieces; in beautifully soft yet vibrant colour palettes, which ran from breathtaking saturated to pastel speaks of adventure and wonder, an endless voyage of discovery for Spring Summer 2018 where time takes its time….
Swathed in a seductive concoction, pastel goddess dresses in armour-like draped jersey add a gloss to normal life in the contemporary urban world with the exotic elements, which includes 2 bespoke super chic prints.
Artfully juxtaposing scale, textures with the whirlwind of glittering, shimmering beadworks, crystals and their lustrous sheen; it’s a sophisticated walk on the wild side with new fresh sensibilities and the new seductive, feminine aesthetic.
“It’s a new chapter, a new leaf,”
