The Fall collection is inspired by Wabi Sabi, the aesthetic philosophy centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. This worldview is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.”
The fabrics in this collection have a warm hand and are 100% cotton. They include a soft double gauze, cotton sateen, chambray, and yarn-dyed wovens inspired by Japanese kimonos. Block printing embodies the concept of Wabi Sabi, inspiring us to embrace the ‘mistakes’ that happen in a process centered on artisan hand-work; patterns depict cloud-like swirls and floral motifs inspired by the art of Ikebana floral arranging. Embroideries employ rustic techniques and feature imagery of leaves and tassel-like shapes inspired by ancient temples and bending trees. Sweaters are knit from the fleece of baby Alpaca in Peru, accented with heathered yarns, unusual knitting stitches, and fringe elements.
