The nostalgia of holidays and the sense of freedom and lightness they provide have informed the collection.
The islands of Greece have inspired both print and fabric. Floor tiles become shirts in a variety of styles whilst lightweight summer ready linen and cotton poplin add an airiness throughout the range. Silhouettes and fabrication feel relaxed and ready to be lived in, tailoring is evolved and casually influenced, yet garments still utilise expert construction techniques and hand finishing to shift a focus toward comfort and versatility for the wearer. Luxury yarns are reflected playfully throughout knitwear and the inclusion of new products adds to the adaptability of the collection.
This sense of approachability for the season brings a refined playfulness to the brand, in keeping with its history, whilst developing a consistent handwriting that is recognisable as Duchamp.
“If a shadow is a two-dimensional projection of the three-dimensional world, then the three-dimensional world as we know it is the projection of the four-dimensional Universe.”
- Marcel Duchamp
Dappled light sprawls across the sun baked tiles, hot underfoot. The cerulean hues of the sky above reminiscent of the beautiful pantile floors of the holiday dwellings from childhood.
