Claire Oldman of Lola Is Beauty wrote our press/inspiration text again!
I send Claire "scenes from my head" videos, music, images and she somehow understands the collage and puts it all together so it can make sense. It's always great fun to work with Claire!
“Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker, wherever you're going I'm going your way. Two drifters, off to see the world, there’s such a lot of world to see…” – Moon River
The fall winter 10 collection is darkly romantic and a little mystical with a muted colour palette ; inspired by the snow-covered valleys and rich velvet details seen in Roman Polanski’s 1967 film “Fearless Vampire Killers”.
The heroine of Moon River is holed up in a mountain house made of wood - simple and honest, in a pristinely beautiful setting with snow and mountains all around. Sitting at the kitchen table with a fire going, tea and cake and a fat cat by her side, reflecting on the ocean voyages she’s taken and enjoying the peace and beauty of being in nature.
Her wardrobe reflects each place and moment: the sea represented by the Overboard coat, Siren Song dress, then the Homeward dress and the mountains, the Willow shirt, Juniper jacket and Snow and Honey dress. Fluid fabrics: chiffon, crepe, gabardine and jersey are mixed with solid pieces in wool, twill and velvet. The Gypsy Secret skirt and Darling dress in floral print chiffon on a black background stand out as the dreamiest looks, completing the collection.
