Art Gallery Nautical

Nautical themes get an update with an art gallery inspired aesthetic. Classic maritime motifs and colour-ways are reenergized with bold blocking, reconfigured stripes and plays with placement and proportion. Sportswear fabrications and athletic silhouettes enhance the fresh modernist appeal.

Sketchbook Scribbles

An artistic license is applied to womenswear through hand drawn scribbles and illustrative effects. Intricate linear patterns make an impact as printed garments are teamed with matching accessories for an all-over look while Monochrome threads and stitchwork introduce a crafty creative element.

From The Retro Archives

Womenswear goes retro as designers look back to the archives for inspiration. Seventies shades of tan, brown, orange and yellow are emboldened through abstract blockings, asymmetric paneling and accent stripes that lend dresses and separates a bold vintage vibe.
