TEXTURES TOLD

Closet London's TEXTURES TOLD 'Style Story' for Autumn 2018 is a modern take on the original 40s Land girl. A strong and confident woman who is as capable as she is pretty.  Set against fields of wheat, she cycles an old-fashioned bicycle dressed in brogues and a pretty dress.

The fabrics used in this collection often have a surface texture; waffle, tweed, velvet and rib in olive green, navy and lime popped with a complimentary flash of a vibrant Pink. There are Heritage checks and tweeds reinterpreted as a Print. It’s a playful twist on the idea of the textures, which at times aren’t even there but implied by the print instead. Classic dress styles are given a modernised twist with frill sleeves and neck ties. Although the Collection has a nostalgic quality, it is current with midi skirt lengths, wide leg trousers and asymmetric details.
