WOMEN A/W 18
SUCIA ISLA REVERIE
AW2018 ventures into the winter waters of the San Juan Islands in the Pacific Northwest. The majestic set of islands provides the tone and inspiration for the new collection. The rich deep colors of the water set against the harsh landscape, the garments worn to sail these waters and the sharp contrast between the materials in the architecture sitting in harmony with the natural environment all play a role in setting the bases for the collection. The new A/W 18 collection entitled ‘Sucia Isla Reverie’ brings all of these elements together. The functional and the tailored mix and mingle: Loose oversized garments are overlaid and mixed with sharp constructed pieces. The silhouettes are neat, with layers of textures. The color palette is muted with accents of surprise pops: tones of electric emerald green, rust and mud are mixed with notes of strong gold, purples, mint and fluorescent. The mixture of patterns rounds out the collection by giving further depth and texture.
