SS10 New Dawn

‘As the light returns, the sky transforms to ethereal lilac dusk. Her armour becomes silver, her cheeks the colour of blossom. The now lucid waters awaken her to dawn'

New Dawn sees our AW09 muse 'The Samurai Princess' seeking purity in the moonwaters, symbolised by the collection’s transformation from dark monochromatic pieces, to lighter colours of silver, nudes and pastel. Certain beads and structures remain sharp and geometric, hinting at the danger behind the muse; whilst the addition of organic shapes and pastels offer a softer feminine feel to the collection. Materials used include dip-dyed fringing, silver-plated beads, semi-precious stones in pink sea-bamboo (an ethical alternative to coral), blue lace agate and rose quartz.
