EDWARD CRUTCHLEY Autumn/Winter 2023

Published

on

Look One:
Round neck oversized coat and surcote* in lichen textured wool jacquard
Platform shoes in leather

*A surcote is an outer garment dating back to the Middle Ages. Commonly worn by soldiers on the battlefield, this long cloak or cape worn over metal armour would help to prevent heat stroke. Its name derives from French meaning “over the coat”. During the same period, ankle and floor-length dresses were common for women, often paired with a chemise or smock in fine linen. The duality of the longer silhouette—worn both on the battlefield and in the bedroom—reflects Crutchleys fluid approach to gender binaries.

Look Two:
Beanie
Silk taffeta coif*
Printed silk scarf
Organic cotton hoodie
Lichen textured wool jacquard coat
Bedford cord cotton v neck top and matching shorts
Leather platform boots

*Although it brings to mind the traditional habit of Catholic nuns, coifs date back to the 10th century and were originally not specific to religious dress. Here, Crutchley pairs the close-fitting cap with the more archetypal bucket hat or beanie.

Look Three:
Funnel neck parka in recycled polyester
Sweater dress in lichen texture angora blend jacquard
Elasticated waist maxi skirt in melange wool tailoring
Leather platform boots

Look Four:
Round neck long line jacket in wool mohair tailoring
Lichen texture angora blend knitted jacquard mini sweater and matching midi skirt
Leather platform boots

Look Five:
Bob* in recycled polyester with contrast under brim
Coif in recycled polyester
Oversized coat in melange wool
Blouson and elasticated pants in recycled polyester
Platform shoes in leather

*A hat with a narrow, downward-sloping brim that is more commonly known as a bucket hat.

Look Six:
Cartoon* print silk surcote
Merino rollneck sweater with plated lurex detailing
Elasticated waist maxi length skirt in wool mohair tailoring
Leather platform boots

*Each of the six characters that appear across the collection draw their inspiration from the curious woodcuts that feature in illustrator Richard Bretons The Drolatic Dreams of Pantagruel. Crutchley looked to the proto colouring book (released in 1565) and reimaged the figures in a more cartoonish style.

Look Seven:
Beanie
Coif in grey melange wool tailoring
Printed silk scarf
Blouson and drawstring low rise pants in Bedford cord
Leather platform boots

Look Eight:
Bob
Coif in silk taffeta
Oversized wool coat

Look Nine:
Beanie
Silk scarf
Cartoon jacquard blanket
Over shirt and elasticated waist shorts in cotton twill
Leather platform boots

Look Ten:

Look Twelve:
Fleece liripipe hat
Hand crocheted Clapdale* wool jumper
Elasticated waist recycled polyester pants
Leather platform boots

*Clapdale wool is a yarn spun from all breeds of sheep who live on two farms in Clapham, North Yorkshire. As part of the Clapdale Wool Project, Glencroft purchased fleeces from local farms within a five-mile radius. The wool was then scoured, processed and spun in a variety of local factories and mills in Yorkshire never travelling further than 50 miles from source.

Look Thirteen:
Beanie in technical wool blend
Coif in melange wool tailoring
Printed silk scarf
Oversized blouson, drawstring low rise pants and V-neck oversized coat in wool cartoon jacquard
Leather platform boots

Look Fourteen:

Leather platform boots

Look Fifteen:
Fleece liripipe hat
Coif in silk taffeta
Cartoon jacquard wrapped blanket
Drop lapel jacket, low rise drawstring pants and platform shoes in quartered* patchwork wool tailoring

*In heraldry, quartering is a method of joining several different coats of arms together in one single shield. The same method has been used to pair four traditional British suiting patterns: a Prince of Wales check, houndstooth, hopsack and gingham.

Look Sixteen:
Drop lapel jacket, oversized V-neck jacket, low-rise drawstring pants and platform shoes in quartered patchwork wool

Look Seventeen:
Bob
Coif in silk taffeta
Round neck jacket and mini skirt in quartered patchwork wool tailoring
Platform boots

Look Eighteen:
Bob in quartered patchwork
Coif in quartered patchwork taffeta
Overshirt and low-rise drawstring pants in crinkle taffeta
Leather platform boots

Look Nineteen:
Layered ruffle dress in silk taffeta
Leather platform boots

Look Twenty:
Bob in silk taffeta
Coif in silk taffeta
Track top and ruffle pants* in silk taffeta
Leather platform boots

*The ruffles of these pants were directly influenced by an all-white ensemble dated 1523 on Plate 61 of Matthaeus and Veit Konrad Schwarz of Augsburgs The Book of Clothes. The collection of illustrations (like early selfies) is considered one of the most extraordinary primary source documents in fashion history.|

Look Twenty-one:
Codpiece bra by GAHM*
Round neck oversized wool coat
Low rise drawstring pants in wool mohair tailoring
Leather platform boots

*GAHM was founded by multidisciplinary artist and designer Avleen Kaur in 2022. Kaurs work brings together the tradition of heavy jewellery adornment from her native India with tropes of S&M culture.

Look Twenty-two:
Bob
Coif in silk taffeta
Dropped shoulder biker jacket in waxed leather
Cashmere rib crop top
Cod piece thong in leather by GAHM
Leather platform boots

Look Twenty-three:
Coif in silk taffeta
Silk jersey lichen print backless dress and double drape taffeta belt dress by Dem the First*
Leather platform boots

*Cypriot born Dem the First is a BFC scholar and final year womenswear student at Central Saint Martins. In 2022 Crutchley met the designer through a BFC initiative and was impressed with his talent for drape. I have never really worked with a designer in this way before. Edward pushed and allowed me to evolve in my own way yet within his eutopia. The process has been so full of trust and freedom that it gave me equal pleasure as when I am making things for myself,’ Dem says.

Look Twenty-four:
Coif in silk taffeta
Jersey trained dress and taffeta draped coat by Dem the First
Leather platform boots

‘Orifice’ by STUDIO_ edwardlorenz

For the third site-and-time-specific olfactory artwork presented alongside Edward Crutchley’s collection, ORIFICE is an expansion of the themes from Autumn/Winter 2023: the study of hardness and softness, of darkness and light, and of the early Medieval period.

There are two distinct scent profiles to this work, two significantly different experiences that clash, harking back to the dualities present in Crutchley’s work: the sacred and the profane, the gauche and the urbane.

Part one is built around orris — a raw material used frequently in old perfumery and still used in trace amounts in the most luxurious perfumes. It takes at least 7 years to produce 1kg: 3 years to grow the bulb of the Iris germanica underground, and 4 years to age and ferment it to its distinctive lipstick-like smell.

Part two is built around oud — a historically Eastern and Middle Eastern material used in perfumery that has now only come into fashion in the West. Another extremely labour and time intensive material, oud is a resinous exude from a small pairing of species of trees that are the result of an immune response to a fungal infection. The best ouds take at minimum 30 years to age within a tree.

Alevì – Collezione F/W 24-25

Published

on

Collezione dallo stile senza tempo, in cui femminilità, linee seducenti, design pulito e raffinato ne sono i tratti distintivi.

La palette cromatica si tinge di colori chiari ed invernali insieme a tonalità più da sera come rosso intenso, rouge noir, nero, ebony e colori vibranti metallici. I materiali evocano un’allure sofisticata con rasi lucenti, pelli specchiate e verniciate, vitelli, nappe morbide e stretch, camosci.

L’iconica gabbia di mignon viene presentata in modelli Carry-over in versione “timeless”, specchiata e verniciata; riproposta poi in aspetto completamente nuovo, contemporaneo, ricercato, con gabbia di listini in nappa imbottita creando effetti di rilievo e tridimensionalità. Con un look più invernale, seducente e d’impatto vengono proposti sandali e mule aperte, e le rispettive versioni a punta chiusa con aggiunta di stivaletti dall’effetto calza aderente.

Decolletè, sandali e tronchetti a stiletto con punta sfilata si accostano a stivali in zeppa con diverse altezze di gambale; l’iconico stivaletto LOVE dall’eleganza e la versatilità d’uso proposto su differenti altezze di tacco e pellami che avvolgono il piede come un guanto. Introdotti nuovi tacchi ad altezza ridotta su stivaletti avvolgenti in nappa stretch e su ballerine sfilate con cinturini alla caviglia o a T, per una nuova portabilità più quotidiana senza perdere però l’eleganza e il fascino innato del brand.

Intramontabili e iconici rimangono i modelli di sandali e decolletè con gabbie di listini e cinturini in raso, impreziositi da strass color crystal o dalle tinte sofisticate.

La collezione per questa stagione si ispira ad un’atmosfera soft-rock, in cui diventano elementi distintivi gli accessori gioiello a piercing e le borchie diamantate che ricoprono zeppe e tacchi, impreziosendo stivali, ballerine, sandali e slingback, declinati in vari materiali ma in unica versione total black, per un look sensuale, di carattere.

THEUNISSEN FW24 collection

Published

on

With 27 looks, the THEUNISSEN FW24 collection continues to explore the image of a liberated woman through strong, entirely monochrome looks. This season, Belgian designer Ariane Theunissen emphasized cut and volume, revealing the power of her silhouettes.

The play of transparency, combined with sculptural cuts, emphasize body shapes and are contrasted by the presence of more surprising accessories such as XXL fur hats.

The designer’s aim with this collection is to appropriate the clichés of a sometimes austere bourgeoisie, and play with them, by placing more daring garments revealing feminine curves.

Presented at the Palais de Tokyo, the THEUNISSEN FW24 collection remains faithful to the brand’s refined, sensual image, while bringing a breath of modernity to women’s ready-to-wear.

MFW – SportMax F/W2024 “CAMERA OBSCURA”

Published

on

Il buio di un luogo sospeso. Di uno spazio in cui ogni immagine conquista una nuova visione. Dove la fantasia corre, sperimenta, imprime, danza. Luci rosse, sogno o realtà?
Clic.

Nell’atmosfera di “Camera Obscura”, celebre album della cantante Nico, la collezione Sportmax Fall-Winter 2024 rinasce attraverso il suo sguardo. Un immaginario descritto dal poeta Gerard Malanga, assistente di Andy Warhol: “Che ci sia o no un mistero, quegli occhi, con l’enigma della loro assenza da ciò che li circonda, eclissano la perfezione dei lineamenti e della forma per aggiungere grande magnetismo”.
Potente è anche il magnetismo musicale di icone anni Ottanta come Nico e Grace Jones, Debbie Harry, Annie Lennox o Siouxsie Sioux. Donne di grande personalità, celebrate con stampe ispirate alle cover di dischi che decorano camicie, abiti, giacche e maglieria. Una visione futuristica delinea silhouette allungate dalle spalle scolpite e punti vita definiti da giochi di layering, con cinture ed effetti materici a contrasto.
Capispalla over si alternano a giacche sartoriali, cappotti ultra slim e mini cappe in maglia: da sovrapporre o da indossare sole, ponendo ancora una volta il punto vita in primo piano.
Un corpo esaltato con la determinazione di muse à la Helmut Newton. Dove abiti e giacche effetto bustier guardano al mondo della corsetteria con sofisticate geometrie, giochi di imbottiture e crinoline.
In quest’armonia cromatica, le sfumature del nero, del grigio mélange e del navy blu incontrano tocchi di rosso, royal blu, bianco e nude. Come in “Blade Runner”, la rigorosa sensualità di una nuova Rachel risuona in un passato che guarda al futuro, fra abbinamenti di tessuti tech e sartoriali, vernici e dettagli in PVC.
E se Lou Reed dedicò il brano “Femme Fatale” alla stessa Nico, oggi sono boleri e abiti dalle forme aderenti a vestire questa “Venus in Furs”. Una femminilità resa glamorous da capi con frange di lurex o con movimentate trasparenze sovrapposte. Ma anche con giochi di macro-pieghe ispirate alle tecniche origami.
In questo mondo di contaminazioni culturali, shorts da pugile in tessuto tecnico o in pelle nera, con camicia abbinata, evocano un più sportivo stile Buffalo: una controcultura creata negli anni Ottanta ispirata alle tradizioni sartoriali americane e inglesi.
Declinato in short-culottes o su pantaloni dal volume arrotondato o su camicie con cravattino in vernice effetto Cow Boy.
Come accessori, scarpe Mary Jane con punte arrotondate addolciscono la silhouette, mentre il più classico camperos si intravede dai pantaloni. Nel nuovo secchiello rigido in vernice, dal manico in metallo, si nasconde un piccolo specchio dal tocco vintage.

La musica “L’insonnia delle rondini” è stata realizzata da Teho Teardo.
