This season, charlie le mindu proposes a collection inspired by the seapunk or spacepunk movement. It is question of discovering a new world where man has not yet been, but which will be reachable and palpable in a near future.
The phosphorescent colours, super-natural, project the idea of a futurist perspective, without however neglecting references to modern technologies and also to techno music which captures the night and makes it a unique space.
Even if it echoes the will to work with empty space, weightlessness, forms drawn from levitation, the collection is called “stronger “ as the research and the work done with colour is intended to be both extreme and energetic
The treatment of the colours requires high level technical mastery, as it is necessary to work for several months in darkness and with blacklighting to obtain such luminous colours.
Hence the dual point of interest of this collection, the combination of the mastery of six different plaits and a complex use of embroidery, result in details which show themselves both in the dark with ultra-violet light and in the light of day
This range of shades, a high energy and highly coloured cameo ..offers in this way different levels of appreciation depending on the environment in which the viewer observes and imagines these floating objects.
The icosphere fall-winter 2014 collection is born from the creator julia smith, her british heritage and the brand’s futuristic concept. Urban , modern, functional. Inspiration like the icosphere is multi-faceted: The codes of military uniforms from the past, clothing worn to fight battles, to inspire leadership and conform to the body’s movement, transforming the 18th and 19th centuries into modernity using essential cuts and details with no superfluousness. Inspiration from the same historical period - the grace of poets in high-necked collar shirts and waistcoats, ties and stocks from the cavalry, also seen in the cut of the trousers as well as the jackets. Not forgetting haute jewellery in precious accessories, cufflinks closing this elegant silhouette in silver and gold. Knitwear returns to its source in aran-knited stitches, with a modern interpretation. Relief stitches inspired by military brandebourg-passementerie designs, symbolising the wearer and his grade. Urban–the monolith is the central graphic identity of icopshere, it extends into bands which are carved into jackets, trousers, knitwear. Extending into pleats in collars for suits and double collars in shirts. Sixties inspired thin ties and small collars, fine lapels and hand-made boots with nuances of colour in hand buffed finishes.
Lean silhouettes, short proportions, cuts adding volume in the most luxurious fabrics, wools (super 150s and 120s), wool/silk, modernity in wool stretch, flat fabrics to give structure to the forms. Finest cottons for shirts and swathes of cashmere in scarves, silk in ties and cummerbunds, pleated by hand.
Graphic colours; black, shades of grey – somber to light, white and military red. The collection combines a past literary style remembering keats and tennyson with a military influence embodying the future.
