The materials are atypical, frayed, layered and reminiscent of lake vegetation, but with the idea that the creature grew on fabrics abandoned in the seabed and on the shores.
The nets take their inspiration from the structures of reeds, while the madras and the checks have marshy tones and the camouflages are reminiscent of the metal sedimentation on the banks of rivers.
The structures are full-bodied. In fact, we find felts and cloths enriched with cord trimmings and lichen embroidery; macro structures interwoven with inlaid ribbons, oversize bouclé on which even larger bouclé are woven for a super soft “musky” look.
Rustic fibres meet wool, cashmere and mohair, to create unorthodox basket weave textures.
Plastic effects and natural aspects alternate to evoke the mire of streams, while woolly weave and plastic cord accents characterise the reuse of materials for an ecological aesthetic: we actually find wet-look coatings, rubberised paddings, oiled cottons, glossy matelassé with wool braiding trimmings, uneven embroidery on macro meshes and polyurethanes printed with opaque inks.
Fabrics such as Harris tweed, Viyella, cavalry twill, whipcord, loden cloth and tweed are offered in lacustrine tones and exaggerated textures.
Incrustations on the lake nets inspire the shirt designs; the stylisations of algae and mosses envelop classic checked patterns, camouflage and stripes.
Jacquards are herbaceous, inspired by peat bogs and characterise silty marbling; velvets and velour invigorate sedimentary textures that seem to be preserved on the surface of the water.
