reminiscence

A collection of soft handloom cottons, signature natural dye prints and feminine silhouettes, the Reminiscence collection is inspired by memories and the feelings we attach to our memories, whether negative or positive.

The concept for the SS18 collection draws inspiration from my own childhood memory of growing up with grandparents who worked as cane growers. From riding around on tractors with my grandfather to drinking tea with my grandmother, the collection is inspired by their life and what they built together.

Soft floating silhouettes juxtaposed against the masculinity of the cane farm; a location that is both dear to me and my grandparents, a place that might not be around for too much longer and will become only a memory of what was before.

memories are gifts

from moments past

positive or negative

the desire to return

singing soft lullabies

of laughter and smiles

or a heavy heart

filled with sorrow

masculine and feminine

the energies intertwine

your being takes shape

over and over again
