Discover our new collection, in collaboration with analogue photographer Antonio Curcetti

The second chapter in our Autumn Winter 16 story, inspired by the two dimensional views through the lens of a camera, is a collaboration with Italian photographer Antonio Curcetti. By blending his analogue photos of Kew Gardens with our in-house artist’s hand-painted techniques, he has created a stunning set of printed artworks, exclusive to our womenswear collection. Curcetti's trademark technique is double exposure – taking multiple shots on the same frame with his 1965 Polaroid camera to create one picture with a layered effect.

A 7-piece collection, every design is cut from lustrous silk and colours play a regal role with tonal shades or royal blue and rich red. An organza overlaid jersey top. A modern funnel neckline on a fitted dress. Contemporary culottes, relaxed kimono silhouettes, structured pencil skirts. Works of art you can wear…

Antonio also expresses his photography through music animation. Here is part of a forty minute visual he created for band Astral Pattern. The idea was to focus on colours and the details of their hands across keyboards as an artistic approach to engage with their audience.

We've also worked with Antonio to create a limited-edition collaboration to treasure. With no two prints alike, this blouse is one of only 50 and comes with a specially commissioned print. Exclusive to four stores*, it's truly unique.
