Autumn Winter 14

 

Danielle Romeril’s AW14 collection, is inspired by optical illusions and visual distortion. A 1960’s lenticular print, of a moon landing scene was the starting point for an exploration in extraordinary materials and surface details. Lenticular print is a technique that creates images that change or move as the image is viewed from different angles. These moving images are utilised in fabrics throughout the collection. American sculptor Tim Hawkinson’s work inspired abstracted eye appliqués that delicately catch and hold silk pleats. The collection takes a distorted dot motif that originated in the lenticular prints to decorate dresses, skirts and polo necks with a rubberised appliqué. Lace pockets are trimmed with these ‘moving plastics’ adding a street feel to elegant pleated dresses. Lenticular printed plastics are imbued with a certain nostalgia that pervades through the collection and into the lookbook as we take a trip back to our teenage bedroom.
