Representing inner strength, change, peace and individuality, the symbolism of the dahlia flower is what the Autumn/Winter ’21 collection aims to embody. The magnificent way in which the petals are arranged in concentric circles, creating a rounded silhouette, is echoed in the forms and manipulation techniques seen throughout the collection. Along with the dahlia, the Japanese kimono has informed the construction of certain garments. Organic cottons, silks and wools are juxtaposed with rich sequins and velvet embellishments in a moody, feminine palette of black, navy and blush.
