Antoni and Alison New Work SS13 collection


I was happy get an invite to this show as I really enjoyed their collection last season.

I must admit I got the wrong end of the stick when I read the name of the collection

NEW WORK

"Great I need to update my work image" I thought thinking I was going to see a work wear inspired collection

LOL silly rabbit

The name of the collection was influenced by the designers celebrating their 25th anniversary and their desire to continue coming up with innovative creative pieces or "New Work"

The collection was a great start to a gloomy Friday morning.

Guests were treated to a drum band which played throughout the show which consisted of

Shift dresses in various lengths and styles floating down the catwalk
 
adorned with mouth watering colourful prints all hand painted in the following mediums:
 

Painted brush marks

Mixed acrylics

Ink drawings

Dark abstracts

Spray can gestures

Charcoal smudges on cartridge paper

sharp HB pencil lines

Necessary sparkle and gold leaf

Black felt tip pen


I absolutely loved this collection as I found it to be very wearable and the colours fun and interesting

For their actual birthday, Friday 19th October 2012 the Victoria Albert Museum have asked Antoni and Alison to give a one off lecture about their work. This will be the only time that they offer an explanation about their work so I hope I am able to attend.
