Stephanie Savoury 2016

by Stephanie Savoury

The theme of this womenswear collection is inspired by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, a cataclysmic event that destroyed the city and people of Pompeii.

The inspiration for the jacket silhouette came from the concept of the distorted, oversized casts that covered the bodies, keeping the remains hidden and protected.

The remaining pieces in the collection (dresses, tops and trousers) represent the fluidity and intense colours of the molten lava, that is continuously overlapping its previous layer. This is achieved by the use of elegant fabrics such as silk satins and vibrant digitally printed chiffon’s, depicting the flowing movement of the beautiful molten lava.
