Collection – Spring Summer 2014 - Weightless

When travelling a spiritual path; immersing your senses in the stillness of your surroundings, you reach a point of self-realisation. A moment of sudden clarity where all doubt is removed and the past becomes transparent; offering a clear and focussed direction for the future - A feeling of breathtaking weightlessness.

The Spring | Summer 2014 collection from Arjan B draws on this feeling of weightlessness. Inspired by both manmade and organic forms; from the depths of the ocean through oil-like silks, crystal laces and coral-inspired embroidery, to geometric, architectural prints offset with fine French copper lace. Colours are muted with subtle changes in tone; an evolutionary progression from pale peach to mint and bottle green: a natural growth in hue and tone.

The collection explores the idea of seeing clothing as lightweight architecture. It plays with empty space, transparency and weightless fineness. It softens architectural print through layering and misty effects, yet punctuates with fresh stripes, pearlescent pastel embellishment and new, hand-drawn geometrics.
