Collection – LOOKBOOK 7/AW18-19

The successive inspiration for the collection came from the style icon and cult singer Sade, while the hints of the male flamenco dancer’s costumes and elements of the 80’s wardrobe brought August’s signature androgynous look. The main goal in the design process was to enrich the collection with bolder volumes, usage of print and expanded fabric assortment. Through playful visuals, the new collection combines temperamental South with Nordic cool.

The range of fabrics used in the collection has been expanded by a luxurious blend of organic cotton, silk and hemp. Also, season-appropriate wool in different textures, including skin-friendly and soft merino wool has been incorporated, while the 80’s flare comes through from the new denim that has been made of organic cotton.

The brand continues to use unique and carefully chosen sustainable fabrics, and all the items have been designed and produced in Estonia
