Collection – SS18 - Memorable

The SS18 Collection, that is also the BA graduate collection of the designer, was inspired by childhood memories, especially the summers spent sailing on the seaside. The designer was aiming to transmit the naivety and carefreeness unique to a child, using fashion as a form of escapism.
The figurative elements all over the collection were initially painted by friends and family and then applied to the textiles quite literally. The collection is made entirely out of hand-painted silks such as satin, chiffon and organza as well as hessian, the highly eco-friendly and signature fabric of the brand.

About
Having both Luxembourgish and Dutch roots, Charlotte Kroon founded her brand in 2017, after graduating from Istituto Marangoni London with BA (Hons) in Fashion Design. She is now pursuing her MA in Fashion Collection and Marketing at Istituto Marangoni Florence. The brands identity is based on the unconventional use of textile, the element the designer has the most fun with. The Kroon signature textile is hessian, which is a highly eco-friendly. She likes to play with ‘ugly’ or plain and basic fabric by manipulating them with hand-painting, embroidery and patchwork.
