The clothing we choose can take on a symbolic meaning, whether we know it or not. The shirt that we always gravitate to and the bracelet that we can’t help but wear everyday. These are the pieces that go beyond style or adornment and start to cross into the realm of meaning and emotions. Here we break down the collection that we’ve brought into the shop this week and visually communicate the feeling each piece evokes in us.
Infinite Universe ‘Hieroglyphs’ Tee. The first look was translated from the literal textures found within the desert environment. Sands and hieroglyphics mask this look as they do in most Egyptian deserts.
Something Else Tassel Cardigan. Subtle nods to structural elements found within this garment inspired the statuesque and repetitive background. It was important to recognize the complex constructed qualities that pyramids and the like are composed of.
Deja Vu Tassel Scarf. This look was heavily influenced by the idea of mirages and the almost bi-polar weather that surfaces as day morphs into night. Suddenly covering up for warmth is necessity as the cold creeps over.
Gypsy Junkies ‘Wildheart’ Bowler Blouse. This look exemplifies the heat and brightness found within the desert. It was important to connect these two ideas while keeping in mind accessories that lent a practical defense against such climates.
Aten Pendant Necklace. This accessory references the cultural history of Egypt’s Past, while providing a new and current perspective dually. Embellishment played a huge role in Egypt’s culture, just as it does presently.
