The theme for Autumn / Winter 2011/2012 is being divided into three trends:

  • Innovative
  • Primal
  • Synergy

Each trend is then split into three transitional phases.

Phase 1 for late summer/early autumn collections

Phase 2 for autumn/early winter.

Phase 3 for high winter.


The race is on for new discoveries and solutions, with an accelerated sense of urgency as science is heralded as the saviour of a trouble stricken age. This contemporary trend marks an optimistic outlook towards a new existence, free of economic doom and gloom, while rediscovering the benefits of an intellectual approach. Keen observation and understanding enables us to learn from past events and push for a formulaic attitude to global advancement.


A renewed sense of spiritualism evokes an affinity with the natural world and the rediscovery of the instincts buried deep within us all. Many modern lifestyles have lead to a detachment from our environment, pushing us towards an empty, cold future and a despondent attitude towards the inevitable crisis of climate change. The rebirth of a new spiritual civilization suggests a resourceful and nomadic existence living close to nature and stimulates a drive for creating beauty and progress out of disaster.


A new era of pragmatism, simplicity and efficiency is dawning. As a fresh model for living is sought across the globe, and we see retaliation against decades of excess and heady capitalism, we look to the Nordic states for inspiration. Social cohesion is key to a peaceful future with diversity not only tolerated, but celebrated and utilized through group participation, both in the community and the workplace. The regeneration of urban spaces is on the agenda to harmonize with a contemporary and metropolitan way of living; innovative design meets a classic Scandinavian aesthetic for precision and minimalism that still retains a sense of warmth and homeliness.

The new alliance of art and nature, refined with rustic handmade and random effects. Cotton and shiny silks ” action painting” prints but also laces, embroideries, crafted surfaces and artisanal effects. Luminous clear natural colors, vibrant bronze and gold accents.. It’s a new vintage landscape that lands a surprising and pseudo fragility..


Luxury takes a stroll in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano.. All the allure of glamour of course, but full of humour and audacity, inspired by resolutely individualistic remixes of yesterday’s multicraft industries with treasures from the attic and grandma’s secret technique’s. Daring, liberated,energetic, creative.. ageless youth gives form and freshness to a luxury for all generations..


Between the Berlin of the twenties and the Paris of the eighties. Volumes are generous, there is a rigorous architecture, laces, jacquards and cutout effects feature black and ultra-white graphics. The archives of Mughlar and Montana are major references which set the tone for a sculpted, clean, structured silhoutte. Important to note that this should be a happy hunting ground for for really attractive shapewear..
