NZFW2015 | Kate Sylvester AW16 ‘a Muse’

Designer:  Kate Sylvester

Title of Show:  a Muse

Season:  Autumn/Winter 2016

Inspiration for the Collection: In a blurb Sylvester lists names, names whom are creative muses that have either influence her creativity or were great people whom found inspirations through others (the same way she did). “A great muse inspires, challenges and infatuates an artist. Kate Sylvester’s Autumn Winter 2016 collection celebrates the muse in all her complexity, strength, style beauty and eccentricity”.

Fabric:  Colours in her collection are peach, purples, blue, greens, tan, grey, cream and black. Textures seen in her collection were leather like, thick woolly fabrics, hairy fabrics and lace. Patterns seen were purple and green flora, vertical and horizontal stripes, dots of millefiori prints arranged to resemble polka dots, checkered fabrics.

Aesthetics/Style of Clothing:  Flexible range. It is smart and can be casual, wear for work and after work drinks. Designed with comfort in mind.

Atmosphere:  Avant Garde. Down the end of the runway stood an abstraction of lines and curves which formed a group of posing figures. The sculpture reminded me of Picasso’s first cubist painting of women titled Les demoiselles d’Avignon. The sculpture seemed to foreshadow a collection of new, unusual and experimental ideas.
