Set the scene: White plush furniture of abstract proportions surface from a bed of wild flowers, entwining vines emerge from doors that appear to lead to other worlds beyond the gallery space at the Elms Lesters Painting Rooms; an invitation to immerse in a curious dreamscape labyrinth.
Approaching the artful scene, delicately weaving through the romantic motif came the colour combinations of Deep Orchid, Plum, and Bordeaux, followed by a darker collection of ink blues and blacks.
Initially inspired by a 70’s Gothic romance novel, the mood for Three Floor AW16 took a darker romantic tone; designers drawing from the works of Escher with references of creative escapism captured by Tim Walker photographs.
AW16 takes a floralistic approach to lace with embroideries flourishing across the body and adorning the neck, femininity appearing in the form of elaborate lace collars, ruffled trims and billowing silhouettes and sleeves.
Three Floor Autumn/Winter 2016 will be available to shop online from the end of July 2016.
