FARAH SPRING SUMMER 2016
A Collection Inspired by The Young British Artists
Inspiration: The Young British Artists is the name given to a group of irreverent visual artists who first began to exhibit together in London in the early 90’s. Inspiration is taken from the painting style, attitude and exuberant nature of these individuals who created Britart. Reworked 90’s sportswear pieces are combined with print and texture to create modern, masculine pieces with a subtle twist.
The Collection: For Spring/Summer 2016 Farah’s collection combines considered design with performance fabrics and a vibrant colour palette, capturing the label’s ethos of creating garments that are beautifully tailored, ingeniously understated and progressive through construction, shape and silhouette. Structured nylon cotton blends are combined with a range of technical outerwear fabrics to give the collection a premium sportswear feel.
Cotton/linen blends, seersucker, cotton ramie and slub chambrays in pastel shades update Farah’s classic pieces giving them a contemporary identity.
Prints are in bright primary colours; creating graphic geometric and figurative patterns; these can be seen on textured fabrics such as slub cotton and cotton/linen blends. Microscopic inspired geometric prints in shades of blue, pink and green cascade down shirts, t-shirts and tailored shorts. Knit-design is in counteracting yarns; interrupting the surfaces but allowing two patterns to interact to create unification. A vibrant colour palette of rich reds, greens and blues with modern pop colours of yellow and pink creates a refined juxtaposition.
