Éthologie by Jasper Garvida presents the new Autumn Winter 2016 Collection, “To live without hope is to cease to live”.
Strong, bold lines and a monochromatic colour palette define Garvida’s collection. With the spirit of Russian Constructivism at its core, feminine silhouettes are emphasised by stripes and block colour panels.
Handkerchief hemlines reflect the sharp lines of the Russian Constructivism aesthetic, softened by the graceful drape of flowing fabrics. Leather is set against delicate lace, as well as gorgeous silk georgette and organza. Soft knits featuring oversized collars are crafted from beautiful British alpaca wool.
Garvida’s trademark embellishments take centre stage. Designs are adorned with intricate hand-embroidered beading as Rodchenko’s influence is captured in geometric shapes. The dance between light and shade is accented with flashes of silver and neutral tones.
Minimalism and modernity combine as the collection celebrates a message of hope and female empowerment. Garvida explains, “I have a deep appreciation for women and I’m so thankful to have been brought up a by a strong, independent woman. It’s the reason I’m in fashion.”
