Jasper Garvida SS13 Collection

Think 1960’s, Mary Quant and Vidal Sassoon – this is one groovy collection.

Titled ‘L’Unite de Temps et L’Espace’ (Unity of Time and Space), Garvida reflects on this revolutionary period when women experienced the sense of empowerment and dressed accordingly. 

Garvida keeps some of his pieces true to the plain simple 60’s shift style but with bold geometric patterns to create the unity of time and space.

For the evening, this unity is shown as light and shade in the form of tiny round mirrored pieces radiating a 60’s disco vibe.

On others the play of shadow and light is from the shiny and matt satin damask prints.

Texture and glamour are also added by the lace overlays and of course Garvida’s signature sequins.

The main colour palette is monochrome black and white again representing light and shade.....

 .....with accents of neutral beige and cream.

Garvida’s love of animal print is there in a bold and abstract monochrome leopard print.

The key feature which definitely couldn’t be ignored on the day of the catwalk show was the oversized shell like discs adorning one dress and skirt....
 – especially as they jangled noisily with every move the models made.  Definitely not to be worn for a clandestine rendezvous!

Jewellery  by Sarah Angold compliment Garvida’s collection with bangles and necklaces made of laser cut acrylic layers, some 3 dimensional like ruffles, others laid flat  inspired by graphic shapes and both playing on the light.  www.sarahangold.com

Shoes by Kat Maconie carry on the geometric architectural shape to the footwear with great angular platform and heels

Hairstylists used on the models? Vidal Sassoon of course.
