Isham’s inspiration for Autumn Winter 17/18 came from the Japanese poet Matsuo Basho and his poem titled: When the Winter Chrysanthemums Go'.
Evoking a Rhapsody of a Southern Winter’s Night of a distant world just beyond the horizon with its exotic long languorous enchanted evening that’s stark, yet gilded with a freshness that’s innocent and intricate by the romantic delicate hand embroideries.
Delicate folds of georgette and satin backed crepe give dimension to gentle ruches in intricate blends of silk and jersey.
Plaiting, pleating and hand beading that’s gathered high and twisted around the neck add depth to elegant folds.
The luxurious collection with its ethereal lightness, tenderness and soft shapes pushes this line and its silhouettes into a new direction.
This season welcomes bold hues including: sunset orange, regal amethyst,
deep blue, olive khaki and opulent gold.
Structured pieces that play with interesting techniques of twisting delicate wool in bold, vivid hues keeps the tailored pieces special, contemporary yet still glamorous.
For this special occasion, three limited edition bespoke vivid colours prints were created. Called Regal Azalea
and Winter Chrysanthemum, created in diaphanous georgette sumptuous velvet, structured scuba, super jersey and knit.
Every single garment is proudly made in England.
