Yep, nerd me has set myself another design project. This one has a bit of a 70’s influence, with quite feminine colours, prints and details, but in oversized menswear shapes. Pretty, but not too pretty, you know? Personally, I’m feeling like I want to break out of the endless androgynous/black all the time cycle, and I really love the silhouettes and aesthetic from the early 70’s. But anything too feminine and I feel like I’m an imposter, wearing kids clothes – I’d definitely wear feminine colours/prints in menswear influenced shapes though, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one! (Right?!)
So, here’s my inspiration, silhouette, colour and print boards. Sketches and final collection to come in the next few days.
