collection inspired by poem...
"The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"
loved this collection...really delicate.
the show seemed to follow quite a dark stroryline.
love how its connection to the sea was more involved around pearls, textures and felt traditioanlly english... rather than following anchors, stripes, etc.
i fell in love with lee's collections after working at his show showing his summer 2010 collection "A Summer Since Passed".
"The collection - "A Summer Since Passed" - is based on old English summers of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. I read a lot of Victorian literature, which has inspired the characters wearing the garments, along with Peter Weir’s film ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ and Renoir’s ‘Le déjeuner des canotiers’."
the venue, wilton's music hall, with 'hendricks gin' attending the bar made for a perfect setting for the collection.
