Designer duo Levi Palmer and Matthew Harding reveal their new Palmer//Harding Spring Summer 2017 Womenswear Collection during the ongoing London Fashion Week. In charge of styling for the presentation was Carmen Borgonovo, with set design from Thomas Bird, and casting direction by Megan McCluskie. Beauty is work of hair stylist Stephen Low at Neville for L’Oreal Professionnel, and makeup artist Attracta Courtney using Glo&Ray.

SPRING SUMMER 2017 WOMENSWEAR COLLECTIONS

Sometimes, freedom is about individual choice and a concrete situation rather than a purely abstract ideal. Especially when it involves the pursuit of creative interests or even personal development. For ss17, palmer//harding found that in choosing to make more time for themselves, they actually had more room to process ideas or sparks of imagination generated whilst working. Snippets of Matthew King’s artwork, Americana and a continued fascination with vaporwave music (anti-capitalist and anonymous) were free to mingle with thoughts of power dressing, languid layers and urban living. As such, the collection is about playing around with the notion of freedom by incorporating joyous volume and slightly exaggerated proportions. Long, loose silhouettes dominate with asymmetric sleeves or an oversized cuff, plus robe-like belting to cinch it all in, while a sense of movement is evoked by cascading hems, wraparound details and powerful, flowing shirts, the palmer//harding mainstay.
