Discover Alice Archer‘s Spring Summer 2020 collection inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s watercolour paintings, presented on Saturday, September 14th, during the ongoing London Fashion Week.
“Alice renders her floral subjects liquid through application of painterly approaches, and then reaffirms them in stark, drawn outlines. By blending elegant, graphic line work and energetic, gestural colouring; control with fluidity, Alice evokes the decisive strength and felt, instinctive nature of the Alice Archer woman.
This collection sees Alice combine delicacy with fluency; her signature flair for the intricate and decorative with a renewed clarity of shape and simplicity of silhouette. Archer’s uses simplicity to express a direct, uncomplicated love, whilst her dedicated, painstaking use of sophisticated embroidery exalts the wearer with its treasure like quality. These pieces are made to be treasured – slow fashion that exudes the care with which it has been made.“
