For Spring Summer 2020, design duo Johnny Talbot and Adrian Runhof, take their inspiration from the art scene. Thus, the looks of this line depict a very creative, feminine yet versatile overall image. Furthermore they always stay highly individual yet natural, with just the right amount of each. They are the perfect addition for any contemporary woman that dares to dress in bold colours and eye-catching prints. You can meet this kind of woman at galleries, art fairs or ateliers. She is underlining her expert knowledge by wearing statement pieces that stand out from the crowd.
What stays in mind: business styles are interpreted in an incredibly innovative way. The cut of the classy business blazer is kept lengthened, the silhouette rather loose. Additionally, the traditional Glencheck pattern is interpreted in a very refreshing way: it is sparkling and colourful. This fancy blazer can be paired with a matching, comfortable skirt in midi length. Therefore it is a comfortable yet stylish combination that can be worn the whole day.
Due to their unique print choice, the looks have a fresh, flamboyant yet unique approach. But also the dresses of this collection can be understood as an ode to celebrate individuality: they appear as flowing midi dresses, effortlessly draped and are produced of light cotton poplin. These pieces will certainly brighten your everyday business wardrobe.
In the whole collection, classic pieces are replicated and reworked. You find both a bunch of impressionistic watercolours but also sundry lively Art Nouveau elements. Glamorous dresses play a central role in this line, they appear as blazer dresses, tux dresses, pantsuits made of light crepe, with striking lapels, that are eased by flowing drapes and playful flounces. Light robes made of shining lurex voile guarantee a graceful appearance at art events.
“State of the Art” harmoniously unites inspirations from fashion and art. As a consequence, a bunch of incredibly innovative, vibrant business styles are created.
