Fashion brand PALMER HARDING unveiled their Resort 2023 Collection, that reflects on the brand’s past successes to cultivate creative future. The collection celebrates the house’s history and craft, and investigates designs which formed the foundations of Palmer Harding‘s aesthetic language. It fuses new elements of design with the brand’s historic aesthetic, and it keeps creative narrative in a constant state of rebirth – a journey of self awakening which provides hope for future endeavours.
“The visual journey of this collection starts with a highly precise and engineered detail which focuses on extraction pleats that create an architectural romance. First conceptualised in 2020 as a shirt and shirt dress, this pleating process has been transferred onto a multitude of styles, including a faux leather biker jacket, a technical knitted jumper in viscose, a pair of boot cut trousers and a kinetic pleated skirt that unfolds as you walk. We then move onto dissection, where we visit an unbuttoning-at-the-seams detail first explored in Spring 18, the season palmer//harding were awarded the British Vogue Designer Fashion Fund. Here we transfer this detail from an oversized poet shirt onto blouses, dresses, blazers and coats, in a multitude of fabrics, from saffron and ivory coloured silks to camel wool and khaki cotton drills.Lastly we explore volume radiating from gathered necklines that finishes with an almost floral delicacy. We apply this detail to our signature cotton poplin shirts and shirt dresses while also exploring new areas of inspiration by transferring this detailing to jersey to create modern blouses, tops and dresses.” – form Palmer Harding
