Reimagined Histories: Materials

A dark and luxurious aesthetic develops that breathes new life into discarded materials. Historical artefacts are updated with modern processes and time-honoured techniques in order to preserve the past yet appeal to a contemporary market.

Reimagined Histories appreciates the beauty of aged surfaces and overlooked objects. Everyday waste materials are worked with rich silks, precious stones and opulent metals, elevating their value and extending their lifespan. Aged leathers and complex organic forms contrast against warm velvet, sumptuous fabrics and iridescent surfaces that offer a subtle mystical sheen.

For colour directions relating to this theme, see Reimagined Histories: Colour from our Colour Spectrum A/W 19/20.
