Of Cabbages & Kings – S/S 08/09 – PREVIEW

18 September 2008 | No Comment

We featured them in Winter and now again in Summer, Of Cabbages & Kings from PERTH.

Diving deep for inspiration this season Of Cabbages & Kings, wants to plunge you into an aquatic adventure.

Maintaining the OC&K signature aesthetic of hideous come beautiful, the spring/summer 09 collection draws it’s inspirations from sources as wide and varied as the oceans self.

Goodey and Andrews sight everything from the illustrations of German naturalist Ernst Haeckel and the sirens paintings of Herbert Draper and to the epic 1985 album Hounds of Love by Kate Bush.

The collection trawls the oceans for similes: fabric twisted and knotted to look like fishing nets, dip dyed tips suggesting underwater flora, silk fronds floating like seaweed and structured panels imitating fish scales.

The garments embrace a much lighter mood than winter, with the use brighter colours and figure hugging garments.
