Resort 2020 / Runway

New Arrivals
The Resort 2020 Collection marks the celebration of our 20th anniversary. This season Lee Mathews was led by the idea of ‘evolution’. The collection considers not only the evolution of the brand, but the evolution of clothing itself. White and cream ensembles are reminiscent of a toile, the genesis of a garment. This season’s prints reference past fabrications re-invented by longtime friend and collaborator Christina Zimpel; her bold artworks forming the collection’s colour palette and proportions. The concept of a steady sartorial trajectory is intentionally subverted through silhouette, resulting in unconventional, almost awkward shapes, lending themselves to a ‘wabi sabi’ aesthetic, an influence for Creative Director Lee Mathews and Head of Design Natalia Grzybowski. Utilitarian pockets offset cascading ruffles as sheer and opaque poplin and silk georgette are juxtaposed.

The outstanding set was designed by Benjamin Fountain, paying homage to the fabric textures and prints in Lee Mathews Resort 2020 collection. Dyed and dried natural elements were used to highlight Mathew’s connection to the natural world and her ongoing and longstanding commitment to sustainability, which has been at the heart of our brand from the very beginning.
The Collection will be available online and instores from November.
