Elements Jacquard

A look at this season's foundational print


The rhythmic wash of surf on a quiet beach gives the impression of a precise pattern on repeat. However, upon closer examination, each individual wave changes slightly, small irregularities allowing for the apparent symmetry to be interrupted.

The act of seeking sanctuary in nature was a focal point while laying the groundwork for the AW19 Collection. The symmetry inherent in nature’s fractals led us to create a series of fabrics both reflecting these exacting patterns and rejecting them. The rhythmic wash of surf on a quiet beach gives the impression of a precise pattern on repeat. However, upon closer examination, each individual wave changes slightly, small irregularities allowing for the apparent symmetry

to be interrupted. Despite this interruption, a rhythm remains. Nature seems at first beat to be symmetrical, but small nuances break the rhythm without breaking the pattern. Repetition without perfectionism. Fractals in nature exist as never-ending patterns that vary slightly in their repetition. ‘Nature’s algorithm’ if you will. Elements Jacquard takes inspiration from this, with its irregular rectangles built with this algorithm.

Each season we travel to Italy and begin the development process anew, approaching it with creative passion and scientific curiosity...

One of our most exclusive developments to date, Elements Jacquard is a custom-developed wool and polyester jacquard-woven fabric with splendid graphic and technical qualities. Designed by Mismo and developed in collaboration with renowned Italian textile manufacturer Limonta, the fabric pattern is a graphic, two-tone composition that forms an expressive negative pattern. With the rectangular elements of the design featured in a dark and shady grey and the background colour a bright, dusty blue, the fabric is both classic and bold in its appearance and appeal.

The Elements Jacquard fabric is paired with our full-grain black bridle leather to enhance the sharp and graphic look and is trimmed with the solid brass accessories the Appearance Collection prescribes. As with all of our Limonta collaborations, great care and time goes into developing the jacquard weaving. Each season we travel to Italy and begin the development process anew, approaching it with creative passion and scientific curiosity, ensuring each textile is crafted with the utmost technical expertise and with special care for the environment. Taking its cues from striking irregular rectangles, Elements Jacquard can be found in a range of styles that suit its individuality.
