Spring Summer 2018

Hockney, both his artwork and the man himself, was the starting point for Powney’s Spring Summer 2018 collection; drawing inspiration from his Yorkshire landscapes alongside his personal style of mismatched patterns, woollen knitwear and standout accessories. Inspired by his talent to create a variety of depths and layers in his work, Powney uses graphic patterns from his own wardrobe of stripes, spots and checks, and remixes them together, resulting in a multi dimensional and highly tactile collection. A wide check coat is worn over a gingham dress and striped mules are fastened with contrasting silk ankle ties.

A colour palette of burnt yellow, gold and mauve echoes Hockney’s Northern scenery and appears amongst tulips, daisies and poppies interspersed with classically British summer reds and blues. This led to Powney’s modern take on the English countryside, drawing inspiration from A Room With a View’s Lucy Honeychurch, and Far from the Madding Crowd’s Bathsheba Everdene; in looks and strength of character. A checked picnic blanket becomes a relaxed knit coat, a tweed suit is updated with wide leg trousers and pearl and gold embellishments, characteristic of Powney’s juxtaposing masculine and feminine.

The Yorkshire countryside setting led Powney to Simon Armitage’s poem ‘Pearl’, an ethereal and celestial protagonist seen in a lush green garden, emanating purity and dressed in white and pearls. Powney took these romantic visions of this fourteenth century girl and propelled her into modern day with her signature Mother of Pearl twist, adding a current and humorous take on Britishness gleaned from social photographers such as Martin Parr, reminiscent of her own youth. A cloud like satin puffa jacket is added to a midi dress with cutaway, pearl encrusted shoulders. A loose pyjama set in crepe back satin rouches at the waist before cascading to a floor-length hem. A Pearl for today.
