I discovered myself actually drawn to the Rabbit label on seeing the newest assortment ‘Lovesick’. The garments are the stuff of fairytales and magic. They’re all about craft and great supplies which conflict and improve when worn collectively,
The label is all of the work of Sophie Spratley the 25-year-old Graduate of Kingston College of Artwork. She grew up in a rural city referred to as Marlow on the river Thames. A few of her earliest reminiscences are of climbing tress within the native forest and tending the household allotment as she grew up.
There’s a classic high quality to the garments. They’re influenced by completely different eras of historical past and imagined tales of yore. Sophie takes her method from the concepts behind the Arts and Crafts motion that her grandfather studied. She favours methods powered by the physique together with display screen printing, crochet and home knitting. They’ve a crafted high quality to them which is a part of the aesthetic but additionally half fo the ethos behind the label. For AW22 all of rabbit’s knitwear has been handmade by the designer and her assistants, while the attire and bodysuits have been produced by hand at a tiny atelier within the leafy British countryside.
Sustainability can also be vital as is the sourcing of supplies. The textures and really feel of the supplies are alleged to be a sensual and sensory expertise. British Shetland wool. Luxurious silk velvet meets cotton muslin on the empire line hem of the alluring Cidella costume.
Her twisting and telling of fantastical tales continues along with her newest assortment ‘Lovesick’ the place the appeal and craft, as all the time, shines by means of.
