Dashing Tweeds Autumn/ Winter 13 cloth collection explores texture in menswear.
Inspiration came from the paintings of Mark Rothko and the abstract expressionists, we were stimulated by their rich tonal palettes.
A classic lightweight pinstripe was developed with a loop mohair yarn, and flecked colour was explored through the Dashing Donegal tweeds, woven in Ireland by Magee Weaving. Textures of thick paint and brush strokes inspired a paint splash jacquard in a mohair and merino blended yarn and a rubber yarn was also woven with merino in a honey comb structure to create an innovative and exciting new fabric to be used in our AW13 ready to wear collection which will launch in a couple of weeks.
