PRE FALL '23
A conceptual walk through a gallery in 1960’s Paris marked the underpinnings of Pre-Fall ‘23. Artists Yves Klein & Jean Tinguely ruled the Nouveau Realisme movement. Matisse’s cut out work sung. YSL brought the Le Smoking tuxedo suit and revolutionised the women's pants suit. Crochet made its mark through textiles in homes and on the body. A time filled with abstractness, experimentation and pops of colours to inspire a generation.
Prints designed in house explore cut out abstract shapes collaged together with no defined meaning, inspired by the aforementioned art of the Nouveau Realisme. Contrasted with opulent tapestry of stamped wall paper florals both with a feeling now signature to a new era of SIR.
A palette of unexpected pops of primary colour against a blank canvas of ivory and the simplicity of monochrome in dark blue and black. Ruched panel lines in mesh and silk, linking to the organic geometry of new season prints, while stories of crochet, knitwear and cotton play on mod silhouettes and the interaction between sheer and solid.
SIR. swim enchants a feeling of eternal summer in classic shapes with sharp lines and carefully placed cutouts to compliment the body in a sophisticated tone. While channels gathered by chains and clusters of multi stone beads add a conceptual edge stemming from 1960s kinetic sculptures.
SIR. tailoring contrasts both the sculptural and the relaxed, with three dimensional contouring lines and custom buckles reminiscent of Matisse’s cut outs. A classic pinstripe suiting story extends the SIR. suiting offering and solidifies the category as a now staple in the SIR. repertoire.
Pre Fall ‘23 draws on these defining moments to create a collection drawing from past muses to breathe newness into a collection that remains quintessentially SIR. through timeless separates, intimates and ready-to-wear.
