We have been working with Orta Anadolu on various projects over the last six years, and this tale of Intergalactic space tribes and denim clad nomads has been our favourite so far. Usually our projects for Orta have had more of a heritage, historic feel about them, so it has been fun to place our latest collection into Outer Space. In design terms if you are either the Flintstones or the Jetsons then usually we are firmly planted in Bedrock, but for this concept we are the Jetsons!
While creating both of these collections we drew inspiration from our archive in London. These rare and unusual utilitarian and military pieces were then interpreted and designed using Orta fabrics in their small atelier in Istanbul, before being washed and treated by Everest Textile Technologies in Italy.
For the latest lookbook we took the story on location to the perfect backdrop of the Sound Mirrors in Dungeness. We worked with an amazing team on the day, and this is pretty much how it looked. Looking forward to showing you the result.
