‘War Horse’, the play by Nick Stafford was the initial inspiration for the collection. Focusing on the military uniforms as a primary reference point, along with the shapes and structures of the horse puppets used in the stage production, provide the framework. The use of leather was a significant factor in interpreting these ideas as well as being used to control the shape, volume and overall silhouette of the garments. In contrast to the leather, the no man’s land-inspired print breaks up the harsh details and allows the softer garments underneath to be wrapped up and protected by the garments on top.
