Amalgama AW

This collection is the continuation of Amalgama summer, same inspiration, same places but different elements and materials.

Amalgama AW

In contrast to the summer collection’s colourful geometric tiles of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, I decided to focus on the wood and chalk ceilings. Instead of the shape and colour of the fields in the Irish countryside I chose the tangled roots and branches of the trees in Kilmacurragh gardens. Still geometric shapes and flounces are involved. The garments are made with different weights of wool fabric in shades of browns and cream colour. To achieve structure influenced by the solid wood I introduced quilting techniques, playing with the lineal pattern of the fabric. Crochet diamond stitch is used to resemble the texture of chalk ceilings featuring neck, sleeves and cuff pieces. Hair pin crochet waves and row strips of silk adorn some designs in order to capture the curvy, tangled branches of the trees.
