Twenty-seven Names’ mood board for their new AW19 collection “A cat may look at a Queen”. Image supplied.
Wellington brand Twenty-seven Names return to NZ Fashion Week 2018 today with a special collection that is a letter to designers Anjali Stewart’s and Rachel Easting’s younger selves. The collection is called “A cat may look at a Queen” and we’re delighted that we can share their mood board for you exclusively on FashioNZ. The new collection for Autumn/Winter 2019 celebrates taking chances, having confidence in your own ideas, and remembering that no one is you, and that is your power!
“We’ve never had so much fun designing a collection,” say Anjali and Rachel. “It’s full of colour and humour — our embodiment of who dat!? We start with psychedelic 70s-inspired floral mash ups in spring green and cornflower blue. Balloons in print and silhouette, with a hand-painted cat print featuring our old mate Bow Cat – she’s older now, she’s brought her friends to the party, and they’re here for a good time. Crisp white cotton, blue denim, unisex pieces and oversized knits act as foils to the rainbow of coats: Beyoncé yellow, apple green, powder blue, and dusk pink. And finally, the cat camo takes it all to the next level – cats for the jilted generation.”
The joyful collection is first up on the runway today at NZ Fashion Week and no doubt the playful collection of cats, flowers and a rainbow of beautiful hues is the perfect way to start the day. Stay tuned for the full runway gallery and review from Twenty-seven Names NZFW show on FashioNZ this afternoon.
