Comprising of the coolest whites and warmest greys, this collection exudes a non-seasonal palette over an array of new leathers, and an exploration into the female form, by females.
The understated essentials, P19 and P29, are encased in three non-printed options. Silky smooth, Italian hair-on calf returns in an ever-classic ivory hue and the Brand introduces two new leathers; metallic and perch fish-leather. The lustrous pewter pouches are the results of the first foray into metallic tones, perfect for day or night. Textural perch leather is offered in the subtlest shade; custom-coloured in Iceland specifically for this collection, they truly are one-of-a-kind pieces. Lined in Italian cotton and finished with branded silver hardware, the pouches remain endlessly versatile.
With art at their core, this collection sees the Brand’s signature shapes brought to life by three upcoming British designers; Bailey Williamson-Ward, Karima Alexander and Sahira Boora. Their interpretations of the female form are depicted in an eternally classic monochrome palette. Effortlessly transpired from canvas to leather, the prints are pure and evoke the artists’ original pieces and techniques.
Bailey Williamson-Ward (@bailey.ww) is a London-based student. In 2015, she graduated from University of the Arts London: Camberwell, with a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design. Bailey’s piece for 6.26.4 is a pencil drawing, focusing attention on the female figure by using realistic techniques alongside bold lines.
Karima Alexander (@karimaalexander) is a female artist based in London, specialising in works of the female form, with attention to detail and a signature use of embellishments. Karima’s bespoke piece for 6.26.4 explores the female form by using mixed media on canvas, using acrylic paint and sequins, where each sequin has been individually embellished.
Sahira Boora (@sahiraboora) is a Fashion Design student currently working on her graduate collection, where she is exploring the beauty within neutrality. Sahira’s piece for 6.26.4 eliminates areas of colour from paper using chlorine, and reveals layers of the female form with charcoal.
