‘An ode to sun -worship, folklore, magic and freedom of expression’ was how Holly Fulton described her SS15 collection. The collection was inspired by the work of Scottish artist JD Ferguson, in particular his cubist sculpture of the Anglo Saxon Goddess Eastra, which was in turn inspired by his ballet dancing wife Margret Morris, a true bohemian who was often pictured covered in flowers.
The references of the two were combined and executed in the most exquisite manner, in a collaboration with Woolmark, the collection comprised of A-line dresses, loose wide leg trousers, crop tops, oversized coats, panelled shirts with wide sleeves and beautiful midi and maxi skirts. In a colour palette of navy, green, rich reds, black, white and delicate pastel colours of powder blue, pale pink, sand and lemon yellow all adorned with Fulton’s classic geometric prints, and intricate applique flowers that graced the necklines of dresses and scattered across organza skirts.
Eyewear brand Cutler and Gross was another collaboration for Fulton’s SS15 collection offering up some 60’s style sunglasses. This was femininity at its finest, chic, elegant and understated with a dash of folklore magic that will have you waiting for next spring with baited breath.
