Jenny Packham Spring 2014

September 15, 2013

For her Spring 2014 collection, designer Jenny Peckham took a page from the 1970’s – literally. Her collection was inspired by a book, Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay, which in 1975 was turned into a film directed by Peter Weir. The story was set in 1900 about a couple of girls who attended a boarding school in Australia who attend a picnic where three of them oddly end up disappearing. But through her collection, the characters have found themselves and come to life and appear to have found themselves in beautiful garments fusing both the 70’s and the Edwardrian era. The Spring 2014 collection included pieces with polka dot, check and stripe print in beautiful pearl and Swarovski beading. Brick red, cobalt blue and lime green tones are contrasted with a delicate array of soft powder pinks and silver marbles. Translucent, weightless organza adds a whimsical romance to the collection whilst waists clinched with satin ribbons reference the silhouettes of the Edwardian era.
