d.d collective teamed up with artist, shan shan lim for a special fall 2018 collection
August 9, 2018
Started from an admiration for London-based illustrator, Alicia Galer, local-based brand, d.d collective teamed up with Central Saint Martin’s graduate/textile designer Shan Shan Lim for a special Fall 2018 collection. Art and curiosity towards the stories behind each fabric or handicraft have both designers to create prints that showcase their unique point of view while still encapsulating the brand’s sense of style.
The creative collaboration presents a capsule of ready-to-wear pieces in five exclusively-designed prints. Each print
features a lineup of nature-inspired motifs and abstract shapes that were drawn from Shan Shan Lim’s
sketches and paintings of everyday surroundings during her travels in which she translated into patterns to create wearable pieces of art.
This collection of hand-painted florals is brought to life in a vibrant colour palette that encompasses
both cool and warm spectrums. Weaved of feminine details such as ruffled sleeves and ribbon lacing with tones of blue, teal, pinks and red. Magnifying silhouettes in playful prints set the tone for this first-ever collaborative effort.
The Fall 2018 collection will be available in stores and online at dd-collective.com from July 2018 onwards.
