Artist not the muse, autumn 2019 preview
Together with Design Director Rebekah McQuoid and Artist Talia Blank, we presented our upcoming collection, ‘Artist Not the Muse’ at La Porte Space this November.
“This season, we looked beyond the most influential artists of the surrealist and impressionist movements, and drew inspiration from the stoic women who stood beside them. 'Artist Not the Muse' celebrates the women behind the work, and recognises them as artists of their own right” –Bek McQuoid.
Regal purples, vibrant oranges and romantic reds captivated all present, and submerged them into the ultimate impressionist palette. An exploration into new fabrications was presented, ridged forms, luxurious ribs and corduroys generated excitement while ruffles, fluid drapery and frayed accents charmed all.
Embracing the theme of wearable art, we collaborated with emerging female artists Talia Blank, who recreated her exclusive prints found within the collection, on our Classic Bennett Shirts and signature Nobody Denim tote bags.
“We loved collaborating with Talia on our latest printed t-shirts and we were thrilled to have her involved in our Autumn Not The Muse Preview" –Bek McQuoid
We welcomed key attendees including the likes of Vogue Australia, RUSSH, Harper’s Bazaar, Side-Note, Inprint Magazine, Rachel Rutt, Bella Thomas, Yasmin Suteja and more.
A collection dedicated to the bold, ‘Artist Not the Muse’ celebrates art, life and individuality.
Launching in-store and online January 2019.
