Spring Summer 2021
NEW SUMMER COLOURS
An exciting collection of 17 new Cashmere colours presented across the summer range. Versatile, thought provoking, and directional, they offer a new look to familiar colour groups.
A new casual summer black, soft summer brights, and moody darker tones, as well as two new essential Denim blues.
Environmental challenges and opportunities continue to come to the fore in the textile industry.
We seek to reconnect with the elements of land and sea through a collective of Cornish artists.
Inspiration this season is from the south west coast of the UK, Cornwall. Where sea and skyscapes; British seaside town life; and the artists haven of St Ives, influence SS/21’s refreshing approach to colour and knit. These new shades and knits give a nod to a group of talented Cornish artists.
Barbara Hepworth’s sculpture studio and garden in St Ives, is the backbone of T&D’s concepts for Spring/Summer.
This creative space, of lush tropical green plants and large-scale sculptures, next to her white studio filled with half-finished blocks of marble and stone surrounded by sculpture’s tools, have inspired the new group of delicate chalked pastels and stonework knit structures this season. The knits are developed around classic techniques of tucking, front and back bed stitch transfers and float stitches to create small irregular textures and stripes.
Influences for SS/21’s refreshing approach to colour is from Cornwall and the artists haven of St Ives, giving a nod to a group of varied and talented artists working in paint and sculpture.
Knit structures are developed around the manipulation of the classic elements - tucking, front & back bed transfers, floating stitches, and striping.
Ben Nicholson’s collage style painting, ‘Chelsea 1924’, is inspiration for a one-off knitted patchwork panel. We look at the role of repurposing textiles to create new looks using colourful cut out shapes and irregular overstitching.
