Bianca Spender’s Autumn collection conveys a sense of effortless restraint and rebellion. Stripping design minutiae and starting with a base underpinning of utility and functionality, the collection represents efficaciousness and ease.
The exploration of the concept of the origin of creativity – the street – was the focal point. Looking to cultural influences, such as Henri Cartier-Bresson’s Street photography, Spender considered an urban utility and the sensibility that comes with taking fashion to the street.
“Creativity is born on the street, whether it be photographers capturing a decisive moment in time, emerging designers creating out of their garages or observing the way a woman dresses when she is catching a train or steadily rippling through the city. The starting point for this collection was delving into street life and finding the unexpected moments through design to capture the essence of ease and function.”
