SS18 / CONCEPT
THE STORY BEHIND THE CURRENT HOODEDWEPT COLLECTION
MANIFESTO - SS/18
"The only thing I truly fear is mediocrity"
Hoodedwept – Manifesto: Womens / SS18 , is both a declaration and celebration of a woman’s personal standpoint:
The embracing of ones own vulnerability in order for strength to thrive, and the acknowledgemnt of the warrior within forms the core of this collection.
Drawing on the symbolism of water (emotion and sensuality) and equine imagery (strength and endurance) Hoodedwept present a carefully considered story of textures, muted colours, darkness and light, conveying in concept, palate and silhouette, every nuance of the wearer, both sacred and profane.
Base tones of multi-textured black are highlighted by fresh Chalk Whites and Prussian blue. Dull metallics are warmed by subtle accents of rich Merlot to provide a strong counterpoint to the weighty leathers, soft silk/cotton mixes, organic bamboo knits and whisper-sheer mesh that comprise the range.
We want our wearers to explore and celebrate their own personal manifesto whilst considering ours..
