We’re falling madly in love with the monochrome wonders of Éthologie’s SS15 pre-collection by Jasper Garvida. The look varies from feminine dresses with soft colours of egg-shell white to bold statement dresses with geometric panelling. Although the designs are clean cut and slick, the intricate beading within them gives a unique balance of simplicity and detail.
Garvida experiments with different metallic sheens to create different scopes of colour which are contrasted against lighter hues. The use of amazing materials such as oyster shells create a dramatic texture which also reflect the light to add a new dimension to the clothing. But Éthologie (meaning the study of animal behaviour) really returns to their etymological routes with their gorgeous animal print dresses which are carved up with black panelling. The prints definitely add a bit of fun to the seriousness of monochrome and has a bit of that vintage, 60s vibe to it whilst being updated for the modern women- definitely the vibe of the entire collection.
