Running Through Pentagons Spring/Summer 2019

The collection is designed for Spring/Summer 2019, based on the film Forrest Gump. It incorporates the combination of the Vietnam war and sportswear garments to give an edgy athleisure appeal. The collection includes hand drawn prints inspired by Martin Carey’s art piece ‘Exorcise the Pentagon’ about the levitation of the Pentagon (Washington D.C) during the Vietnam war. To add an extra appeal screen printed stripes and pentagons bring geometric shapes, which enhance the drawings. Fabrics such as cottons including mixed weights of drills, twills, cotton satin and sateens, allow a comfortable and durable fit, this allows the collection to capture the relaxed silhouette with a military edge.
