Inspired by Cy Twombly’s abstract works, Quincampoix and C F McEwan present a contemporary printed collection for Autumn Winter 16.
Fashion designer Jennifer Rodríguez-Selden from Quincampoix and textile designer Clare McEwan from C F McEwan, studied together at Central Saint Martins in 1999. With a shared love of colour and experimental drawing, they collaborated on an exclusive print project, based on Cy Twombly’s expressive paintings.
Rodríguez-Selden and McEwan studied and absorbed Twombly’s palette and gestural paint marks, to transform a body of their Twombly-inspired paintings into prints for fashion. These use digital photography to combine the handwriting of both designers into each of the edited prints.
Artwork is printed onto lightweight 100% silk crepe de chine, square in size, 125cm x 125cm and 100% cashmere 190cm x 65cm. Scarves are photographed by Lindsay Watson, Hair and Make-up by Alice Oliver and Model Isabelle at Nevs.
