“Heal, like Hervé and Alice, the four hands laboratory to which we owe this first collection.
They talk about a knowledge we’ve lost, the organic material. But they also talk about the desire of finery, carapace, protection, reinterpreted in a playful way.
Therefore this collection doesn’t look down on the sculptural bas-relief printed on incredibly light and flowing fabrics… Always with this contrast of feelings between the structured side of the print and the arachnidan softness of the fabrics: knit, silk, cashmere, sometimes in opposition to more technical fabrics from the sportswear universe. Contrast of the sophisticated and the casual, for the day and for the evening, still with the usual easiness required. A hybrid collection like this print of a giant crawfish which seems to embrace a woman’s size between its claws. Like it would leave an invisible scar.”
And just to say, I really wasn’t sure when I found out that she was to front the new Burberry campaign but now I have seen the images she is absolutely the right choice.. I might even love her a little bit.
Jessica Mills goes to UWE, Bristol and will be showing in Graduate Fashion Week on the Tuesday.
Her website is finally up and running so go check out all her beautiful photographs up-close and personal.
I can’t wait to see the show on Tuesday! Jess’ collection is my favourite, everything about it is beautiful. She’s even been making jewellery for her collection out of fish bones. Incredible!
