Now here is a collection full of historic references and inspirations. The Gemma Slack AW 09/10 Collection inspires from so many different cultures, time periods and concepts but somehow they all come together seamlessly on this one platform. For her second collection, Gemma Slack channels Contemporary Armor, using unfinished leather and woven together hardware unconventional for the world of fashion. Her 2 year apprenticeship with Gareth Pugh has without a doubt left a carbon footprint on her very distinct style.
Each piece within in this collection is a reflection of her story. The print she created for this collection is her idea of “digital smoke, reminiscent of burning church thuribles.” The stark sensibility of the collection is beautifully portrayed by photographer Brooke Nipar in these images.
