Beaufille SS16

SS16_LOOKBOOK_WEB-18No word of a lie, Beaufille continues to stun us with each new collection it presents and also continues to be our favourite designer collection from our home city of Toronto. For SS16, designer sisters Chloé and Parris Gordon created a collection that evokes a retro futuristic feel, with subtle hints to George Lucas’ original Star Wars from 1977. “We began to work more intuitively this season, and we were really working backwards” says Parris. “We wanted to get back the roots of our technical and hands-on skills from art school” explains Chloé, “it was important to feature a hand-made fabric that is unique to the brand. I created our ‘modern lace’ fabric by embroidering layers of cotton and linen yarn inside water soluble bags, then washed the
bags away in the bath tub to reveal the intricate and abstract manipulated fabric”. The collection, which pays homage to Beaufille‘s ethos of hard vs. soft was photographed by Sarah Blais, with styling by Monika Tatalovic, hair and makeup by Natalie Ventola and modelled by our current girl crush, Agnes Kudukis @Next.SS16_LOOKBOOK_WEB-40 SS16_LOOKBOOK_WEB-15 SS16_LOOKBOOK_WEB-20SS16_LOOKBOOK_WEB-12SS16_LOOKBOOK_WEB-17SS16_LOOKBOOK_WEB-3
