The menswear designer debuts his first mainline womenswear collection.

“Women have a rich history of wearing men’s clothing – and too right, forever long it continues – but what about if you wanted a dress or skirt for an occasion?” Kit Neale explained of the label’s debut womenswear venture a year ago.

A collaboration with Rainbow Brite – read the full interview here – the capsule collection was made up of pastel shades and teddy bear furs, riffing on Kit Neale prints past.

A strong affair, it no doubt paved the way for the label’s debut mainline womenswear collection (and the pre-collection launched at LC:M back in June), modelled above by Anti-Agency’s Donnika Anderson.

Comprised of two key aesthetics, the first mirrors a set of candles found by the team at a flea market (the holiday maker motifs!); says Neale, “We based our SS15 invite on them but these never made an appearance in the menswear collection and I’ve been gagging to dust them off and put them to good use.”

The second, and perhaps the more predominant of the line-up, focuses on a print titled ‘Super Happy Fabulous’, produced from the patterns drawn from the figures clothing. Elsewhere the work of the Memphis Group and Magda Archers (you’ll likely know her ‘My Life Is Crap’ lamb image), is loosely referenced across sunshine appropriate separates.
