August Getty Atelier presents 'Thread of Man', an incredibly personal representation of the powerful women who have in turns, inspired the designer throughout his life and within the present day.
Using the skin tone of five iconic women as a foundation, Getty has built the structure, color palette and mood of this luxurious collection.
A female army representing strength and empowerment is at the heart of this collection; innately sexual clothes such as body conscious cut-out dresses interwoven with those indicative of a more innocent sensuality and multiple levels of modesty.
The designer has played with a full spectrum of lengths to further illustrate the endlessly variable personalities and lives of those he dresses and lives amongst. Semi-uniformity is evident in scuba silhouettes, Opera coats and lantern sleeves; playing into a postmodernist vision of how our future society may look and dress.
Throughout the collection, fine Italian leathers, silks and gold lace appear in various guises. These luxury textiles are completed with sumptuous French knot identified by individually hand tied knots that form the fabric itself.
A color palette of porcelain/stone, caramel, dusty peach, warm chocolate brown and cashew anchors the collection with a sophisticated sensibility with dusty notes hinting towards the restraint at play.
