Dear iDEALS,APART is inspired by the idea of moving, recyclable architecture and the migrating Monarch butterfly.
For Summer'13, Simon has created an eclectic and “piece apart” collection that lends a fresh take to his signature pattern cutting techniques. Designs are given a formative interpretation whilst maintaining his rigid structure and dedication to the female silhouette. APART is designed with the intent to renew yet keep the repetition of shapes and prism structures, which adorn each item and are bound to catch the eye and become a summer staple. With a selection of light summer dresses, playsuits, blazers and colorful separates including shirts, skirts and trousers all playing their individual parts to make up the whole collection’s unique look.
