For this collection I had spent many months in New York soaking up the sun and colour of their Summer. I became intoxicated by the freedom and confidence of New Yorkers and their ability to wear colour with ease.
I came back to New Zealand and wanted to revisit some of my old monochromatic and tamer fabrications, giving them new life with colour.
This became an Anniversary Collection of sorts, where we focussed on all the things we were best at.
The highlights for me were reworking my WD. Handbags in to 4 new shapes with delicious, custom-dyed, New Zealand deer leather.
We took this collection to New York in the Spring of 2011 for solo presentations during NYFW.
