First look: Ashi Studio Autumn/Winter 15
Discover the beautiful new RTW and Couture collections here...
The couture collection sprang from the screen of the 2009 film Grey Gardens, inspired by the true story of Jackie O's aunt and cousin, who lived in a self imposed exile in the family's dishevelled estate – Grey Gardens Mansion. This collection picks out a stripped back, rationed flamboyance, that settles easily on an elegant 1950's style of full princess-line skirts and dresses. The collection is presented in an exclusively solitary ivory palette with intricate neutral and silver brocade embellishment on the rich satin and tulle fabrics, forming a stand out finish that demands to be seen and not hidden from the social scene, like Jackie's aunt.
The ready-to-wear collection is inspired by the structure of the Haute Couture, seeing plenty of lively voluminosity in the silhouettes, but is informed by a 90's minimalism influence also, giving it an easy to wear modern edge. Sprung from the same rich satin as well as cashmere, neoprene, crepe and tulle among others. This collection expands the colour chart to include monochrome and a spectrum of chic naturals.
