FALL WINTER 2018
THE STORY
THE GOLDEN AGE

For Fall Winter 2018 Mischka Aoki takes us back to 15th and 16th century Britain, the period of English Renaissance, the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, also known as The Golden Age.

The Elizabethan era was depicted as The Golden Age due to the wealth and peace of the country at this time; Queen Elizabeth I promoted exploration, allowing new trade routes to exotic countries, which influences the use of exotic fabrics and feathers in this season’s stand out collection.

During this era, “Statutes of Apparel” were enforced; a law where only royal members and the highest of society were able to wear the finest of fabrics, which are emulated in this collection – silk, satin, taffeta & feathers. Authority and power were identified when wearing the colour black, of which Mischka Aoki re-introduces this season. Adorned with three-dimensional, gold leaf elements and Swarovski crystals, these details form Her Rival Monarchs dress. The colour silver was only to be seen on the most noble of statuses, and makes its debut appearance to the brand for Fall Winter 2018.

English Renaissance was a cultural and artistic movement, and the introduction of the revolutionary playwright, William Shakespeare. Inspiration from his passion for birds (used often in his literature) has engineered the perfect pink fabric of The Statue of Beauty design. Fine artists, Nicholas Hilliard and Hans Holbein have influenced the portraiture range. The Queen Elizabeth gown boasts an original technique of skirting, constructed from a new pleated silk taffeta fabric, individually positioned by hand in Mischka Aoki’s atelier. New for the brand this season; the introduction of add-on statement pieces, allowing every design to be customized by the individual, with the option of removable, ravishing ruff neckpieces, sensational tulle puff sleeves and stunning sequin belts, and not to be forgotten - the dazzling hosiery.
