What is nostalgia if not an homage to memories of the past? Anchored in the power of reflection, the latest collection from Australian designers, CAMILLA AND MARC, aptly titled, NOSTALGIA, offers a sense of clarity and insight that unfolds to a state of connection and simplicity.
A collection guided by pure feeling, CAMILLA AND MARC have looked to life-forming perceptions of the past to inspire and create a binding standard of the future. Shifting away from the testing terrain of the outside world, NOSTALGIA permeates a notion of true freedom – reinforcing that anything is possible through one’s connection to self.
“This collection is an intimate portrayal of the past and it’s perceived simplicity, an energetic interpretation of things gone, shaped and crafted for this moment in time and the woman who inhabits the now” said creative director, Camilla Freeman-Topper of the collection.
“I’m curious about the idea of progress through self-connection; and how our experiences and thoughts entirely form and shape our way forward. In a way, this collection represents the power of looking back, and the simplicity of truly recognising our own journey”.
True to CAMILLA AND MARC's stylistic DNA, NOSTALGIA showcases a timeless aesthetic that honours simplicity and the passage of a woman throughout each stage of her multifarious life. A reflection of the brand's utilitarian sense of boldness, the feminine silhouettes championed throughout the collection are equally structured as they are streamlined.
A collection defined by its tactility, NOSTALGIA places raw, natural materials at the centre of its designs – think stonewashed outerwear, unwashed denim, oversized knits, sleek silk dresses and textured wardrobing essentials. The brand's commitment to exemplary, sleek tailoring presents itself in the signature form of oversized and relaxed silhouettes; while ruched dresses and sculptural sleeves create moments of volume and youthfulness.
NOSTALGIA by CAMILLA AND MARC is a contemporary yearning towards simplicity, pieces with a youthful spirit that bring a sense of purpose and clarity to the women who wear them. The new collection is available to shop online today, at camillaandmarc.com.
