Tim Hamilton has designed a collection for Uniqlo and it’s a nicely filtered version of his own stuff. Tim said: “Merging refined elegance with youthful energy, this collection took as a source the modern, playful images of Bruno Munari’s photo-reportage. Finding humour in the industrial, modernising settings of 1930s Europe, Munari shows carelessly chic youth butting heads with the buttoned-up, formal establishment.”
I love the faded overexposed colours used in this collection which clearly recall photographs: “This contrast is reflected in the colours and fabrics of the collection: muted colours meet with a nearly-technicolour palette as denim and jersey play off of deluxe twills, cashmeres and poplins. Workmen’s shirts are rendered in fine cottons, t-shirts are given elevated details, some knits are cut on the bias and some seams are torqued. Fun and imagination come together to land on a romantic idea of contemporary style.”
If you like what you see give his website a look, his Resort and Spring Summer collections are a big hit.
