High Summer 2017
High Summer Capsule CollectionNostalgic memories are brought to life through the A.C.F High Summer capsule – inspired by childhood memories of running barefoot through the orange, lemon and olive groves in the Australian Outback. Sweet scents of orange blossom and zesty lemon combine and fill the hot summer’s breeze, encapsulating us in a haze of sweeter times. These vivid memories are transformed into modern delights with a contemporary twist on resort wear. Born to be utilitarian by nature, gender-fluid styles stand at the forefront of the collection. Juxtaposing drawstring waistbands create a naturalistic paper bag effect while clean edges outline flared sleeves. Side seam splits and plunging V-necks add minimalistic detail. Creamy whites and shades of light washed denim neutralize pops of blood orange and bright lemon, while earthy olive pairs perfectly with dusty rose and charcoal basics. Light summer fabrics of linen, cotton, denim, and bamboo are highlighted with delicate lace and seersucker with vegan suede adding greater depth to the easy-to-wear collection. Our classic vegan bomber and denim jackets are reinvented into oversized urban essentials, while trousers are doubly designed to be worn separately as shorts, keeping creative innovation fresh and practical. Each style can be worn with aplomb as hero pieces feature three-way tops, two-way camisoles and reversible skirts. All this, with an ethical supply chain and the environment in mind.
