Photographed in London by Nicky Emmerson and featuring Anna Nevala, Jenny Packham releases its Autumn Winter 2018 Campaign, a collection of images inspired by the Cosmos.
“Moon dust in your lungs , stars in your eyes , you are a child of the cosmos and ruler of the skies."
The AW18 Collection is inspired by the Cosmos: the scale of the stars, far off galaxies and the themes of the cult sci-fi film, Blade Runner.
Images of space formed the conception of the colour palette. Black punctuates a collection exploding with colour; Neptune inspired the lunar hues and dusk the cosmic blues whilst the atomic red represents the blazing nebular of Sagittarius. Fully beaded gowns are inspired by star-filled skies - meteor showers of sequins, star bursts in crystals, twinkling crescent moons on weightless tulle and cascades of molten lava embellishments.
Evocative of the spirit of Ridley Scott’s femme fatale, silhouettes are bold and glamourous; tailored crepes and statement shoulders are juxtaposed with dramatic skirts of iridescent ‘liquid’ organza, sumptuous draped velvet and versatile separates, a contemporary interpretation of the nuanced character of Blade Runner’s Rachael.
