Globe Trotter, A/W 2013


see my online portfolio here

If you've noticed that I have been missing over the past few weeks, I have the reason for you right here. I have busily been designing this big boys range for A/W 13 which I named Globe Trotter. This is my first attempt at older boys and I have to admit, I was a little nervous that everything might turn out too baby-ish looking. I actually had a lot of fun researching and designing this range which came as a total surprise to me! I originally started my career as a girls designer and being very girly myself, I never could have imagined just how excited this whole process would get me... but it did!

Globe Trotter spans the 9 -14 year age range in boys and so I had to make sure that each piece could be deemed cool enough, while still maintaining a playful youthfulness to it. This collection is about a young wanderer, eager to discover the world through curious eyes. Influences from nature are found throughout the collection in graphics, prints, color, and fabrication. Fabric mixing and piecing play key roles in the garments to create the overall look. Heathered and marled fabrics are displayed next to chunky knits, denims,  and baby corduroy for a rugged, outdoor feel. And to finish off the collection, leather accents are complemented with with wood buttons, brass hardware, and twill branding. 

Hope you enjoy viewing the collection as much as I did designing it!
