After several successful collaborative seasons, Ingrid Verner returns to solo studio sessions for S/S22 - Burlap on Basics. VERNER goes deep into prints and patterns for this collection, dwelling in the space between surface and structural design - Burlap on Basics is a fusion of references that also delights in referencing itself.
Drawing on trompe l'oeil techniques and architectural perspectives, the in-house prints are designed to draw the eye to and around the body. Points of interest appear to disappear. Shapes have their edges blurred; the line of the body is marked and pinned before dematerialising into the starry night sky. Mixed proportions and optical illusions push polka dots and stripes to new places while false layers nod to structural influences.
Effortlessness in Australian dressing is embraced and celebrated. Stretch materials and spacious cuts are our friends now that evening wear ideas are grafted onto sportswear principles. The quintessential 80s sweetheart neckline is repurposed for daywear via the humble soft tee. This season codes are repurposed and remixed.
Certain classic cuts reappear here alongside Verner’s years-long fixations: cleaning products; branding; and suburbia. Burlap on Basics invites you to share a perspective of consideration from a place of comfort. We step out through the sliding door onto the back patio, raising our hands to shield our eyes against the sunlight coming off the sparkling pool. We are working, we are cool. We are stimulated, we are at ease.
