ROKSANDA showcased its Spring Summer 2024 Collection at London’s Barbican this week, with the collection exploring the interplay between fluid silhouettes and brutalist architecture.
The capsule takes cues from Roksanda’s personal heritage, drawing inspiration from the monasteries of Gračanica, Studenica, and Žiča, and their exquisite fresco paintings.
These historical elements find their way into the delicate and intricate pieces on display, with traditional robes reimagined using modern techniques like fill coupe and printed lamina, all of which evoke a sense of tactility and fragility.
Encapsulating the depth of femininity versus masculinity, the brand’s powerful tailoring is showcased through structured jackets and pencil skirts crafted in Argenta wool-silk melange, featuring artisanal screen printing with bold colour palettes.
The latest capsule from the house experiments with textures, combining glossy panelling with technical nylon and melange wools, providing a subtle reveal of the female anatomy.
The transformative and intimate movements of the collection are further emphasized by circular metal sculptures and delicate silk twill marbling, showcasing ultra-feminine formations.
