Laura and Saara of Named Patterns have been very busy of late, and we’re happy to be able to share the results of their work with you.
Their new collection for Fall-Winter 2014, Ritual, is now out, and we’re excited to have ten new styles from the line available as digital patterns.
The collection was inspired by the Native American peoples: their culture, clothing, and myths. The simple structures and shapes, earthy materials, and interesting cuts combined with generous embellishment triggered Laura’s and Saara’s interest in researching Native American clothing which in turn led to the creation of this collection.
The team has produced an amazing inspirational look-book for the line that’s available by clicking through the see the full post.
I think it’s accurate to say that these are the first photos of wolves to appear on the Oliver + S blog. You can click any image for a full-sized view.
Ritual is most decorative of all Named collections so far. The collection challenges seamstresses of all skill levels to explore, mix, and match special materials and colors fearlessly. It encourages being creative and taking part in the design process, by giving a chance to modify, amend, and embellish the garments according to one’s own taste and skills.
You can see details on all ten new patterns in the Named Patterns section of the Oliver + S shop.
