DESIGN INSPIRATION: PAPUA NEW GUINEA AND THE PRIMITIVE MAN October 21 2014

For my current collection, launched for Autumn Winter 2014, once more travel has played an important part as inspiration for the design.

A visit to Papua New Guinea was perfect to get creativity flowing. With its immense cultural diversity, it is one of the few places on Earth that remain true to its tribal origins (only a small percentage of their population live in urban centres). It is considered one of the least explored countries in the world, and one of the most varied, with hundreds of ethnic groups.

The Modern Primitive collection looks at the tribal and primitive man for inspiration and explores an element that is central to this cultural lifestyle, which is the arrow.

Both a tool and a weapon, the arrowhead became the central element to the collection, reworked with a modern feel to be worn casually or dressed up.
