From the plains of the farm where I grew up in Koster, showcased in my previous collection Kraal Couture, where Ngunis graze freely in the hues of the African sun, we move to the depths of the African jungle. This was the inspiration for my AW22 collection, along with some of the art I have encountered during my travels, and my love for the baroque period.
Drawing on these three elements, my new collection was born. I created a print inspired by modern art together with my favourite shape: the human form. Exotic animals leap out from the depths of the jungle. Opulent pearls are used with abundance. The contrast of these different elements are woven into a tapestry to create a collection that tells a new story that represents my roots, my love for travel, art, and iconic time periods.
