Description

Carole Waller handpainted silk velvet kaftan ‘Glider’

The ‘Glider’ collection was inspired by walking the Malvern Hills and looking at the texture of the English landscape. The hills look out at Wales to the West, Warwickshire and Worcestershire to the East and you can see both ways from the topmost ridge. Paragliders watch, wait and launch into the air. The clean clear colours of the fabric wings floating in the atmosphere above green, rusts and greys of the countryside is captivating to watch, and informed the ideas in this collection. This piece evokes the texture of landscape with its overlapping fields of subtle colour. The velvet is all enveloping – soft, fluid and heavy.

Colours here are blacks, browns, peach and greys.

Dry clean.
