Vanishing Elephant Spring/Summer 2013 Collection Lookbook
In their own words, this new season comes at somewhat of a crossroads for Australian men’s and women’s label Vanishing Elephant; an ongoing feeling of evolution and a debate over combining what they love with what is practical. There was an overriding desire to create a collection of concise individual pieces that stand alone but also chime into an overall collection, anchored by colour, detail and silhouette.
After a sell-out women’s debut, this sophomore collection continues to explore this relatively new territory for the label. An increase in tailoring, worked back with light silks and fine merino knits, delivers a visually self-assured offering of strong separates and functional outerwear. Notable additions to the men’s line up include fine selvedge slim straight jeans, cotton outerwear and military inspired shapes. Vanishing Elephant’s ever-present blockbuster prints are again at the forefront, with custom art featured across both the men’s and women’s ranges.
Fundamental to the Vanishing Elephant aesthetic is that marriage of elements across the men’s and women’s lines – particularly evident in colour, fabrication and highlight styles from matching leather biker jackets to classic tailoring.
As always, Vanishing Elephant ensures a constant conversation with its customer to consistently deliver product that people not only want to wear, but will be able to wear in their everyday lives.
