Under the creative direction of Carli Pearson comes CIMONE, a new womenswear brand for 2016.
CIMONE combines irreverence and playfulness with haute styling, traditional techniques and craftsmanship, creating timeless pieces to be coveted and cherished for years to come. Modern materials and innovative production methods reinvent the familiar. CIMONE is luxury with a youthful spirit.
For the first time, Pearson is able to bring her extensive work history (including positions at Stella McCartney, Alexander Wang, Pucci, and McQ at Alexander McQueen) and varied influences under one roof. Her vision for CIMONE is a self-assured, forward thinking brand underpinned with integrity, with the studio functioning like an atelier of yesteryear. In addition, Pearson’s own contradictory persona is able to play out in full – melding raw experimentation with a polished aesthetic.
CIMONE is based in London, and works exclusively with specialist professionals, hand crafting and developing each garment in house. Underlying each piece is a strong emphasis on finesse, where every detail is carefully considered. Each item has been lovingly nurtured throughout each stage of production, and no compromises are made to achieve the highest quality.
AW2016 sees a cacophony of exaggerated proportions and graphic lines thrown off kilter by rich brocades in unexpected shapes. Designs are refabricated and layered to be worn alone or ensemble. Glossy smoked rubber is twinned with textured canvassing, layered to resemble a photographic negative that highlights construction. Heavily worked embroidery is hand laced from laser cut leather with a nod to Samurai armour.
