Maison Scotch – Key Looks AW2105


FALL / WINTER 2015 – 2016
This season Maison Scotch captures the essence of the swinging
60’s and dazzling 70’s with a collection that crosses from
nouveau bohemian to electric mod to the last days of disco.
The first delivery begins with an ode to wandering spirits with
a treasure trove of eclectic inspiration from around the world.
Folk craftsmanship elevates everyday pieces like jackets into
covetable embellished pieces. The contrast is turned up when
romance and rebellion collide pairing feminine silhouettes with
military inspired items. The mood slips into a jazzy beat of the
60’s with a playful interpretation of downtown mod with a riot
of tactile textures from bouclé to teddy fur. Finally, there is an
opportunity to shine in glittering disco dresses in sumptuous
materials with plunging necklines.
Imagine the wardrobe of an enigmatic adventuress living in
a world that is threaded together from bohemian myths and
vintage treasures from exotic lands. Our romantic traveller
has traversed the globe many times over gathering inspiration
from heirloom tapestries to antique wallpaper florals. A variety
of silhouettes reflect her laid-back mood like the drapey
embroidered blouse or the quilted Japanese kimono. A rhapsody
of glittering embellishments is brought into balance with sporty
elements to give this delivery an overall modern feel. The palette
is a muted interpretation of autumn hues with old rosewood,
sumptuous inky blues and an unexpected pop of bubblegum.
Abandon the urban uniform that’s for girls who play by the
rules; march out of step instead to rouse the femme rebelle
within. Test new ground and let rebellion run wild. Explore
notions of soft romance with flirty embroidered textiles and
spills of frills. Engage your rebellious side with tough military
inspired pieces from sharply tailored jackets to brushed woolly
knits. We explore the great outdoors with blanket inspired
checks on large oversized coats and create unexpected contrast
with distorted combat print over shimmery lurex jacquards or
leather teamed with lace. The colour palette features a legion
of army hues from hunter green to khaki with softer tones of
dainty buttercup yellow mixed with rich bursts of Mars red.
Let’s go back to the last days disco, where white was the colour
of the night and everything dazzled in silver and gold. Take
Bianca Jagger circa Studio 54 as your style inspiration for
outlandish outfit ideas that made history in the glittering era of
the 70’s. Choose sequins, lamé and head-spinning silhouettes
that are made for making a grand entrance and parading around
on dance floors. An evening look would not be complete
without a sensuous dress with a plunging neckline or alluring
fringed details that can shimmy along with the rhythm of the
night. A classic take on disco dressing is seen with elegant
scarf blouses paired with menswear pieces such as tailored
jackets and pants. The mandatory metallic palette is matched
by classic black, white and vibrant pops of cranberry.
Welcome to London in the swinging 60’s: hot jazz, miniskirts,
and bold optical prints. The modern retro vibe of this delivery
takes inspiration from pop culture when it was at its best. We
see confident modern silhouettes like roll neck sweaters and
strong yet sexy draped silk shirts. A dose of good humour brings
back 60’s nostalgia with vintage ski colour blocking in tees and
sweaters. The biker jacket, which is reworked in a playful teddy
fur is a witty interpretation of the eclectic youth culture of the
mod era. With graphic prints and plenty of black and white,
there is also a contemporary palette of soft blues, pale pinks and
rich aubergine hues.
