COLLECTION| Fam Irvoll S/S13
Playful illustrations of grandma's adorned jumpers, skirts and dresses; candy stripes, and block pastels were the main choice of primary palette for Fam Irvoll's Spring/ Summer offering. Chiffon and lace piqued the playfulness, whilst bringing the feminine element forward.
The 50’s shone through this collection; Fam’s whimsical, childhood elements are still a firm inspiration in her designs. White sheer skirts, with cut-out shapes matched woolen jumpers- all printed with retro illustrations. The line work and attention to detail within the illustrations brought out the lightness of Fam’s knits.
Irvoll included blazers, and fitted pencil skirts, adding a level of sophistication to the collection, allowing the audience to enjoy her Spring/ Summer pieces. The highlight of Fam’s collection was the playfulness, and endless imagination encapsulated in each of her pieces. As well as grandma faces- poodles, bows, and hearts were all printed against contrasting stripes, and straight-cut trousers. Fam really produced a collection that struck everyone watching, captivating them with a vast array of colour, prints and embellishment. Adding to her "Grandma" theme, Fam appropriately chose complimenting accessories, consisting of fluffy heels, and flat slippers.
