ALC’s Spring Summer 2018 collection embodies the sense of nostalgia felt by Amanda when she is near the ocean; “Swimming in the sea and floating on my back just beyond the break, looking up at the sky and experiencing the changes and repeated pattern of the rhythms of the waves…”
This feeling shines through in the serenity of ALC’s colour palette, which comprises of naturals, whites, black, navy, as well as shades of green and blue. This vividness is highlighted by the sweeping texture in our signature print. ALC wanted there to be visible movement as the garments are worn and lived in. They have predominantly used linens, cottons and rayons, with the addition of Shweshwe, checks, stripes, chambrays and dobby cottons.
The garment details are minimal, considered and functional. The silhouettes are expressive, soft and voluminous, and the styling is layered yet retains a level of simplicity and sophistication.
The collection was presented at South African Fashion Week on 11 April 2018 in Johannesburg, and will be available to shop online and at The Space stores later this year
