Elise Overland Autumn Winter 2008 Pre Fashion Week Studio Visit

A/W 08: Pre-Fashion Week Studio Visit With Elise Overland


Last week, designer Elise Overland showed us around her studio and spoke to us about her A/W 08 collection. Overland will be drawing from Ski (a large 1970's era photograph of her father skiing poised in the middle of her inspiration board) and dance clothing in order to balance masculine and feminine elements and experiment with utility-based garments in a ready to wear context. The collection will also include special hardware (though how it will manifest, we shall have to see) inspired by antique pieces she's collected from all over the world. Overland's aesthetic is very much of the jetset boheme, when entering her studio one feels as though they've stepped into Miss Havisham's boudoir where stacks of records, plush chairs, and worldly treasures trivialize everyday obligations.
