Zoe Carol – Autumn | Winter 2015
Zoë Carol is a Dublin based Fashion Designer. Her designs first caught my attention in Atelier 27. I’ve written and interviewed Zoë in the past for work published outside of The Life of Stuff but thought it about time I featured her work here and her Autumn | Winter 2015 collection is a great place to start.
Uncomplicated tailoring conveying a minimal, timeless modernity and lightness of touch. Zoë Carol is imagined, designed, and made in Dublin, Ireland.
Zoë Carol’s Autumn | Winter 2015 Collection is inspired by …
“three aspects of Spanish culture; Guerra Civil, Torero Juan José Padilla & Flamenco dance. These three starting points are activated by W. Eugene Smith’s photo essay entitled ‘Spanish Village’. This moving photographic portrait of daily life in rural Spain during the rule of dictator Francisco Franco first appeared in LIFE magazine in 1951. Smith’s photographs of life in the little village of Deleitosa reveal a simple community centred around the rituals of their Catholic church. The collection is built on a pared back silhouettes in a monochromatic palette with flashes of vibrant red. Asymmetric ruffles and hemlines inject drama echoing the movement of the traje de flamenca. Chiffon, brocade, and cashmere wool are combined in sympathetic yet unexpected ways.”
