For AW17 the designer Jenevieve Lyons seems to have delved into her archive for inspiration. I caught up with her via email for a preview of her latest collection. Expect a combination of previous ideas revisited, summarized and retold to tell a new story. The collection which is titled “de·frag·mented [undated]” will be showcased on Friday 3 November at SA Menswear Week in Cape Town.
Thus will be the story of the somewhat once told – a revisit to what was sometime known. Many ideas amalgamate at once – but little is only said about thus once; why not twice or thrice. In a time we live, where human destruction is played off by self, we aim to pull together what was once seen to create a.new – a revisited place in a slight different sense. It may be many things at once or simply one at none.
Thus is not to be worn nor adorned; yet to be festooned upon while floating off on a journey of the defragmented stories.
