CAITLIN PRICE SS17 / by Slow Waves

 

'For Spring/Summer 17 Caitlin Price's fascination with nightlife rituals moves onto 24/7 partying, exploring the relentless hedonism of young British women on group getaways. Here 'holiday best' style is amplified and abstracted, to create an image of artificial poolside opulence.'

'Price's deliberately OTT look this season is intended to play on the idea of aspirational hyper-reality.

Initially inspired by the graphic shapes and saturated tones of the villa set pieces in Jacques Tati's 1958 film Mon Oncle, parallels were subsequently drawn with computer-generated noughties club flyers, and the contemporary obsession with Instagram filters.

These influences are seen most clearly in the collections palette, where candy pastels and punchy chemical brights feature heavily.'

'Throughout the collection, Price's signature mix of body-conscious club wear and relaxed sportswear has been used to chart a day through night transition.'
