Theatre de la Mode introduces “Polvareda’ for spring/summer 2012. The collection is inspired by the dust track roads across the desert regions of Mexico. The passing scenes and the dusty trail reveal a multitude of colour and form that spark a graphic and concise range for spring/summer 2012.
Fabrics incorporate raw linens, featherweight jersey, cotton canvas and a loose weave cotton knit jersey. Autumn/winter 2011’s brushed cotton tartan has been reintroduced in a lightweight version for spring/summer. Fabric blending is at the core of the collection with jersey, rib and tartan in the Rib-yoke shirt.
The classic Theatre de la Mode Bellow sweat is reworked into a jacket combining canvas and cotton sweat. Other pieces include a printed slim sweat pant, the T-cut shirt, Biker sweat and the Elastic-waist tailored trouser.
Spring/summer 2012’s print makes a bold statement using clean, monochrome shapes fashioned from the collection’s South American roots. Colours in the range feature dusty stone, golden beige, rich khaki, rusty tan, washed-out grey with navy and emerald tartan accents.
There is a natural ease throughout the collection that fuses fabric and pattern alongside Theatre de la Mode’s customary mix of tailored casual wear. Bleached out tones on a hot summers day personify the collection’s lightweight nature.
