For the Aje design duo, having grown up in this coastal realm, the collection is a nostalgic and irreverent reflection of the tone of the times - one of freedom, extravagance, curiosity and individuality.
People lived loud and proud within a unique melting pot of surf culture, bright city lights, fast cars, fast boats, sun, sparkle and glitz.
The collection riffs on this playful, liberated mood, a collision of the kitsch and fabulous.
Sculptural wavelike silhouettes meet hand-painted prints in fluid silk styles, inspired by hyper-colour t-shirts, 90’s checks, and floral board shorts.
Sorbet-coloured linens and laser-cut detailing juxtapose bold colour blocking, strong 90’s shoulders and white denim with custom gold hardware.
There’s a little subtlety, and a lot of wow.
Vice is a mood, a feeling, an attitude.
