CAUTION FW1718 by Cunnington & Sanderson

1 Cunnington & Sanderson the coat dress


Silent field sculpture’s
Surrounded by space filled with stillness
Time continues, with movement only from the endless shifting silhouettes.
Multi layered loose fabrics, patterns and objects are blown together by the wind into
asymmetric structures.
Bodyless three dimentional clothes become 2 dimentional,
deconstructed shirts appear hollow, empty and souless.
No structure remains, only frialty and detailing of what once was.
Unwanted plastic bags are refined into permanent pockets.
There is only one purpose,
to protect.
Warning flashes of yellow with engulfing void of black,
small, medium & large checks combined enhances confusion and distortion.
Beware of bellowing volume that transfigure when worn,
reinforced horizontal shoulder lines, drape with form,
Expressionless faces hide all emotions.

Cunnington & Sanderson story began whilst studying Fashion Design at the University of Central England. Their shared love of draping ‘the new’ onto the mannequin is the foundation of their creative spirit.
