For Wiggy, it all comes back to fabric, texture and print. This season, we looked to the lake houses of the Adirondacks, the coastal sail lofts and beach cottages of New England and the wide open prairies of the midwest.
This years collection of fabrics are heavily influenced by these inspirational locations.
Our newest ‘Bleach Splatter Print’ references Wiggy’s obsession for artisanal, hand-crafted, well- loved and worn-in fabrics which tell a story their own right. This beautiful soft rumpled linen is both washed out and then ‘destroyed’ giving each piece a feeling of individuality and an heirloom quality to each garment. It began with the idea of a weather-beaten indigo sailcloth ‘damaged’ by bleach and then re-purposed; in this case as a wrap skirt and a throw over dress.
Vintage Bandana’s have seemingly been joined to create our stunning ‘Bandana Print’ and then gently aged to achieve a perfectly imperfect and antiqued feel.
The beautiful Japanese technique of Indigo dying called Shibori as well as the exquisite sewing and darning technique called Sashiko - a age old tradition utilised to repair or reinforce well-loved or worn-out clothing - has been printed on our signature soft linen. Our ‘Cloud Print’ draws inspiration from the endless skies above the prairies often seen for miles.
Crisp and fresh Seersuckers continue to be seen throughout the collection as well as our signature slubbed linen chambrays, in the prettiest hues. Ecru Cotton Canvas and mis-registered irregular block prints round out the story of this season. Combining the unexpected with our beautifully cut and always flattering shapes. Designed to be treasured for years to come.
We hope you will feel just as inspired when you wear them.
