Morpho + Luna commissioned Gallant to develop a design narrative and research direction to inform print and embroidery techniques for their range of luxury nightwear. Tom Gallant continued his collaboration on the print collection for S/S’18 as well as the imagery for embroidery. The artwork took inspiration from visions of paradise, from Henri Rousseau's jungles to Jacques Barraband's 18th century illustrations for birds of paradise.
Gallant's own work combines a design vernacular, intensive research and an attention to detail. A strong use of pattern and a conceptual approach to the use of symbols and motifs reflects Morpho + Luna’s own style ideas and the founders’ backgrounds.
Gallant first created a background narrative in order to ground the future seasons with a conceptual base and through linking mythologies to the name strengthen the brand’s identity. From this reference point a consistent and open manual ties fashion with art and history helping to create a brand style that is in constant motion yet rooted to core values of the Morpho + Luna brand.
