Tom Gallant continued his collaboration on the print collection for A/W’18 as well as the imagery for embroidery.  The artwork took inspiration from Ernst Haeckel's illustrations of nature and deep sea creatures.

Following his own meticulous approach to research and digital preparation of artworks Tom has been developing the story that will articulate the concept for visual components as well as provide a provocative and profound language to be shown alongside the collections.

Sirens were known to be dangerous creatures who lured sailors to their fate, they were said to be the companions of young Persephone; given wings by Demeter to search for her when she was abducted. Illustrations of siphonophores and other deep sea creatures that lure their prey create an enchanting scene with hidden depths.

The queen of the underworld gives rise to the ceremonies around harvest, change of seasons and its cycles. Sleepwear is the bridge between two realities of night and day; this collection uses that relationship in both medium and message.
