THE BRAND: French designer,Manon Planche graduated from the University of Westminster in 2018.
Her graduate collection was shown during LFW AW18 and now is ready to strike back the new season with an intergalatic new collection.
Manon Planche creates unapologetic, bold printed and textured pieces.Drawing inspiration from observations of alternative methods of transport and their existential operators; the collection takes you on a ride to the next galaxy. From custom motorcycles, to drag racing cars and vintage jet skis Planche’s creations are influenced by unthinkable activities, conducted by equally daring people; as daring as those who wear the standout designs.
This season: Manon Planche returns to themes of transport with aerobatics.Pieces are replicating smoke trails and dynamic flight paths, translated within prints and fabrics. The fabric is twisted and gathered around the body; following the winding directions of plane maneuvers. A mix of printed silk and organza creates draped silhouettes, replicating clouds, smoke and the sky.
Heavier pieces stem from materials and metals, sparking standout shiny textures. These pieces reflect the plane outer construction which is made of rectangular metal sheets that are curved and riveted together. Some pieces are also inspired by the cockpit and the wings of the planes.
Finally, panelling is used throughout on the pieces to reference the classic pilots’ outfits.
The recent fashion graduate has been cited as ‘one to watch’ by Vogue Italy after great success in AW18.
