‘Colour Me In’ is an award-winning fashion project by IED Barcelona graduate Edward Cuming.
Young fashion designer from Australia expressed his take on prison culture and geometrical-concrete architecture of 1970s.
His inspiration has a strong base in patterns, fortress-like features and uniforms. For his collection, he disrupted these aspects with soft pastel palettes and color blocking, which provide a contemporary outcome for his SS15 line.
The collection results in straight-cut silhouette of uniform garments combined with unusual palette features. Strong details can be noticed on accessories as well as where color tag similar to duck tape is taking over. In addition, the combination of fabrics and black contour lines over garment gives a playful vibe to all that seriousness.
