His deserted beaches with empty playgrounds evoked faded childhood memories and inspired the muted and washed colour palette; coral, brown, yellow, sand, grey and metallics.
Sama’s retrospective reverie took her from the purity of childhood to the feeling of rebellion and irreverence intrinsic to adolescence; which for her was spent preoccupied with Peter Lindberg’s iconic imagery for Italian Vogue.
The naivety of childhood is represented in the merino wool knitwear with delicate cotton lace collars and cotton net blouses with miniature collars. The shirting too, supersized as if worn by a child, with extra long sleeves, is reminiscent of youth. Her signature teddy-bear fur story this season is in softer tones, like a comforting toy.
The shoulder is on show; either symmetrically or asymmetrically, the garments are constructed to look as if they are slipping off, suspended by knitted tape straps.
Sama strives to curate a wardrobe that all women can delve into. Her aesthetic lying between the sartorially spontaneous tomboy and the glamorous older woman, for whom style is always considered. She deftly blends these propositions, drawing from the silhouettes of the 70’s and attitude of the 90’s; creating a collection, which is sharper, more defined and closer to the body than seasons past.
