Auralee SS23 - Deceptively Essential
“Simplicity can be deceitful - deeper truths are often hidden under strata of feelings. In the same way, the honesty of a simple garment can reveal at closer inspection a more complex construction.”
The Spring-Summer 2023 men’s and women’s collection of Auralee continues their tradition of simple, elegantly made clothes with unique and luxurious fabrics, but with a sporty twist. Brightly coloured anoraks, drawstring shorts, and heavy rucksacks contrast the subdued, relaxed tailoring, providing the collection with a playful mix of textures, shapes, and styles.
Mixing typical summer-weight fabrics like cotton and linen with more surprising ones like cashmere and mohair, all developed in-house, make for what Auralee calls “a versatile edit of non-pareil, unique materials, suitable for a variety of climates conditions and occasions.”
The looks themselves play with proportions, layering sheer mohair tops over button-ups, or voluminous duster coats over tropical wool suiting. By merging all of these elements together, Auralee’s latest collection shows a new, vibrant angle of their modest and elegant vision.
