New talent, new deisgner: Corrie Nielsen, a Central Saint Martins graduate, has been successfully showcasing her collections for the past seven seasons.
For this Spring/Summer 2015 she presents The Single Girl collection; the 1960s woman that was freed from the constraints of previous fashions that controlled the feminine body through external means.
Corrie Nielsen’s S/S 2015 collection mirrors this transformation and growth of a woman’s physical, social, emotional and economical strength.
Corrie’s women have the intensity and boldness for change and yet appear to be too young to understand the difference. Their shapes and curvatures align with the almost sculptural, free flowing forms of 1960s furniture and wallpaper design.
The colours and fabrics that make up this collection are inextricably linked to the 1960s girl who embodied the feeling of the culture at the time. Dark brown satin above latex pants, beige duchess satin layered with off white tulle subtly embellished with beadwork demonstrate the progressive female liberation of the decade. Corrie has taken icons such as Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot and used their inherent physical and emotional presence and strength, to develop a collection that is as wearable as it is pleasurable.
