For Spring/Summer 2016, the Opening Ceremony woman travels the world without leaving the most captivating place of all: her home. Surrounding herself with beautiful objects, she mixes contemporary and found, familiar and exotic, clean-lined and ornate. Her wardrobe is an extension of her dwelling. Loose silhouettes and sumptuous fabrics are shaped by mid-century modern geometry, while decorative objects lovingly arranged inspire prints on kimonos and tunics. This isn’t just any home, but a dream home, where the domestic sphere becomes a playground.
Drawing on our passion for travel, the Spring/Summer 2016 collection nurtures eclectic cultural influences. Plunging necklines recall Moorish arches, while batik motifs on cotton dresses and tops mimic African throws. On an intarsia dress, interlacing checkerboard panels echo the art of basket weaving. Fabrics like crisp linen, brushed cotton, and textured crepe are natural and lightweight, perfect for an afternoon at home or a faraway excursion. A palette of sylvan neutrals—sycamore, dark brown, burnt orange, teal, gamboge—highlights organic textures. Jacquard skirts and loose lounge pants are finished to resemble tree bark, while custom brass concave buttons on anoraks and midi-skirts imitate the curving forms of wooden sculpture.
