Harvest: A homage to the natural
The new SS18 apparel & jewellery collection by Pichulik is a celebration of the power and meaning of cycles in life and in nature.
“As women, we are strongly attuned to the meaning of cycles”
Designer Katherine-Mary explains: “The collection began at the end of last summer when I gathered shells, pebbles and pieces of driftwood on the beach. As we moved into winter, I began considering the bounty of foraging and reaping the rewards of cycles that exist both in us and in nature, and researched ancient harvest festivals in Christian, Islamic, Jewish and pagan cultures.
Although each had their own rituals and symbols, all contained elements of ceremony, music, dancing and feasting
as an expression of gratitude for being allowed to enjoy the abundance brought about through one’s own efforts.”
And so in this collection the materials, shapes and finishes that make up the garments and jewellery strongly reflect the luxury and pure pleasure one finds in nature.
Launching online and in store mid October 2017, I definitely have my eye on several pieces.
