In todays cultural climate the touch of a button can be the answer to all our questions. However this instantaneous accumulation of information means we tend not to absorb and understand the functions and inner workings of the systems that support us. Within my collection I have sought to replicate the balance between the mechanical precision of an automobile engine and the way in which this translates into adrenaline fuelled speed within a race car.
Through out history the automobile has maintained a luxury status and masculinity that is mirrored in the attitude and rebellion of King of Cool, Steve McQueen. An abstraction of panelling, vibrant colour combinations, engaging textiles and the translation of speed through print combine to create a collection that is visually stimulating and encompasses exhilarating rebellion with consideration and care.
