Denim, oiled leather, wool and oversized zips. Adding nakedness and cigarette smoke to all that, the concept of the Superfine Autumn/Winter 2011/12 collection is true to both Gypsy and Punk theme.
„The inspiration behind these pieces began with old images of Roma Gypsies“, said Lucy Pinter, Superfine founder. She searched for ways to combine old, used and ripped fabrics with Superfine fabric treatment ideas.
One of these new fabric treatments is called „The Ghost Treatment“. It is a very subtle idea, wich makes wool look like hard old cracked leather. The feel, however, is beautifully soft- a hard-to-achieve combination. An „other worldly“ appearance with Superfine written all over it.
The punk theme appears on the denims in the form of straps, buckles, D-rings and original punk prints made by the London fashion icon Judy Blame. Tons of wool are used for this collection, jackets, trousers and even dresses have a little splash of it. This is the gypsy side of the clothes.
Adding a little bit of silver shine to the collection, the „Rock and Rolling“ fabric is like a new shiny version of the tailored suit, definetly with a strong Superfine feel.
The british label, known for being pioneers of the skinny silhouette keeps growing and growing. This collection marks the continuous expansion of the brand, from concentrating solely on denim it evolved into an amazing ready to wear line.
