BARCELONA, Apr 6, 2009 / FW/ — Contrary to short-lived and superficial trends, an aim for the future should be to achieve high-quality pieces that can be handed down from one generation to another, counteracting the current throwaway culture.
With all of the knowledge and state-of-the-art technology available today, it should be possible to produce garments of the same quality that was possible up until the sixties.
With these thoughts in mind, Cecilia Sorensen launched a collection entitled “Generations.” Researching themes such as heritage, continuity, family and traditions, roots, rituals, genes, DNA, molecules and, finally, the pieces that really are handed down from one generation to another are the classics.
New interpretations and versions of timeless classics: the trench coat, the little black dress, the twinset, chinos, the biker jacket, the blazer, jeans, pyjamas, the cigarette pant, the smoking, the golf sweater and, of course, the classic men’s shirt.
All of the fabrics are natural, such as wool crepe, cotton twill gabardine, cotton velvet, viscose jersey and a silk/ cotton checked fabric, the reverse of which is used for a sheer effect.
Timeless colours such as black, grey and khaki are combined with tones of light blue, gold and lavender.
The idea for the collection presentation is a video/short film rather than a fashion show.
