Charles Harbison paces upon tranquil visions of zen gardens, drawing influence from Jazz patroness Pannonica de Koenigswarter, American artist Brice Marden and performing arts tour de force Erykah Badu, for his namesake label’s SS15 collection.
Tackling the complex concept of life’s dualities, the collection is a delectable amalgamation of colour blocking, silk crepe floral detailing, curious print work and almost androgynous silhouettes. Drawing together both masculine and feminine elements in a cornucopia of tailored serenity. Fit for the inquisitive, adventurous modern woman.

for tailoring.” For more.
