Original Penguin’s latest collection celebrates iconic pioneers, with a special nod to the creative wordsmiths, daring poets and passionate artists owning the New York streets during the 50s. Celebrating creative minds and their anti-uniform style.
The collection is simple and clean; shaken up by modern and unique styles with subtle touches like tone-on-tone textures, saturated oil and washed-out watercolors within prints.
The first trend of the collection brings ‘The Art of Style’ to the forefront, taking inspiration from the famous, dynamic American artist; Jackson Pollock.
Pollock is best known for seeing the potential of letting paint have its own mind; the range features bold splatted art on iconic classics such as the reversible bomber and woven chambray shirt, energising transeasonal pieces.
The second trend of the collection taps into the rich counterculture of vintage NYC street style. Inspired by Soho’s satire and toughness of the Bowery Boys of the early-mid-19th century. Nep and plush hand fabrics are incorporated to give a cosy update to classic styles. Expect soft and luxurious textures; plus the collection adds a twist to the everyday beloved essentials like sueded knits, brushed flannels and the cosy teddy bear style sherpa.
Original Penguin AW 17 Collection is available in Arnotts and selected stores nationwide and online at originalpenguin.co.uk.
