Our Biophilia collection is the reaction to our screen-dominated world. As we become further inundated with technology, our desire for a connection with nature grows. Design will be homegrown rather than manufactured. Farm-to-table principles will venture further than the table as locally sourced materials for apparel, home, and other product categories become more important. Color is entirely influenced by the outdoors, particularly dawn and dusk when the cool shades of the earth are awash with the bright autumn sun.
Pattern and print design take a softer, more organic look. Mineral formations, natural textures, and defined leaves and stems bring our Biophilia collection together.
Our designers fell in love with this archive. It comes from an antique art book full of gorgeous marble and natural textures- all in this interesting shade of blue. Other pieces from the book depict leaf rubbings, ocean-inspired paintings, and organic flora.
There are more AW17 collections to come from the Baxter Mill Archive! Stay tuned.
