Inspired by the concept of Hackney as seen through a prism of magical realism, Antipodium's Living In Eclectic Dreams collection captures the romantic idealisation of a fabled Hackney from a bygone age and its transition into a magical wonderland of high-rise buildings, jungles of scaffolding and sharp edges and elbows.
Antipodium have developed two prints around the concept of a Hackney Pegasus - one is called ‘Floating Pegasus’ (an expanded abstracted series of vectors) and the other ‘Hackney Pegasus’ (a riff on an origami Pegasus that also links to other ‘wireframe’ prints). Whilst the ‘Hackney Spot’ print offers snapshots of iconic landmarks, graffiti and people from the area.
For SS16, Antipodium have worked with renowned print designer Luke Mclean and also developed prints in-house as a collaborative process with the new team. Luke worked on the Hackney Spot for Antipodium this season, and will continue collaborating for special projects. This season Antipodium mixes an urban sportswear vibe with classic Antipodium silhouettes, replacing knitwear with technical mesh solutions and technical sweat shirting from Japan; continuing with the bomber jacket as a core silhouette of the Antipodium style, fit & flare skirts, silk t-shirts with Antipodium signature prints.
