Our Farah Spring / Summer collection has arrived, and we are so excited to share it with you. We wanted to share with you a little background about the inspiration of this collection, and some key pieces in this collection.
27th May, 1990, Widnes, Cheshire, England. This is the date that witnessed music history in the making as The Stone Roses played SPIKE ISLAND; a gig steeped in as much history for its shambolic organisation, poor sound quality and lack of loos as it is for its cult status in providing the blue print for everything that would happen going forward in the 90s.
As 27,000 fans descended onto a crammed field surrounded by chemical factories, Spike Island was to become The Stone Roses’ defining statement, not only of their success but in the regeneration of an entire youth culture and it is that, which Farah bases its SS22 range upon.
With a colour palette born out of 90s casual wear, vibrant reds are mixed with washed out charcoals; military greens with a raw umber - reminiscent of those famed jackets - and brighter tones of jade green mix with pink to bring this collection to life for Spring/Summer 22.
Key stories for the season include:
1. The Lemon Print: Inspired by the iconic print T-shirt from their 1989 tour, they have simplify its essence, playing with scales and placement and it’s applied to swim shorts, a short sleeve revere shirt and also a chest placement graphic tee.
2. Colour Block: Referencing an image of John Squire wearing a colour block polo, we take this into sweats, T-shirts and polos. Utilising colours from our bespoke palette, this simplistic design reference creates a visually compelling story.
3. Over-shirts: Casual fitting, loose silhouette shirts were a staple in any 90s wardrobe. They played with fabrications, prints and detailing to bring a broad and engaging offer from camo prints to checks, twills and ripstops.
