AW11 – KNITWEAR BY ELECTRONIC SHEEP
In this new collection for AW11, Electronic Sheep develop their signature graphic style with
patterns and forms inspired by the notion of an idle life of splendour.
With a characteristically bold use of pattern and colour, and featuring titles like ‘Tartan Theory’,
‘The Planet Garden’, ‘The Alchemist’s Foxtrot’, and ‘Eccentricity City’, the complex and often
contradictory visual collages incorporated into these scarves, hoods and hats suggests the eclectic,
creative play of the unbounded imagination. A new addition to their range of accessories, a hooded
cape, is the result of an inspired collaboration with maverick DJing duo The Broken Hearts.
But where is this house, and who inhabits its many mansions? Is it the shabby glamour of Turner’s
Powis Square pile in Roeg’s Performance, the hermetically sealed retreat of the listless Duc des
Esseintes in Huysmans’ notorious Against Nature, or the spangled dreamlike ‘world’ of the
distracted movie starlet in Anger’s Puce Moment?
