ABOUT THE COLLECTION | AUTUMN WINTER 2013
Patternity have joined forces with iconic knitwear specialists Chinti and Parker in an exciting new collaboration for Autumn Winter 2013. Combining Patternity’s award-winning pattern exploration and designs with Chinti and Parker’s timeless shapes and commitment to sustainable style, the collection serves as a mutual celebration of pattern, its inspiring presence within our everyday environments and its ability to positively engage us.
The 28-piece collection in black, navy, mint and cream sees Patternity remix Chinti and Parker’s signature stripes and dots across a range of simple tee, dress, sweater and cardigan styles for pieces that strike an artful balance of and cutting-edge vision.
The collection also introduces bold gridded patterns and tessellated geometrics. Whether applied as continuous pattern, enlarged and abstracted or reduced to a subtle outline, they demonstrate Patternity’s innovative eye, a point that is complemented yet further by Chinti and Parker’s confidence in
creating elegant, pared-back garment shapes with enduring appeal.
