Iceberg AW15

Creative director Federico Curradi gets inspired by the colours of Jean-Michel Basquiat and the streets of Brooklyn and Japan

Initial reaction:

Williamsburg via Japan: the sloping shoulders of padded kimono-cut coats took us east, whilst brushed plaid, ankle grazing chinos and brogues came lifted from the Brooklyn neighbourhood’s resident hipsters.

A Basquiat palette:

“I really love how [Jean-Michel Basquiat] mixed colour,” Iceberg creative director Federico Curradi revealed of his key collection inspirations. “Colour from the city, colour from nature. I tried to do the same with the yarns.” The Brooklyn-born artist’s influence was evident in the earthy brown, moss and navy clashed with acidic yellow and vermillion in the plaid, stripe and zig-zag felted knits. 

Surface play:

Camel, cashmere and mohair yarns, felted and brushed together, lent the collection a distinctly homespun feel, the fuzzy textures irresistible to touch.
