Charlie May X Eleven Everything

26.09.2014 | Fashion | BY:

For Autumn/Winter 2014, Charlie May, the womenwear designer with a minimal and monochrome sensibility, called upon knitwear specialists Eleven Everything to create stunning wooly pieces to add to her collection of elegant androgyny. “I’ve admired Kathryn [the designer behind Eleven Everything] and her work for some time,” states May, “so when we met through a mutual friend it was the perfect opportunity to work together. I had been wanting to explore knitwear and the process behind it for my own collections and Kathryn was keen to explore womenswear, so it was a natural collaboration that took form.”

Taking inspiration from the textures of Dartmoor, Devon, the rugged, windswept environment is reflected in her use of pony hair and Mongolian furs. “I was super excited seeing the swatch/sampling process, so many beautiful merino wool styles to choose from but we went with chunky polo’s with long sleeves and origami wrap skirts. The focus is completely on the fabrication in my view, the texture of the rib stands out so beautifully.”

Charlie May AW14 is on sale now at Charlie May x Eleven Everything is available at Celestine Eleven in store and online from October.
