&OTHER STORIES LAUNCHES Savoir Collection SS24: Artistic Journey with Kirsty Hume
Savoir is & Other Stories limited collection honouring the know-how of its design ateliers with seasonal statement styles that push fashion forward. Inspired by Kirsty Hume’s journey from supermodel to artist, this season’s Savoir collection merges ’90s minimalism with the bold, the free and the forever feminine.
Kirsty Hume is the muse for the collection and the star of its fashion campaign, where her story is interwoven, providing a universal perspective on what it means to be a woman on an ongoing artistic journey.
“The vision for the collection was to embody the liberating essence of the infinite sky, emphasizing the correlation between freedom and creativity. What began as a canvas painting of a sunset sky evolved into a series of dresses, separates, and accessories cleverly crafted using high-quality fabrics and with utmost attention to detail.” Says Frida Billegren, Concept Designer.
The centre-piece of the collection is a column dress that showcases the sunset sky artwork. Despite its minimalist design, the dress is bold and expressive with painted strokes. This dress, along with its motif, sets the tone for the entire collection, inspiring other styles such as a voluminous sky-blue dress and a sunny-yellow dress featuring artful draping echoing the historical shapes of the 1930s and 40s.
The draping was reinterpreted across experimental denim styles, adding a modern edge to the fanciful creations. The collection also includes an array of translucent separates, rendered in a lavender pointelle knit and sage-green lace, which materialize the sheer, veil-like quality of clouds.
Savoir’s craftsmanship shines through in the luxurious minimalism of the garments and their intricate details. The accessories, such as handcrafted glass baubles strung on sterling silver and a sandal with a sculptural flower heel, showcase the same attention to detail and surrealistic flair. High-quality fabrics include a selection of sustainably sourced viscose, silk-like filament yarns known for their softness, lustre, and drape, as well as organic and recycled cotton.
