ECA graduate David Vallance

                                                                   David Vallance

  Over the years Godiva has been showcasing final year collections from many great talented ECA graduates and this collection from David Vallance is something a little different this year, from the usual colour and pattern explosions that normally hang from the rails in the showroom. It is a sleek and tailored contrast in Godiva and we are proud to have this fantastic work in store.

In his own words, "This collection is inspired by a recent trip to La Dune du Pilat in France, a place of contrasting environments. Through the use of contrasting fabrics, such as Satin Organza and Doe-Skin Wool, and combining new methods of pattern-cutting with classic tailoring - the collection manages to be structural yet wearable, soft yet hard creating the perfect sense of contrast."

You may not be able to tell by the black and grey photos, but the collection consists of very muted tones of fawn, brown, cream and of course black. The collection is made up of tailored fitted cotton and organza shirt dresses, an organza dress, leather shorts, suede culottes and a Doe Skin structured coat, which is a great piece. I especially love the suede culottes and the Rope belts are a wardrobe must. 

David's collection will be on sale until the end of the year so please do pop in and check it out.
