"The tree-tops are soft as velvet, and in the evening, at Twilight, are all bejewelled with tiny mauve, and blue, and white lights. The mauve ones are boy fairies, the white, girl fairies, and the blue lights are darling little sillies who are not quite sure what they are."
‘The Story of Peter Pan’, J.M Barrie
In celebration of magnificent creatures — not only imagined, but to Charles Jeffrey, very real — he began devising a collection for those whom he loves, enlivened by glittering references to Lost Boys, Warhol’s' Factory stars, and the Lord of the Flies. And so, to the creation of a dystopian utopia where love, and pleasure, and kindness, are the only laws.
The collection itself is an illustrative reimagining of the 1920s and its androgynous Bright Young Things. The long, lean flatness of Art Deco fashion plates is echoed by dropped waists, lengthened silhouettes, hand-drawn prints, and twin-stitched tailoring.
