ESCAPE OF THE NIGHTINGALE MENG S/S17

ILS_web_Mcpete Sez
Introducing the MENG S/S 17 women’s loungewear collection. Drawing on the folk stories of China and Europe, we celebrate personal freedom and the natural world through a collection of intricately printed silk pajamas, kimonos, robes and kaftans. Each is embellished with our signature handdrawn artwork and dazzling colour palette in a series of luxurious, supremely comfortable designs.

INSPIRATION
The Eastern princess, coveted for her beauty in the gilded cage of the Emperor’s palace, breaks the bounds of ritual to join with the sky, the air and nature. Lanterns, throne and portraits are replaced with dance, movement and play.
The story is reflected through a contrast of silhouettes, prints and hues that move between the formal and free, as mix and match pieces create a sense of personal expression.

PRINTS
Our original hand-drawn artworks bloom into life as prints and jacquard weaves. Discover cherry blossoms, fantastical song birds, polka dots and psychedelic chrysanthemums – some in neat repeats, others wild and gloriously free.

FABRICS & COLOURS
Cloths include silk jacquard, smooth silk satin and sheer georgette. A reflective and introspective palette contrasts with softly feminine hues and bright dream colours. Deep burgundy and teal, cool cream, silver grey and seafoam, are accented with terracotta red, rose and a myriad of blues.

SHAPES
Pyjamas, kimonos, long and short robes and kaftans are framed with contrast colour and print edgings and linings.
