SPRING SUMMER 2022
MEN’S & WOMEN’S COLLECTION
The airy lightness of open spaces, the beautiful comfort of being surrounded by nature. The calming rhythm of water.
The transparency of tender foliage.
A feel for the outdoors infuses Auralee’s SS22 collection. Serene and subdued, yet nevertheless vibrant with an undertone of bright vitality. A slightly rough, energetic edge runs counter to youthful sophistication; comfortable shapes are designed with elegant clarity and a sense of purpose.
Outerwear is slender and breezy; proportions are gentle. Tailoring is supple, soft and made in the finest, high-quality original fabrications. The delicate, refined artisanal touch of hand-sewn finishing on wool coats and cotton sporty blousons convey authenticity and honesty.
Consistency in researching the finest raw materials and developing the best original fabrics remains crucial to Auralee’s design ethos: Herringbone-woven light cashmere coveralls are individually dyed in beautiful, transparent gradient colors, as not to alter the featherlight smoothness of the rare Mongolian yarn. A duck canvas is made of 100% Mino Washi (Japanese Paper) from Gifu Prefecture and translated into cool slacks, boxy shirts and comfy all-in-ones.
Knits are light and dry-textured, as in cotton cropped vests and tops layered over shirts; airy yet textured cardigans and button up shirts are crocheted in cotton, hand-knit in open-work from a combination of multicount yarns; cotton linen is cut into shaggy cardigans for a textured yet fluffy feel. The softness of velour and terry cloth subtly highlights a hint of elegant, discreet sensuality, revealed also by halter neck dresses and bandeaux worn on bare skin.
Styling is individual and distinctive, yet considered: a soft-tailored blazer in tropical wool, worn with a pair of cool loose-fitting shorts.
Colors are subtle yet vibrant: Almond green, light khaki, dusty pink, pale blue. They harmonize beautifully with the organic beauty of nature and with its quiet power to soothe as much as to energize and inspire.
