Sourced Vintage: Statement textures for AW23/4 as consumers look to dress up again
Sourced Vintage Studio is a trend-led vintage inspiration studio based in South East London that curates influential collections of antique and vintage garments, print references and embellishment swatches ready to be used in design direction. Sourced worldwide with a contemporary viewpoint the collection is ever-changing and ever-inspiring.
Led by trend forecaster Claire Foster, the studio primarily works with professionals in the fashion and interiors industry internationally from luxury houses to mass retailers.
For the AW23/24 season she has pulled collections around grass-roots homestead themes that integrate crafted details, natural dyes, patchwork, heritage prints like Paisley and checks with an earthy-toned slant.
Non-prints and familiar abstracts like camo, linear and animal are particularly important but are updated in pop colourways and textural jacquards that come all way from the Victorian era but have a contemporary resonance.
For garment inspiration, hand-crafted detailing that can be replicated in modern manufacture adds value to collections. Looking to add delicate contrasts of lace, trim, and added texture evolves the occasion and daywear selections for Fall and more statement beading comes into play for Winter going out ranges as customers really look to dress up again.
