Charlotte Linton A/W 2012

Charlotte Linton hits it straight out of the park again with her A/W 2012 collection

The travel diaries of early 20th century artist Rockwell Kent provide a starting point for designer Charlotte Linton’s Greenland Collection. Taking inspiration from the paintings and drawings Kent created whilst living amongst Inuit communities, Charlotte blends her usual mix of landscape, wildlife and culture with Kent’s exuberant colour palette in her eclectic printed scarf collection.

This season, Charlotte’s fictional muse Ermantrude follows in Kent’s footsteps arriving in Nuuk Greenland to undertake a cross-country expedition. Under the glow of the Northern lights, Ermantrude learns of Greenlandic mythology, the traditional crafts of the Inuit and their ingenuity with fur, and listens to the song of the Bowhead Whale.

at the moment my thoughts are often consumed with a single line… WINTER IS COMING. and not just because Game of Thrones starts on 1 april. oh no. it’s still pretty hot here in south africa, but soon the weather is going to turn and i’ll be planning fantasy weekend getaways in log cabins with cosy fireplaces. the winter 2012 collection from Argentinian designer Leandro Dominguez makes me even more excited for my favourite season.
