Sahara - Autumn Winter 201907 Feb 2019 Sahara
A/W 19 sees Sahara returning to the essential elements of the brand’s roots: colour, pattern and texture that have taken inspiration from well-loved artists; Sonia Delauney, Claude monet, Mark Rothko and Paul Klee.
The Sahara Multi-colour Circle Print design echoes the concentric circular patterning in Delauney’s iconic painting Prismes électriques (Electric Prisms), 1914. Delauney’s inventive spirit underpins the whole collection this season, whilst Monet’s impressionistic brush strokes inspires our Anemone Blossom Print. The light and shade of this print suggests the changing of the seasons; the importance of coming back to nature, as evident in Monet’s work.
Abstract Impressionist Rothko’s influence is apparent in the Winter collection through the Painterly Brushstroke Print. Intense colours and dramatic shapes overlap to create a unique effect. Playfully naïve, the Paintbox Jersey Print is reminiscent of Klee’s experimental style - Colourful primary brights against a black background.
Colours increase in intensity as the season moves on. The autumn palette consists of two colour groups with a richer winter palette designed to layer on top.
As true to Sahara style, silhouettes are easy, sometimes oversized to showcase the fabrics: swinging A-line dresses, bubble shapes, boxy, relaxed tops and cosy knits. At Sahara, we are proud to support British manufacturing with ‘Made in England’ pieces throughout the collection.
