Following on from the success of our first collaboration with Katharine Hamnett, YMC have once again joined forces to create a tightly edited collection of archive pieces for AW16. Hamnett’s influence on fashion is reflected in the timeless nature of her designs, pieces that look as fresh now as they did in the 80’s. As one of Britain’s leading environmental spokespersons, Hamnett has tirelessly campaigned for political and social issues and has a unique ability to make people sit up and listen. Embracing a workwear and military spirit, the AW16 collection sees classic utility shapes and modern wardrobe staples constructed from organic biodynamic silk and certified
organic cotton. Manufactured in Italy and Portugal, the garments are finished with recycled and sustainable sourced trimmings and use environmentally friendly dyes and inks.
