The Autonomous Collections is a young London based brand taking an ethical approach to fabrication and design. The brand offers a bold aesthetic that is wearable and considered. Founded by Kim Stevenson, hailing from Geelong, Australia, her experiences of extreme weather and global warming led her to create her own brand, with a thoughtful ideal. After travelling the globe Stevenson settled in London to study fashion, admiring British fashion she began to consolidate and explore her brand. Taking inspirations from both rural and city life, her work constantly reflects the value of handcraft with her use of woven techniques and applique. Calling on different cultures in her work she is often inspired by tribes and street culture, combining new techniques with classic silhouettes, she has evolved a free and romantic brand aesthetic.
The Autonomous Collections AW15 capsule collection is inspired by American Indian tribes, calling on their techniques and material choices; she has re-imagined these ideas in a contemporary way. The collection has a strong theme of a dual city and rural life, brining recognisable silhouettes to life through her use of bold colours, appliques’ and mixed material combinations. Natural fibres are intertwined, frayed, tasselled and woven to produce a unique fabrication, colours are natural with highlights of neon that add a modern finish. Designs are elongated, oversized and exaggerated adding a dominant finish to each look.
