Exclusive: Antipodium 'Emoji' Resort 2013 Lookbook

Inspired by texting and technology.

Antipodium's new Resort collection is so 2013. It was partly inspired by a late-night text sesh in which the label's Creative Director, Geoffrey J. Finch, and Jamie Perlman, Creative Director at British Vogue, got a little finger-happy and went wild with the use of emojis (we've all been there).

Continuing Antipodium's seasonal collaborations, Jamie created some exclusive emoji textiles for Resort — bows, roses, pistols and eyes are delicately embroidered onto peach organza for the 'Mixed Messages' textile, while the 'Double Digits' thumbs up/thumbs down print appears on a Tumblr-blue silk crepe de chine dress.

There's a futuristic-sporty feel to the rest of the 'Emoji' collection, with pieces like a nu-wave elongated baseball-jacket-come-coat (really, the piece is called 'NuWave'). The shirting is beautiful IRL, and this season also sees Antipodium's first foray into jewellery. Working with NY-based designer Ebony Fluer, there's a small range of rave-a-rific earrings, necklaces and bracelets with in-built flashing LED lights.
