Exclusive: Emily Jean for Carly Hunter SS12/13

Oceans of minimalism and soft asymmetricality.

Emily Jean, who featured in April's Oyster Daily shot by Yimmy Yayo, stars in Carly Hunter's SS12/13 lookbook. The latest collection, 'Ocean Noir', is richly dark — almost monochromatic, if not for injections of burnt orange, sapphire and shimmering metallics — suggesting an exploration into nature.

Soft fabrics are slung, gathered and tucked over the body creating silhouettes that are both fluid and controlled. The graphic prints suggest an organic surface, but can also be interpreted as widely as the Rorschach tests they also resemble. Are they depictions of the jewel-encrusted barnacles on the skin of a particularly elegant whale? There's no wrong answer.

This collection (like her previous ones) is made for those who cherish lush fabrications and revel in the small details of craftsmanship.
