Spring/Summer 2011 - The Big Comedown

Stolen Girlfriends Club lead us off the garden path this season with a signature print derived from the stunning work of New Zealand visual artist Karl Maughan.  Dealing with ideas stemming from the cultivation of the ideal, and an interruption or imposition on nature, the print presents a flawlessness that is both seductive and suspicious. Maughan's hyper-real paintings of surrealist fantasy landscapes in an explosion of colour are magnified and multiplied into an infinite maze of light and dark that dances on a slipstream of silk.

Refining their rock edge, Stolen Girlfriends Club applies their irreverent approach to sharp tailoring, loosened by panels of chiffon and georgette, dresses with articulated bodice details and a lick of leather, offering a collection with a slicker surface and a darker heart. The Big Comedown reflects a superficial beauty with an ominous undertone.
