Sunday Morning – David Black’s new collection

Scottish Fashion Awards nominee David Black first came to the scene with his taste for the macabre and love for tailoring. His  first collection “A House if Not a Home” was completely black paying homage to vintage silhouettes, so seeing him take a sidestep in to colour is completely refreshing. His new collection (graduate collection if you can believe it!) “Sunday Morning” is absolutely beautiful. Bright prints and graphic shapes make up this collection inspired by religious architecture. The new collection is so beautiful,m very baroque and romantic – reminiscent of church art and stained glass windows. I love the floral millinery reminiscing the saints in the windows and the choice of colours is beautiful. Purple and orange ALWAYS. The prints are reminiscent of Givenchy or Katrantzou, and the entire collection is very wearable. I mean I love seeing graduate collections as you can see some crazy couture collections that are splendid but ny impossible to wear, but Sunday Morning manages to be absolutely captivating while looking like something I could legit have my wardrobe. I have to say I’m not cray cray for peter pan collars – but that’s a personal niggle more than anything else. The collection is all very hard and soft (brights and pastels) and I’m pretty much in love.
A short fashion film was released along with the look book – which in all honesty I am not crazy for. I feel that Black is an incredibly talented young man, and for me film should be about immersing yourself in someone elses world and I would have very much have liked to see how the garments move. I love Black for his experimentation (the exhibition he did with G2E events was wonderful!) and I would love to have seen something a bit more dramatic. That said – time and money can be bitches so can someone sort this boy with some dollah and a camera?
