Taking its name from a term coined by the French philosopher Henri Bergson, the Élan Vital collection was inspired by the compelling force to remember, reignite and empower our now dwindling connection with planet Earth. Every print, fabric and texture was pieced together using organic processes and experimental techniques, allowing the materials to interact independently and set their own creative blueprint for the design. The resulting prints and textures reflect nature’s many masterpieces, from cracks on thirsty lands to the wet imprints of muddy waters. Ultimately, the designer is rendered passive; a vessel through which nature plays out its creations.
