Stills // puur en precies
The Dutch womenswear label, known for its modern interpretations of classics, opened its flagship store in 2011 at the Cornelis Schuytstraat in Amsterdam, followed by a shop-in-shop in Harvey Nichols, London by the end of last year. Stills is an accessible luxury brand that offers pure design and quality for a reasonable price.
The S/S 14 collection is a quiet celebration of the Dutch womenswear label’s success, pairing a sense of timeless elegance and luxury with a modern attitude. In their immediately covetable beauty, the fabrics of Stills’ preference tend to dictate the architecture of the designs. This intensive design process ultimately serves women, offering them a highly considered, contemporary and radically elegant wardrobe. Couture like feminine elegance and masculinity merge in a modern and highly accessible way in repeated silhouettes such as lady-suits and cigarette pants, fitted shift dresses and skirts with matching tops or jacket styles, large and luxurious coat vests, easy jerseys and delicate fully fashioned knits. The colours for Spring 2014 reflect the ‘new dawn’ theme with rudimentary neutral shades ranging from canvas and straw to cardboard, from chalk and haze-grey to black, with only a touch of feminine passion ranging from soft pinks and husk-yellow to a deep merlot red.
