Design based around the garment’s functional element and structure is the core principal of Chapter’s Autumn/Winter collection, Moral Form. This collection is derived by the characteristic principles of Soviet Modernism through the simplification of form, repetitive angular geometries, and the aesthetic sensation and interpretation of contemporary materials.
Emphatic in expressive simplicity, large in scale and imperial in its abstraction, Moral Form proposes bold interpretations of Brutalist Architecture such as cold appearance, harsh lines, linear elements and the consistent porous texture of concrete. The idea behind the functionality of structure as a design feature and the sense of vastness accustomed by repetitive structural elements embody this creative transformation of Chapter’s progressive design for Autumn/Winter 2014.
