The team from Orley pushed the brand’s trademark aesthetic this season, twisting its signature knitwear into a variety of on-trend offerings.
With the Seventies singer-songwriter Nick Drake as inspiration, Alex, Matthew and Samantha Orley brought back classics from the era such as oversized slouchy pants in chocolate brown corduroy and chunky retro cable knits.
“It feels very nostalgic, which is what we do, but more textural and collegiate,” Alex Orley said. “The look is more tailored but still knit focused.”
Their collaboration with Swarovski continued as the team uncovered some deadstock colorful crystals they used as embellishments on some sweaters and as buttons in others.
A quilted nylon jacket in a muted maroon paisley print hinted at an extension into categories such as outerwear.
Slowly but surely, Orley continues to delve into new classifications.
