Tome Fall/Winter 2017 is described as "feminist, political fun" with inspiration taken from the Guerilla Girls, celebrating thirty years of feminist art practice and agitation. The collection has many messages - ethical, sustainable, playful, intellectual, sensual and above all: 'Free The Nipple, because: My Body My Choice!'
The collection features 'Gorilla Fur' knitwear with Peruvian Alpaca, hand-knitted by women's collective in the Andes,jackets and dresses spliced with trompe l'oeil detailing of the female physique, punk tartans, banana embellishments, velvet and recycled pieces from previous seasons, from gloves, plastic coats and corsetry to bras and cotton shirts. The palette includes black, white, yellow, liquid gold, and pops of pink.
Backstage beauty includes skincare by skyn ICELAND, makeup by Diane Kendal and the MAC Pro Team, and hair by Antoinette Beenders for Aveda.
