Narelle Dore / Ra shop

Australian designer Narelle Dore hosted an intimate presentation of her autumn winter 2010-11 collection as an afternoon tea in the back garden and atrium of ra. her capsule of twenty handmade pieces was based on a series of pinhole camera photos narelle made at the salt lakes near her hometown of Perth in Australia.

“the way the film captured the sunlight and harsh environment with an unfocused softness inspired the use of linens, suede, sanded silks and lasercut/burnt leather. i wanted to translate sun rays like amulets, to be incorporated into the cuts and textile effects.”
