London-based Tourne de Transmission releases its Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Consisting of a leather biker jacket, sweater, jersey pant and T-shirt series, the collection is highlighted by its hand-printed designs realized by TDT creative director Graeme Gaughan.
Emphasizing the power of the printed message, the designs of the collection all center around the theme of industry and the social impact of progress. The orange square that pops out of the collection’s predominantly monochrome color scheme in ‘Smile’ is reflective of the blast furnaces used during the Industrial Revolution while the rocky pattern of the ‘Substance’ design is reminiscent of Gaughan’s childhood. In his words: “The rock formations in the image made me think of men picking away and digging for coal near to where I grew up in the west Midlands, a place called Coalbrookdale where the industrial iron smelting started in the 1700s.”
