Song For The Mute‘s international inspiration again shapes the Australian label’s seasonal designs, with “21.1 NAÏVE,” its Spring/Summer 2021 collection, drawing from artists like Jean Dubuffet and Alfred Wallis who shaped the naïve art movement. Creative director Lyna Ty’s partner, Karim Gaaloul, also contributed to Song For The Mute’s latest by way of a series of raw, spontaneous works realized by way of brooches, badges, patches and hands-on accents.

Gaaloul’s intentionally unsophisticated drawings — simply dubbed Dinosaur, Fish, Room and so on — are embroidered atop patches that are then hand-stitched to Song For The Mute’s cotton and cupro work jackets, shirting and slacks. All-over patterns drawn from Ty’s photography accompany whimsical paint splatters, doodles and tie-dye, yielding a visually stimulating array of breathable layering pieces. To further toy with the chaotic graphic play, SFTM serves up a bevy of complementary bags, caps, liner vests and a hand-dyed take on its signature chain accessory.

“We were all born creative minds, until societal judgement is placed upon us and our imagination is diluted,” Ty said in a statement. “This creativity is omnipresent, latent, waiting to be embraced again; if we free our minds it could take us to places unknown.”

Shop Song For The Mute’s latest on December 12 on its web store and global stockists.

A similar sense of child-like wonder inspires Namacheko’s own Spring/Summer 2021 range, taking cues from elements in each designers’ youth.
