The MJÖLK Spring/Summer 2012 collection is effervescent – an exercise in contemporizing the classic, and mixing playfulness with stoicism. Subtle detailing and classic cuts are emboldened throughout the range by an exuberant mix of
colours, patterns, and tailoring techniques: navy, deep olive, and grey mélange juxtaposed against bright yellow vinyl, red and white striped jersey, and fluorescent orange.
These dichotomies extend to the cut and proportion of each garment. Painstakingly tailored in the New York studio, Designer Lars Stoten applies his unique and studied garment construction techniques to every pattern, muslin, and final piece. The result this season is clear focus on functionality, with vinyl rainsuits, French Terry sweats, and canvas workwear. Understated merino openstitch knits make their mark with unusual and ultramodern stitch patterns.
Loosefitting cigar leg trousers owe their perfected fit to slouching front pockets and boxpleats at the side seam. Classic suit shapes – blazers, tapered trousers – sit beautifully with the more modern pieces in the range, creating dynamism within the collection as a whole. New approaches to our signature accessories – colourful new loafers and sandals, a four-handle day bag – pull together and complement the utility and eclecticism of the collection. Both groundbreaking and subtle in its design sensibility, the new MJÖLK range is at once an extension of what came before it, and something entirely new.
