A REPUTATION FOR RE-ENCHANTMENT
British fashion designer Richard Quinn founded his eponymous label in 2016 and has already established a reputation for using both innovative and artisanal techniques to create elaborate womenswear. His singular approach to design has earned him the attention of the international fashion world and accolades including the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design. Instantly identifiable for their bright, retro-inspired prints and motifs of re-enchanted nature, Quinn’s designs exude all the exuberance of Art of the Wild.
AN AFFINITY FOR THE WILD
Richard Quinn’s dedication to applying hand-crafting techniques encapsulates the tradition and savoir-faire at the heart of the House’s heritage. The designer and Maison Perrier-Jouët also share an affinity with vivid, unbridled nature. These values are reflected in Richard Quinn’s designs: their extravagance emanates from not only their sensational style, but the meticulous attention-to-detail in their creation.
A DARING DESIGN DUO
The House united Richard Quinn with fellow Artisan of the Wild Winnie Harlow to form a dialogue between their respective creative worlds. Together, they interpreted Art of the Wild in the form of a couture gown with an exaggerated bow detail and voluminous train comprising 200 metres of tulle, creating a spectacular silhouette. The body was infused with nature as a direct reference to the House’s Art Nouveau heritage, reinvented in vibrant a palette. It was originally revealed on the red carpet of amfAR Gala Cannes 2019.
