Falling into Place: Huntington’s Jigsaw Collection
For her Autumn/Winter 2016 collection, Angela Huntington, the creative force behind the Huntington brand, found inspiration in her own artwork. This collection once again brings the lines of art and fashion closer together, this time by having Huntington occupy both the role of artist inspiration and that of fashion designer drawing from the artist source. The careful arrangement of jigsaw puzzle pieces acted as Huntington’s inspiration for large abstract paintings, which later became the basis of her most recent collection. While some pieces in the Fall collection echo the shapes and curves of a puzzle piece, others use local Canadian printing methods to copy Huntington’s exact artwork. The result is a collection of 60s mod style dresses, elegant jackets, and matching skirts that fit together beautifully, piece by piece.
