The Debut Collection is made of three subthemes: Seven Seas, Air Provençal, and Designed by Nature symbolic of all the things that we were deprived of at the beginning of the pandemic as the first collection was being designed.
Welcome to Dodo's Debut Collection
The fabrics became our way of travelling and appreciating the simpler things in life – the slowing down of our hectic lives and the outcome of what we can create as a result.
‘If the wind blows, ride it’ | Arabic Proverb
Fabrics used for the Seven Seas theme include Ralph Lauren’s Down Easter Boats, Monticello and Ottelia from Designers Guild, William Yeoward’s Astasia and Scion’s Mr. Fox.
‘Earth laughs in flowers’ | Ralph Waldo Emerson
Air Provençal theme is brought to life using, amongst others the Jindai and Santuzza fabrics from Designers Guild and Pillar Point Floral, Yarmouth Floral and Beach Batik from Ralph Lauren.
Designed by Nature
‘There is no better designer than nature’ | Alexander McQueen
The last in the sub themes that make up the debut collection is called Designed by Nature.
Designers Guild fabrics feature heavily including Japonaiserie Azure, Quill, Varese Lambusa Celadon, and Melville. Also featuring here is John Derian’s intricate kaleidoscope of Mirrored Butterflies.
