Touching on experimental textiles and drawing ire and inspiration from athletic cuts, designer Joseph Turvey continues his foray into the burgeoning world of Luxury Streetwear. Drawing inspiration from cult horror films The Craft, Wicker Man, and Clive Barker’s Nightbreed brings a more ominous tone to his collection.
To develop his design methodology further Joseph extracted imagery from old wives tales and folk laws such as ‘the boy who cried wolf‘ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood‘.
Joseph states “On the surface these tales are very innocent but have a much darker hidden message which was something I wanted to explore within the collection”.
Joseph Turvey, achieved this effect by manipulating fabrics, silk twills that were fused to enhance the structural properties of the fabric while maintaining its glossy and soft texture.
