Critically acclaimed designer duo Wolk Morais unveilled their new Cashmere Collection. Inspired by the silver screen, the cornerstone of the collection is a unisex double-faced cashmere, hand-stitched “On Set Coat,” the designer’s homage to the glamour of Hollywood.
The collection marks the photographic debut of designer Brian Wolk and was shot at a historically preserved modernist home in Los Angeles.”Los Angeles has been the lead character for our creative journey thus far,” Brian Wolk and Claude Morais said. The Cashmere collection has given us an opportunity to reach a large group of our clients, both men and women who are excited about everyday luxury that is multi-season, non-gender specific, and inspired by the relaxed attitude of California Living.
Mr. Wolk and M. Morais, with longtime collaborating stylist Elizabeth Stewart, were inspired by Hollywood’s tradition of relaxed on-set tailoring. The designers will present their signature tailoring through the lens of cinematically infused “his and hers” Robe Coats and Spencer Jackets. The palette pays homage to their filmic inspiration. The collection is composed completely of hand-stitched double-faced cashmere.
It will debut on the CFDA’s RUNWAY360 platform and will be on the market from Feb 14th to February 28th at VESPR-CoOp in Manhattan.
