Volume and minimalism
Eva Emanuelsen recently held a private viewing of the latest Epilogue by Eva Emanuelsen collection. When we asked the creative director to elaborate on the collection, she told us this was her most personal collection so far.
The collection showed clear signs of courage and strength and strong fabrics were the highlights of the collection. Eva Emanuelsen has created a collection for the international market based on the Scandinavian woman. Epilogue has always delivered strong grey, charcoal and black hues, which was no exception for the A/W 14 collection. The palette also included houndstooth print, olive, bold reds and rich blues. Thick double woven wools paired with heavy knits defined the silhouette giving it volume and texture.
The Epilogue-woman is modern and international, yet classic and minimalistic at the same time. With minimal layering and delicate lengths, Epilogue breaking in as a new household name for Scandinavian women.
SVA: In which way is this your most personal collection?
EE: I was solely alone in creating this collection. I let go of all the pressure around creating something that was going to sell and bring commercial success, so I focused on designing what I originally wanted to wear. The Epilogue woman has become somewhat of an imaginary version of my vision.
SVA: 2014 marks ten years of Epilogue. How has it been working with your own namesake brand over time?
