Vanishing Elephant


Just got this wonderful update of Vanishing Elephant. A fine mix of great ingredients: merino wool, linen woven and waxed cottons and Italian lambs leather in natural earth tones all comes back in the classic and stylefull spring ’10 collection.

“The woods are never solitary – they are full of whispering, beckoning, friendly life. But the sea is a mighty soul, forever moaning of some great, unshareable sorrow, which shuts it up into itself for all eternity.”

Vanishing Elephant’s spring ’10 collection is an ode to the old man of the sea and the earth and her ever-changing seasons. These elements provide the inspiration for the colour palette of the collection – the deep blue of the ocean and the light green of the shallows can be seen in fine jersey tees, light blackwatch wool outerwear, linen wovens and wax cotton shorts. Earth tones of rust brown, burnt red and olive are used for over-dyed denim, cotton modal shirts and merino wool knits.
