Orley’s Offbeat Retro Collection is in a League of its Own

No contributor

Orley‘s fall/winter 2013–14 presentation takes a quirky, ultra-hip approach to the subject that is knitwear. The heavily retro-influenced collection was inspired by both the artwork of Frank Stella and the famously elaborate insect paintings of EA Seguy

Intricate geometric prints are a staple of the collection and seem to purposefully parallel the abstract minimalism found in Frank Stella’s work. Fitted retro cuts also ramp up the deep sense of nostalgia the brand aimed to create around this season’s offering. Designers also used sepia tone as a point of reference; a fact clearly reflected in the ruddy, slightly worn color palette of the collection.

Orley even translates the season’s inspirations into their look book. The first-time model (who is also the uncle of one of the co-founders of the company) is photographed as if he is the subject of an old-school, family-style portrait. The result is a playful exploration of the past in a charming contemporary collection with an endearingly retro edge.
