Ganni’s pre-fall collection, aptly named Culture Clash, is arriving in Workshop Auckland stores and online today, and we are already swooning over the inspired pieces.
This season sees a thoughtful mix of florals and electric shades, alongside the classic Ganni silhouettes we know and love. Must-have wrap skirts make an appearance and are paired with ultra-feminine silk and cotton blend shirts and dresses, setting a new benchmark for stylish sophistication.
The collection is inspired by the creative director’s first trip to Liverpool in the ’90s. From a sleepy town in Denmark to the bright city of Liverpool, you can see the contrast in the two disparate worlds; through bright pops of colour and textures to contrasting poplin white shirts and super soft sweats.
“Growing up in the countryside, I wanted to be anywhere else, living in Copenhagen or a city someplace. We were so isolated. I had a strong sense of what I wanted to wear, but you wouldn’t call it fashion exactly. I bought all my clothes in thrift stores and I had no idea that there was this job of fashion designer. Then when I was 14 I went to Liverpool to stay with my sister at the university. Imagine it, I was this naïve country girl who’d never left Denmark stepping into Britpop mania. In Liverpool, I heard bands like Pulp and Elastica for the first time. I discovered punk and stayed out dancing... the whole world cracked open. With Pre-Fall I think there is that duality in the collection. You have the innocent country girl and something darker and messier. “ — Ditte Reffstrup, Creative Director, GANNI
