V, as in five expressed in Roman numerals. Swank "Vi" collection has taken its inspiration from a raven, a mythical creature, a mediator, a messenger between life and death. Its feathers turned black from sorrow, a heaviness in its heart to witness a once loved living creature passed its way to the valley of death. Yet, a raven remains still, still like a lover who love with all its might, whilst its love were told to be unworthy and bound to be neglected. Welcoming Fall Winter 2014,

 

Swank "Vi" collection display an array of warmer looks yet still comfortable to wear on daily basis, due to our special cotton fabrics that we used widely throughout our entire collection. Black and white are still our main color chart, while blue and grey were added to symbolize the transition from life to death. Silhouette of a raven, as our main inspiration for "Vi", were carefully hand- embroidered onto our jumpers and custom made blazer. We also play along with fabric such as faux fox fur, to create a different feel and engage a new exciting experience with our collection.

 

“When those you love deeply reject you, leave you, or die, your heart will be broken. But that should not hold you back from loving deeply. The pain that comes from deep love makes your love ever more fruitful” - Henri Nouwen
