A tomboy deception of femininity, this capsule accessories collection consists of florals, diaphanous fabrics and militaria. Reinvented holster pockets and nurses bags are crafted from unique couture leathers and lined with imagery of ethereal creatures and fantastical foliage. Delicately sinister silk jersey and leather is printed with a toile du jouy illustrated by designer Victoria McGrane of Neurotica finishing the collection in a most unlikely but fascinating collaboration.
Rachel Freire has been working in collaboration with ECCO Leather to create new and innovative materials at their unique R&D facility in the Netherlands. Two contrasting leathers make their debut within the collection as a beautiful representation of the evocation of antiquity and futurism. ECCO Leather makes leathers that are simple, pure and natural, crafted with love, expertise and care, perfectly complimenting the timeless craftsmanship of Rachel's work.
Rachel Freire collaboration pieces for Neurotica will also be showing at the Labb Emerge event on Monday 20th September, 4-9pm, Hoxton Factory Basement.
