Reading a Lunar interview on Eco Fashion World recently I was captivated by the Lunar collection’s textiles from South Africa and the creative thinking from the label’s fashion designer Karen Ter Morshuizen.
The Lunar collection is “reviving old-fashioned techniques: hand knitting, smocking, felting, African beading and hand embroidery. These crafts are often interpreted into uncomplicated clothes in luxurious fabrics with understated detailing and intelligent cutting. The result is a couture approach to ready-to-wear fashion.”
Lunar is the ultimate eco lifestyle vision of fashion designer Karen Ter Morshuizen and her partnership with Paul Harris. Together the creative eco-design team brought to life the conception of nature inspired merchandise. Since it´s inception Lunar has been keenly sensitive to “environmental concerns, exclusively using natural fibres, and natural pigment dyes in each collection.“
Each collection reflects Karen’s essential design philosophy of preserving traditional crafts and nurturing the talents of skilled handicraft artisans worldwide.
The collection is as charming as the poem banner at the bottom of the Lunar page saying:
“SHEER , NIGHT, ETHEREAL, LIGHT, COTTON, NATURE, TOUCH, BONE, SHIMMER, SKIN, TEXTURE , LOVE, GHOST, EARTH, FROST, WHISPER”
