The AW16 Collection ‘Leave the Dark & Holy Mountain' introduces themes of cult religion, separation, and contrast. JPALM explores a clean modern signature with interest and intent. Bold PVC, flowing hair, boxy silhouettes and raw hems cooperate in a sombre junction. ‘Leave the Dark & Holy Mountain’ engages the wearer with a dusty colour palette of minty hues grounded by school yard greys & contrast with deep shiny black.
‘Leave the Dark & Holy Mountain’ seduces the wearer with a story of religious escape, dark obedience and fetish references. Using unconventional materials, JPALM manages to add a fresh approach to contemporary fashion in New Zealand by offering a clean and sensory collection that is not to be missed.
‘Leave the Dark & Holy Mountain’ showcases a collaboration with jeweller Kelly O’shea. Bound, whispy or flowing, the hair is encased in oxidized silver to compliment the collection.
All items are handmade in New Zealand to the highest standard. Carefully selected fabrics and an eye for detail sets ‘Leave the Dark & Holy Mountain’ in a league of its own. JPALM favours natural fibres, and has a bespoke eye for detail. This is evident in the utilitarian forms, tailored wool melton & PVC hardware in ‘Leave the Dark & Holy Mountain’ for AW16.
