Titled ‘Silhouettes’, the capsule collection is intended to showcase the beauty in simplicity, from a close study of light and its effect on silhouettes. Whilst a departure from their previous collections, it is an ode to careful refinement, born from four creative personalities: the photographer, the stylist, the painter and the potter. With firm references to workwear, the collection creates a specific look for each individual, which responds to their day-to-day activities. As designer Sean Tran puts it, “each piece was required to speak of the characters’ unique traits, as well as be utilitarian and sturdy for the nature of their occupations.”

Transeasonal and made to last, the collection has been crafted in a restrained palette of black and white to accentuate the character the silhouettes of the collection takes on. With respect for natural, hard wearing and durable fabrications, sourced from specialty Japanese fabric mills, the collection forefronts Japanese denim to create careful selection of beautifully draped outerwear and trousers for the everyday - these are complemented by subtle alternatives to basics in soft, flowy natural fabrics.
Available from mid-December, ‘Silhouettes’ can be found on SHHORN’s webstore and in select retailers. Appointments for showings in their Surry Hills atelier can be made here.
