The new summer 2015 ladies collection is here! The Denham team looked to the ancient world of Byzantium to inspire this natural, casual and free-flowing collection.
Byzantium and Constantinople epitomised a powerful cultural and exploratory force in our world for over a millennium. As the borders of the Byzantine Empire continuously evolved over its lifetime, so its courageous explorers continuously set forth to discover what magic and mystery far flung places had to offer, and of course continuously returned with their incredible tales of discovery.
Byzantium and Constantinople conjure up a palpable sense of romance – romance in the true meaning of the word – adventure, enchantment, intrigue and passion. Imagine a Byzantine explorer and what characteristics their clothes would have? Lots of exciting words spring to mind – weather worn, hard wearing, comfortable, practical, faded, aged, body-moulded, softened, tough, weather resistant – you get the picture?
This Byzantine look in essence embraces these characteristics – the collection is casual, neutral in tone, adventurous and definitely enchanting. But it is also quietly faded and soft, it’s good looking, intriguing, tough, comfortable, weather resistant….
