Dear Shaded Viewers and Diane,

An aura of refined dawning ease, a casual, instinctive discipline tempered by the possibilities offered by lines of buttons and light loose ends: palmer//harding welcomes the winter to come with a collection whispering of clever elegance and layered mysteries, its cuts so precise and pondered, so impeccable and yet deeply heartfelt, to remind of the remote and emotive shapes of Greek marbles. And sculpture was indeed in their minds, in the form of Bruno Walpoth's poignant figures of powder and wood, whose suggestive surfaces inspired subtle texture contrasts in their distinctive Swiss and Egyptian cottons. Mastered and discreet, Levi Palmer and Matthew Harding's patterns and cuts efficiently conceal couture details within relaxed, superfine structures, in candid white, camel or dusty hues.
