Viola Menchini’s avant-garde feminine collection used the world of dating apps and the effect of working long hours to gain success as inspiration, portraying the feeling of loneliness and romance in her designs. She looked to photographer, Juno Calypso’s work, which expresses loneliness and self-obsession as well as the sculptural work of Karla Black, for the colour inspiration. Using red, pink, white and black – she designed a mixture of lace trimmings, floral prints, and an arrow-shaped patch linking to the tinder ‘swipe right’ movement.
