MITHRIDATE debuts a visionary collection for AW19
Fashion House MITHRIDATE announced its debut collection for AW19, entitled “WAR”.
Pulling heavily from English romanticism, the collection is inspired by the historical “War of the Roses”; as well as the 1908 painting “Plucking the Red and White Roses in the Old Temple Garden” by Henry Payne where supporter of the rival factions pick either red or white roses.
Each piece in the collection was designed to bring together an intricate knowledge of couture detailing into a ready to wear collection: a staple of the brands DNA.
The word MITHRIDATE is, like the collection designs; full of mystery and magic. Named after the King who discovered a cure to fight all poisons, MITHRIDATE wants to provide a cure for women who are continually exploring their identity through their clothing.
Founder Demon Zhang’s design language, spoken through MITHRIDATE is a balance between romance, self-awareness and the outside world. The relationship between all three fascinates her as a designer and continues to inspire her. The collection is designed to show that beauty isn’t one factor; but short moments that exist in a constant state of change.
