Jamie went tufting mad for his S/S 09 collection and by using black mohair on the garments, from a distance the tufted effect looks like marabou but I’m sure when touching it in person would feel entirely different. When combined with the patterns, the tufting is further elevated with a fantastic judgement of colour, clashing brights where possible and incorporating simple geometric motifs.
Though the shapes of the garments are fairly simple, with the addition of his tufted detailing add a very finite structure to the dresses, like outlining drawings with a chunky black marker (so satisfying, no?). He plans on making tufting a signature of his so expect more next season.
