In the initial stages of creating a collection, designers often turn to the world around them for inspiration. They open their minds to the abundance of unique environments, historical artifacts and works of art that live just outside their doorstep, allowing their creative desires to run free. Whether it’s music, sculpture, paintings or fashion, there is truth to the notion that the best type of art imitates life. This season, the AJE ATHLETICA designers found themselves deeply connected to Mother Earth, gravitating towards earthy tones and plant-based fabrications. Through recognition of this symbiotic relationship, the ‘Destination’ collection was born.
