Cimone -Carli Pearson’s New Vision

Carli Pearson may not be a name you know, but you will have seen her work from previous high profile roles at McQ, Wang, Stella McCartney and many other iconic labels, and now she has branched out with her own label Cimone. She’s taken all that experience along with her training at Central St Martins and is building a new fashion house in her own image.

Moving on from such historic names can be difficult, it’s like leaving a global band to have that solo career. However the first collection already has plenty for a future greatest hits album. This is a collection in her own image. I’d seen the lookbooks before she appeared Fashcast with my super lovely friend Steff Jones so I was very pleased to see the passion and attention to detail was there every time she spoke about what her collection was about and her ethos. She has her own identity as a designer and this collection shows that.

We can all see, admire and love the individuality of each look and garment, there are nods to current trends, a touch of the 80’s here and there, layering and the hints of copper that may be one of my all time fave themes I’ve seen, but along side that there is a uniqueness in the way the garments are cut and shaped, in the mix of fabrics and textiles and in the ideas explored.

It takes a brave voice to decide to go it alone from such amazing labels but I’m glad Carli has, I love the fact that it’s all created by specialist professionals, adding their skills to her voice. That voice is loud, bold and ready to keep telling us much more, I look forward to telling that story as it progresses.
