Antipodium Resort 2012: Uniform With A Hint Of Kink
With an armful of organza and shrimp-printed dresses, Geoffrey Finch of Antipodium London headed stateside last month to show off his uniquely wearable brand. With “the shirtdress always at the core of the collection," Finch has moved from fall's gaucho influence to polished Sydney hipster for resort, offering extremely layer-able pieces in a full range of neutrals and a pièce de résistance green that he considers “a bit clinical.” Each season, the designer enlists the help of an illustrator friend to create his prints, which “have sort of a cult following.” For resort, Finch consulted fellow Aussie Karl Maier, who created textiles featuring an awkwardly endearing shrimp. Finch is well acquainted with multitasking, a trait that’s evident in the versatile pieces he designs for Antipodium. “There’s always a hint of kink with a uniform element,” Finch said of his signature aesthetic. For resort, he’s created oversize boxy blazers, fluid silk button downs and linear organza skirts, all of which can be effortlessly mixed and matched to your chic heart’s desire.
