“Dresses with snaps on the sides that can become tunics, a recycled nylon trenchcoat has removable sleeves…we definitely put an emphasis on functionality to let our costumers go with their own flow,” Morgan said.
What is new is an effort to work in more softness, fluidity and movement, as on a hand-painted check-patterned pleated skirt, a fun mohair sweater surrounded in a cloud of tulle, and a laser-punched and “intensely washed” black denim top that has the texture of a shaggy knit. “It’s the same fabric we use for our layered denim pant,” Morgan said.
Sustainability is a growing focus for the brand, which produces locally. “We have a biodegradable nylon bomber…when I saw the fabric at PV [Première Vision], I had never seen anything like it before. It’s a technical fabric and sporty, but doesn’t look crunchy sustainable. And the lining is post consumer wool,” the designer said.
When her next Perfect Number collection launch? We’ll see. She’s in no rush: “The pandemic pushed us to think more about the pace and seasonality. We are committed to considered design.”
