The Order Serves Up The Antidote
TAKE THE ANTIDOTE
THE ORDER / 2018
I don’t know how many of you have followed this blog as far back as 2009, but if you have you may recall my obsession with all things sheer. I would pile on layers of sheer black fabric. Countless posts featured layers of diaphanous black.
So when I saw the latest collection from The Order, entitled Antidote, I was instantly smitten as it took me rightback to 2009 and my own experiments with layered up sheer, bralettes and vinyl. What makes this collection even more serendipitous is that designer Nicole Maret explains that the latest collection was “driven by the truth that reached critical mass through personal introspection”.
Antidote is a conceptual nod to the ever-present tension between rebellion and conformity
The vision Nicole clearly has for The Order perfectly straddles these two opposing ideals.
Whilst it’s minimalist aesthetic lends the label an inherent wearability that would allow the individual pieces to easily slot inside most people’s wardrobe, there is also room there to create that more rebellious narrative. In other words, The Order is, for me at least, a perfectly formed brand as it allows each wearer to easily create their own look using these glorious pieces as the foundation.
