The dramatic collapse of a glacier is the protagonist in Australian-Chinese designer DORIS Q‘s Spring Summer 2014 collection.

‘Chasing Ice’, the devastatingly beautiful documentary by acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog about the effect of global warming, along with DORIS Q’s vivid imagination evolved into a wearable yet dramatic story comprising of foamy neoprene, sporty mesh, water proof fabrics ย and wispy silks reminiscent of sea spray. ‘The way the glaciers moved and icebergs collapsed in to the sea reminded me of a sleeping Tyrannosaurus waking up.’ Explained Doris, ‘it was haunting and spectacular at the same time, which I wanted to reflect in this collection.’

Shades of cool whites, blues, grays and blacks reflect the icy landscape and arctic seas, while white digitally printed glaciers and sculpted shapes completed the glacial outlook for the collection.
