Let's talk about jacquards

Social jacket from our Fancy Jacquard collection

Philosophy Australia designs are all about the easy wear, easy care philosophy. Most of our fabrics don't require ironing, are wash and wear and wrinkle resistant; so are just perfect for travel too.

Part of the easy wear, easy care philosophy is that our pieces are designed to coordinate with other current season pieces, as well as the collections either side. You will see this when it comes to the colour and print trends throughout.

Let's talk about jacquards. Jacquard fabric features a raised pattern that is woven (instead of printed) onto the fabric. We have chosen a stretch woven jacquard in four different designs for AW19.

Zanzibar; Sparkle; Cube; Contempo
  • Zanzibar - a grey + white animal print

  • Sparkle - a repeating pattern with a shimmery sheen in a dark metallic shade

  • Contempo - reminiscent of fishnet stockings in grey and white

  • Cube - a black based mini cubed design

Featuring Elna, a pencil skirt; Clandine, a stretch slim pant; and Social, a biker-styled cropped jacket.

All of these pieces will team beautifully with our anything-but-basic plain ranges:

  • Shirting - Dobby textured chiffon and Poplin cotton

  • Vintage - flowing chiffon

  • Traveller - slinky jersey

  • Jersey - Bamboo jersey and Veil wool jersey

  • Dream Denim - our Dream Jeans and collarless jacket in this season's colourway of black, grey and blue

Our Capullo knitwear, Heritage coat and knit range will be a match made in warm and stylish heaven!

The subtle pattern of our Fancy woven jacquard pieces means they work back with lots of this season's prints too.

Midas jacket; Sparkle Elna skirt; Rosalie top, Contempo Elna skirt

As shown here, our Elna skirt in Sparkle jacquard and Contempo Elna works back beautifully with our chic Midas jacket, and our romantic Rosalie shirt.

Our Social jacket, shown here in our Zanzibar jacket, can be teamed with colours, prints, pleather and denim. Just to name a few of the mix and match styles that can be created with this fab biker-styled jacket.
