Bermudian designer Meagan Wellman launched the Spring/Summer 2017 collection for her line M_SEW yesterday. Consisting of around 12 pieces, the collection was inspired by 1970s Jamaican sound system culture and the waters that surround the island.  Entitled 'Sound Waves', it is Wellman's take on that era and builds upon her previous 'Cup Match Runnings' collection with more sportswear elements and references to vintage swimwear.

The pieces, with the exception of the jumpsuit, consist of separates which allows the wearer to put their own stamp on the clothes and create a unique look. The collection includes a bikini bra pleated top with peplum, high-waisted flared leggings, a halter-neck top and several cold shoulder pieces. Wellman uses spandex, a textile commonly found in swimwear, and incorporates features such as adjustable straps and tie fastenings to ensure optimal fit and comfort. Cotton French ticking, more often used for upholstery and white cotton open weave fabric used for cross-stitching have also been incorporated in new ways. The collection is unified by an original screen-printed marble pattern that ensures these classic fabrics are imbued with new life.
