The Spring Summer 2019 "FAIL BETTER" collection, presented during Paris Fashion Week, takes its lead from the famous quote by Irish avant-gardist, Samuel Beckett "Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better."
The slippage of hope between mistake and brilliance. The moment endeavour becomes result. "I wanted to celebrate the notion of 'attempt', the striving for individuality." explains Jane Carr. Collage, montage and bricolage all play within the designs in this collection; combining pinstripe with polkadots, painted brush marks with collaged antique flowers.
