Ovate captures the synthesis between nature's elegant simplicity and the spare beauty of minimalism. Artistry and functionality coalesce in a liminal space. Each garment begins with noble materials - cotton, hemp, wool, silk, linen, silver, leather - in a gradation of blacks and muted, neutral shades. Natural fibres and textures are best complemented by a desaturated, monochromatic palate. Timeless, mysterious and graceful, black is simultaneously lack of colour, and the fusion of them all. Genuine beauty lies in imperfection; human creations, as much as those of the natural world, are given life by their asymmetries and flaws. Drawing from these essential elements as well as history and traditional costume, with a focus on deconstruction, distressing, garment-washing, and hand-dyeing, the end result is as unique as the raw materials of which it is wrought.
Ovate clothing is entirely handcrafted by the designer, Audrey, and her assistant Gabrielle in Montreal, Canada
