FORCE OF NATURE
Saloon’s new collection lovingly celebrates the Force of Mother Nature.
Our Force of Nature Collection is trans-seasonal with new designs and re-workings of iconic Saloon styles. It continues our steadfast dedication to sustainability, quality and elegance.
And it is an extremely limited edition, with just 20 of each item.
Our Collection is inspired by the Force of Mother Nature: by her awe-inspiring beauty and her capacity for destruction, which always reminds us that we are completely at her mercy. She protests the environmental devastation we have brought upon her through drought, fire and flood. Yet she is also resilient. Regenerating herself and continuing to nurture us with her earthly body.
Mother nature demands respect and urges that we remember we are part of her, not separate from her.
Raw forces exist within us also. We have to grapple with big questions and with our inner nature; What do we want? What do we stand for? What will we choose?
We can change the way we live on this earth for the better: speaking truth to power, changing our habits, making, creating, caring, nurturing and inspiring - we are born with the capacity for good. We use our minds, hearts and hands to shape the future of our choosing. Another Force of Nature is born.
Saloon Design House, is committed to local production and community collaboration, designing for women of strength, substance and intelligence. Designers Dena Pharaoh Pezzano and Jane Magnus bring these sensibilities to every facet of their bespoke Australian label. Saloon is proud to be real slow fashion – made by local hands, in limited run collections, using natural fibres, ethical suppliers,
found and recycled materials.
Tucked away from the grind of the city, Saloon is situated in the Southern Tablelands of NSW, on Yuin County, surrounded by forests, rivers, and mountain ranges and the animals that call them home. The label has always found a muse in these elements of nature, but never more than now.
In our Force of Nature Collection Saloon’s signature Liberty prints collide with collected fabrics from around the world in a cocktail of optimism, chaos and beauty. Vintage aesthetics meet contemporary values in pieces to make your own celebration of Mother Nature. Florals and corduroy give a nod to the original, wise, fun-loving flower-child, while velvets and structured tailoring confidently meet the intent gaze of professionals. And a Saloon woman is not afraid to get her hands dirty: Force of Nature introduces serious work-wear with the sturdy Rainforest Crusader pant and vest twin set featuring the Saloon patch – an emblematic reminder of what’s most important.
Mother Earth still thrives. The collective human force of nature inspires awe. As both a celebration of strength and hope and a call to arms, we hand over our Collection to you. Nature shows the way with her ferocity, tenacity and beauty – let's join forces.
