Frequent collaborators with Australian artists, Verner collections are highly conceptual, often poking and prodding at perceived notions of Australianness via a nuanced interplay between surface appearance and structural design. Like flocks of Melburnians fleeing their homes after isolation for to amass on nature strips across the city, entitled "Exterior Motives" this new Verner collection (Holiday 20/21) is replete with vivid patterns, high-contrast photographic prints, and hand-drawn imagery alluding to a yearning for spiritual truths.
The "Stripe Lining" print—Verner's primary pattern for the "Exterior Motives" collection—evinces the label's affection for enhancing simple patterns with bold colour contrast and panelling. The Verner Socks employs the pattern to striking effect, with an all-over "Stripe Lining" pattern in all its multicolour glory. Constructed from soft cotton, these socks also feature contract heel and toe cap, ribbing at the leg opening, and Verner branding at the top of the leg.
Made from 100% cotton.
