Founded in 1989 in East London’s edgy fashion epicentre, ‘Religion’ rooted itself into early club culture, being prominent in some major club openings, including Space and Pacha. With an aesthetic inspired by international street culture and the grunge style of East London, Religion create collections full of rock-star attitude – distressed detailing, innovative silhouettes, washed out graphics and elegant drapery. The signature Religion ‘look’  has attracted a number of celebrity fans including Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn, Jordin Sparks and Kate Moss.

The edgy British brand, continues to impress with their Spring/Summer 2012 womenswear collection, which features clean tailoring, slouchy silhouettes and fringed detailing. Trousers come in a cigarette or a wide-legged cut; dresses are given form-enhancing drapery and mullet hems; and jackets are cropped and sharply tailored or casual with laid back fit. The collection also features super-short shorts, stylish shirting and the signature religion distressed basics. The colour palette is typically muted, consisting of primarily of blacks, greys and stone colours, with pops of crisp white and delicate, washed out blue.

Stand out pieces of the collection include a airy blue dress with sheer overlay, asymmetric hem and soft drapery; an over-sized t-shirt dress with large lion print and dropped back hem; and black leather jacked with long fringe detailing on the sleeves and back.

So without further ado we present the Spring/Summer 2012 womenswear collection from Religion…Enjoy!
