The NYC-based brand references the work of artist Patricia Cronin.
Our favorite resort collection this year is from Tome. For 2017, the NYC-based brand was referencing the work of artist Patricia Cronin and her most recent installation “Shrine for Girls” which celebrates the victims of three unconnected tragedies with explicitly female victims – the 276 Nigerian schoolgirls who were kidnapped in 2014; the two teenage Indian girls who were gang-raped and lynched in the same year; and the women who worked in forced labour during Ireland’s Magdalene asylums. Tome’s collection reflects Cronin’s use of clothes as a powerful medium to highlight the dead – or absent – bodies by drawing subtle parallels to traditional dress from the victims’ countries of origins in the designs. Designer Lobo means that they invested in more reused and responsibly sourced materials than ever for this collection, including denim, leather and cashmere, and that the overall goal was to create pieces that women will want to wear again and again.
