shrimps spring/summer 18 is an essay in romanticism

Tish Weinstock, i-D, September 15, 2017

With all the charm of an English garden in summertime mixed with the dreamy romanticism of a place like Venice, this season Shrimps will have you falling in love.


Think of your traditional English rose garden, flowers in full bloom. Now imagine it on acid, and you might just come close to the bucolic dream world that was Shrimps' spring/summer18 presentation. Inspired by a recent romantic trip to Venice and the serene beauty of the natural world Hannah Weiland's latest collection was an essay in romanticism.


The classic Shrimps faux fur coat was given a summery makeover, coming in chlorophyll greens and brilliant whites – one with irreverent illustrations of black shells, leaves and other organic forms, and another with yellow, blue, and green swirls reminiscent of the Murano glass Hannah fell in love with in Venice. Elsewhere there were tiered trousers in monochrome and metallic silver, lime green pinafores, lavender coloured tea dresses, and full look in tulips pinks.
