Ovate by Stephanie Lou

Ovate clothing conveys an ideal of mysterious beauty.

Inspired by the simple yet intriguing designs, photographer Stephanie Lou develops a story of metamorphosis where model Thyra Van Daalen slowly turns into a mythical creature, whose tender youth will never fade. Seasonless and pure in their essential shapes, Ovate clothes are made to trascend time. The minimalistic cuts highlight the long-lasting elegance of natural fibers and the exquisite texture of primal materials. Designer behind the brand Audrey Cantwell uses raw textiles and hand-crafted techniques such as special washing and hand-dyeing to express an ideal of subtle beauty caught in understated elements. Like a modern Daphne, Thyra is a nymph fell under a magic spell that transforms her into a white sculpture. She embraces her new nature with grace and plays with the Time and Infinite, forever trapped into a black glasshour.
