Shjark

 a Q&A with Amber Gardner founder and designer of Shjark.

What was your main inspiration behind this winter collection? Were there any specific themes or influences that guided your designs?

Our AW24 collection was influenced by the idea of a fusion of two distinct yet complementary worlds: the timeless charm of the English countryside and the opulence of the French court. I wanted to capture the essence and practicality of heritage-inspired style while infusing it with luxury, tailored for the cooler months.

Could you talk about the materials you've chosen for this range and why you selected them?

The overall aesthetic of this collection could be described as a blending of refined opulence and understated elegance. I’ve curated a mood that effortlessly balances the cozy comfort of premium materials like plush wools, tweed, and velvets with the sophistication of silk satins and cashmere. The mood evokes a sense of heritage-inspired luxury, with a contemporary refinement, empowering women with effortless style, so they can get on with the important things in life.

How do they contribute to the overall look and feel of the collection?

Premium fabrications such as merino, silk satins, cashmere, and velvets not only elevate the tactile experience but also contribute to the richness and depth of the designs. These materials provide luxurious comfort and practicality for the season, and enhance the visual appeal, inspiring the wearer on their own style journey.

What's next for your brand after this winter range? Any hints about your upcoming projects or inspirations?

Shjark remains true to our commitment to classic style and superior craftsmanship. While I can't reveal too much about our upcoming collections just yet, we do have a continued dedication to delivering premium modular wardrobes that empower women to make conscious and responsible sartorial choices. Stay tuned for more updates!

Finally everyone wants to be at home on these winter nights ahead. Any recommendations for a show/book/music ?

I'm a real sucker for a well-styled period drama. On winter evenings when I manage to get some me-time (after the chaos of pre-schooler bedtimes!) Ill be working my way through Taylor Sheridans back catalogue of series, and re-runs of Peaky Blinders in anticipation for the Movie they have begun production on this year - can not wait for that.
