Season 04 of Meta Campania Collective expands on the theme of the artist’s wardrobe, realized in the highest quality fabrics and constructions. Color remains as essential as material and fit. A core palette of black, midnight blue, dark-chocolate brown, white, Weimaraner grey and light beige are here highlighted with meta blue, light rose pink, mint, and bottle green.

This season sees the staple workwear jacket joined by a workwear trouser fashioned in exaggerated proportions and a variety of materials. The versatile, everyday trouser has been produced in wale cotton corduroy, midweight Italian cashmere, cotton cashmere, raw Japanese denim, and tight-woven cotton oxford, giving a unique drape and feel to each.
Tailoring is also revamped. Relaxed, modern, and elegant, Season 04 adds a selection of suiting in velvet, wool twills, and a wide-spaced pinstripe running up and down midnight-blue virgin wool. A double-breasted cashmere jacket, again in midnight blue, adds a final accent.
Ample silhouettes, created without economizing on fabric, convey confidence and
immediate luxury. This is most evident in outerwear pieces: an oversized update to the classic peacoat, a cashmere blouson, an Italian nylon parka and hand-quilted bomber jacket. A hooded wrap-coat in ultra-soft boiled wool or lamb shearling can be worn draped open and free-flowing or cinched and belted to produce volume.
The sense of luxury through choice of fabric and just-the-right proportion is also felt in the knitwear: A chunky cashmere rib-knit cardigan—as much outerwear as sweater—is richly understated; the MCC raglan-sleeve cashmere crewneck returns, now in Shetland wool and mohair along with classic cashmere. Shirting follows the same fabric-first approach: cotton, wale cotton corduroy, cashmere and cotton-cashmere have been selected for quality, hand, and wear without compromise.
Cotton jersey completes the wardrobe: ribbed tanks and long-sleeved shirts are ideal for layering, while MCC sweats and t-shirts are grown-up versions of today’s ubiquitous streetwear.
Finally, the same luxury nonchalance of the ready-to-wear collection runs through this season’s accessories. Unlined, cross-body bags and tote bags are constructed in lamb suede, calf and deer leather. A pair of soft and burly calf-leather boots are down-filled and shearling-lined for natural warmth and comfort.
This season’s look book was created in collaboration with artist Phillipa Horan.
Horan painted directly over prints of photographs of the collection, which were then rephotographed and laid out by BUERO.PARIS.
Horan is an award-winning apocalyptic multi-media artist who lives and works in London. For more than 12 years she has been at the forefront of growing negative carbon emission sculptures, totems, and functional objects out of mycelium—the root of a mushroom—using waste textiles as a substrate.
Horan grew the first figurative large-scale mycelium sculpture in 2015 for Ballroom Marfa's annual commission in Texas and has contributed to books about mycelium, the environment, and rhizomes with Merlin Sheldrake, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, and the Calder Foundation. Horan has a sustainable studio in Piccadilly, London, hosting and running a community outreach program as well as an art gallery space with a sustainability thread. All recent projects pivot around the natural world, the environment, and how to evolve and improve humans’ relationship to both. Horan has exhibited at the Hayward Gallery, Ballroom Marfa, and many international galleries.
