Collections


Autumn-Winter 2021 “Nueve”

Taking inspiration from the Afro-Colombian funeral traditions and the nine nights of mourning. The aim is to celebrate life, while the spirit can happily transition to the afterlife through a series of rituals that occur each night. From building altars, eating and drinking to leaving a glass of water in case the spirit gets thirsty. These traditions and symbolism played an important role in how the collection came to be. The garments explore ideas surrounding death and the acts of mourning inspired by the works of artists Marisol Escobar and Doris Salcedo.

Spring-Summer 2021 “Fire Ants”

The collection takes inspiration from the classic Latin American novel One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. The characters of the book, go from room to room in a damned house, as a symbol for solitude, an existential trap that carries on through each generation of the Buendías. Droguett imagined the women of the Buendia family and captured their complex and unique spirits by developing garments that embody their fears, mistakes, passions and obsessions, inviting the viewer into their world. 

Autumn-Winter 2020 “C-13”

This collection takes inspiration from one of the most infamous cities in the world, Medellin, Droguett’s hometown. The main focus for this season is a series of garments and outfits inspired by the neo-landscape of the slums with a structural take on the history of displacement that took place in the ’90s. People had to become nomads and leave their homes behind. Garments serve a dual purpose and take on a conceptual role with a series of 3d pocket compartments with chunky metallic zippers, that not only create a mountain-like silhouette but also pose the question: if could only take what you’re wearing with you, what would you take? But what if somehow you could take a piece of your land and store your memories within the same piece of clothing? This question became the hypothesis of the design development for Droguett.


Spring-Summer 2020

Fallen angels in the Colombian Forest
The collection takes inspiration from a story of magical realism, “A Very Old Man With
Enormous Wings” by Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The short story tells the tale of a man and his wife who find an old man with wings in their garden, the old man is, in fact, an angel sent to heal their sick child. As the angel does not fit the fantastical description of a typical angel the man with wings is misunderstood and housed in a chicken coop.

The story indites an element of ordinary life contrasted with fantasy and magic, calling to question the manner in which humans make sense of their world and our openness to interpretation. Designer Jennifer Droguett’s collection draws on the story’s focus of hiding and showing, the seen and unseen, the obvious and discreet. The idea of fallen angels moving in and out of the forest, trying to hide and camouflage within the trees and leaves.
