The collection sees Drinkwater explore a multitude of techniques including textiles, movement and sculptural silhouettes, employing them to create drawings which became monochrome statement pieces with the Alpha60 touch. The collection is inspired by Drinkwater’s own trip to the French Polynesia a few months back.
“The drawings I made for Alpha60 are recollections of my time earlier this year in the French Polynesia. The flora and fauna, the people, textiles and objects – signifying elements that have been recomposed and re-contextualised to create a new body of work,” James recounts.
Works on paper to works on fabric. Inspired by the flora and fauna, the people, textiles and objects of the French Polynesia. We are extremely excited about the launch of Alpha60 x James Drinkwater collaboration. Launching at our Chapter House store at 6pm on Wednesday night.

The collection is launching at Alpha60’s Chapter House space tomorrow, November 8, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Following the launch, Drinkwater will have sculptures and paper works set up in the space as an ongoing installation for two weeks.
