The evolution of the eponymous brand Edun under the creative direction of Danielle Sherman is blossoming season upon season. With such an experienced and enthusiastic creative at the helm one can see the product with fresh eyes. The brands running theme is balancing tradition versus modernity, no mean feat. This season Sherman draws inspiration from Morocco, artisanal craft is sat back with masculine tailoring techniques. Garments are deconstructed, finished with raw seams and frayed edges making them less perfect. Simple appealing separates are a clever antidote paired back with traditional woven jacquards.
I hope you have all had a good start to the week. With fashion week well underway in New York I have collated some essential items to get through this busy period. These include reading material for the long commute to and from the studio. Graphic accessories, essential stationary and a strong scent to help us unwind.

2. LOEWE - Medium Pouch Tan/Blk
3. Craft Design Technology - Pen Case & Stapler
4. PORTER Magazine
5. TOM DIXON - Fire
6. LOEWE - 90x90 B&W Stripes

Although I am a womenswear designer I am always drawn to menswear. Whether that is due to the intrinsic attention to detail, finishings, linear aspect who knows. So far the collections that I most relate to are Louis Vuitton, Loewe and Lemaire. Each show shows classicism but with new found energy, I put this down to the creative minds behind these brands. Which include Kim jones, J.W. Anderson and Christopher Lemaire.

Welcome to my neighbourhood. It was such a pleasant surprise to see The Selby feature one of my local bakeries Violet. Located on route to broadway market, they serve great coffee and a delicious array of sweet treats. One of the best things about living in East London is the variety of independent businesses and entrepreneurs.
