Fall 2015 Menswear Overview

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.

The Selby - Violet

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.

KNIT - Pure & Simple

It can be a hard look to carry off but when it works...it works. The trend for head to toe knit was evident in the pre collections presented by Joseph and Stella McCartney for Pre Fall.

My Picks - The Row Pre-Fall 15 RTW

Happy New Year everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful time over the festive season. Well this kicks my new year off to a cracking start! The Row's pre fall collection. Full of austere yet elegant garments with more emphasis on colour. The paprika tone sat back with lilac is a particularly striking combination. I am currently in India on my first business trip of 2015, it is somewhat colder compared with previous years. The sheared fur shawl is just what I need draped over my shoulders.

Egon Schiele: The Radical Nude Exhibition

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of seeing the Egon Schiele: The Radical Nude exhibition at the Courtauld gallery.
It is rare for me to get the chance to go to an exhibition of late, but one things for sure, It will be my new years resolution to change that. 

I have admired the work of Schiele since I was at De Monfort Art School, he was a central figure of Austrian Expressionism. His erotic and frank depiction of the human form has always intrigued me.
I am most drawn to the artists self portraits and nude drawings of 1910.
Bold charcoal outlines convey the human form, often heightened with the use of obscure watercolour tones. 

These drawings have the power to shock and unsettle especially due to the unfamiliar poses and choice of models. I wonder what impact this had on the Viennese society at the time? As we now know a hundred years on Egon Schiele's legacy has grown in abundance. 

If you get the opportunity to see this exhibition its a must. Get tickets HERE:

My Picks - Edun Pre-Fall 15 RTW

Again, yet another strong season for Edun, overseen by Creative Director Danielle Sherman. As a fashion designer I have always been taught research is paramount in every collection. I loved looking at the sources of inspiration for Edun's Pre Fall collection. References included the village houses of Burkina Faso, to the work of Frank Stella and Japanese artist Yuko Nishimura.
