Katie Eary, one of London’s most promising young designers, showcased her AW12 collection Darker Side of the Fairy Tale today.

Aino Vainio is one Finland’s most promising young designers – her newest knitwear collection I Know Why No is a hand-coloured and delicate spring ensemble, inspired, she claims, by films Waterworld, Mad Max, Lost Boys and Andy Warhol’s artwork for the seminal Velvet Underground & Nico LP.

Wonderkind: Confezioni Crosby
Benedetta Antonelli and Jonathan Joory are not your average couple. Following a jaunt to Detroit and Chicago, the pair sparked a connection between traditional American workwear and the femininity of Italian style, and so Confezioni Crosby was born. With a DNA of washed-out canvas dresses and bright yellow Fisherman’s jackets, the twosome have transformed utilitarian […]

London Fashion Week – HOLLY FULTON
Perhaps Holly Fulton was feeling a little nostalgic of summer when it came to designing her AW12 collection as neither the fabrics, nor the colour palette used for her offering was pragmatic for a typical British winter. Although, who ever said fashion has to be practical?
Diesel Black Gold AW12
Diesel Black Gold’s womenswear collection for autumn, was shown at New York’s Pier 57 last week as part of New York Fashion Week. A gaggle of stars, including actress Emily Rossum and model Amber Le Bon, attended the front row as svelte models unveiled a scaley, androgynous and detailed collection. Flick through the gallery to […]
London Fashion Week – DAVID KOMA
David Koma is a master of flaunting the female form. His AW12 collection yesterday stayed true to his signature disposition of contoured silhouettes but with a distinct air of seduction that has not been seen from the Koma woman before, which hardly surprised us considering Koma’s influence was drawn from Boldini’s portrayal of Marchesa Luisa […]
London Fashion Week – PRINGLE
Alistair Carr may only be in his sophomore season as Design Director at Pringle but based solely upon the performance executed today, we would have assumed he had been at it for years. The austere surroundings at Philips de Pury made sure that no attention was stolen away from the collection focused around the classic […]
London Fashion Week – ACNE
We had been expecting great things from Acne, but what materialised in the concrete surroundings at the Old Sorting Office exceeded our expectations tenfold. We were ushered to our seats, cocktails in hand and finding it hard to contain our excitement by the vast space filled with a buzzing audience.
Kumiko Watari – ANCIENT WONDERS
Kumiko Watari‘s newest collection, Ancient Wonders, is a collision of Egypt-inspired pattern motifs, disproportionate fabric cuts and surrealist drawings. Wonderland caught up with the Osaka-born Saint Martins graduate to talk fine art, aliens and Might-T, her label-name.
