My Picks - Edun Fall 15 RTW

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.

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.

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.
