Friday Fives: VALLIYAN by Nitya S/s 13

19th July 2013

Recently my Friday Fives have been all about accessories and I continue this week by sharing Valliyan by Nitya– S/s 13 collection. The label was founded in 2008 by Nithya Arora who instantly wowed the fash pack with her distinctive designs which her bio describes as…

“….reflect (ing) a sculptural textured quality, entirely handcrafted in India and most of the pieces are one of a kind. In her collections one can see vintage influences, bright Indian hues and detail, topped with a New York edge.”

Her roll call of Bolly fans is endless and her pieces regularly grace the pages of the Vogue India, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire & Grazia. And last year she won Grazia’s Young Designers Award for Best Accessories Designer last year.

As regular readers know I’m partial to a pretty look book and this one is ohh soo pretty. The images were shot by Prarthna Singh and have a Lula magazine (my fav magazine!) editorial vibe. Enjoy!

Label Lust: Sophie Hulme

29th Nov 2012

Sophie Hulme was on my list of ‘10 British Designers you ought to know’ for Strut 120. That and her win as the best emerging talent in accessory design at the British Fashion Awards last night prompted me to do a Label Lust post. Her collections are full of pieces that are beautifully made, classic with a masculine edge and totally wearable. Even though her clothes are making waves in the fash world, for me it’s still all about the totes and messenger bags that she first started the label with. Enjoy!
