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!

Harvey Nichols A/w 12 Press Day

9th April 2012

9th April 2012

A little late in posting the pics, Harvey Nick’s A/w 12 press day took place last Weds and I’d sum up the event as ‘Brilliantly British’ The rails were as the team described ‘an edit of the most enchanting and covetable labels around’ and many of those labels were indeed British. (the visuals from the press day book show the designer mix)

My favourites included the relaxed, chic pieces from Lula & Co and Isabel Marant and the yummy prints at Peter Pilotto (LOVED the beadwork over the prints) and Mary Katrantzou. Over on accessories highlights for me were the beaded collars at Dannijo and Sophie Hulme’s handbags.

Over at Menswear texture was key, how amazing are the studded Louboutin’s?
