London Graduate Fashion Week Collaboration

31 July 2018

Over the past two weeks we have been proud to showcase two talented graduate designers in our Marylebone shop window. If you didn’t manage to get down to check them out don’t worry – take a look below.

Lucie is a recent graduate from the University of East London. Her colourful collection takes inspiration from natural forms and unpredictable linear structures. Lucie’s use of colour clashing combined with her bold mark making gave her designs a strong presence in our window that really held their own.
We’re obsessed with these hand painted canvas espadrilles that matched perfectly with our heart-shaped keying.
Caroline loved how Lucie truly fell in love with the process of knit and hand stitching, which contrasts with the quick and sketchy quality of her bold prints.

Penny’s knitwear collection, made from cotton and merino combinations, is inspired by skiwear. The aesthetic of après ski evolved around the glamour of high society and in focusing on iconic 1960/70s print influences, the collection and colour pallete exude the vibrancy of the scene.

It was Penny’s sense of playfulness that resonated with Caroline making her want to showcase her designs in the window.
