Maverick Fashion

A look into new designers today at London Fashion Week….

Showcasing at the Strand Palace Hotel,  they set to impress in their static exhbition and catwalk shows.

Opening the show schedule for Fashion Mavericks was Rinda Salmun who made her debut LFW show to a nearly full house. Her collection was titled Neurosis and addresses the unconscious human mind. It is a different dimension where reality and dreams collide. Suitable for evening and day wear the “science of the dream” theme featured digital artwork printed on to jersey, cotton, silk georgette and silk twill. These were then combined with synthetic leather, silk and nylon to create interesting shapes. Particular favourites were the head pieces, crystal details and jumpsuits.

Static exhibition highlight – Eyewear by Nicola Kate Williams.

A trained a jewellery designer , her passion covers the subject of adornment. Her work began to steer in the direction of eyewear and her experience in both modern and traditional techniques brings together a product that is edgy, wearable and a popular choice for men and women.

“Eyewear as an accessory inspires me, I am intrigued by its potential to adorn the eyes and transform the silhouette of the face.”

These pieces in particular stood out and with such a unique spin on her work, the world will be seeing a lot more of Williams.

Maison Martin Margiela is a top fashion house which recycles vintage pieces into high fashion items at an all-white laboratory-style design studio in Paris. It is partnering with Cutler and Gross to launch a collaborative eyewear collection for SS11. From playfully ill-fitting lenses to wrap-around glamour, the two top design houses have joined forces to bring originality to the competitive sunglasses market. The first collection is made up of two lines: Anatomic, an enlarged rounded frame, and Wrong Size (pictured), with lenses seemingly ill-fitting the frame. These will be available to buy from both Margiela and Cutler & Gross in 2 months time.

Gnomes invading our city

Follow the friendship gnomes

Once upon a time, seven gnomes grew up in a small house in London’s Notting Hill. They played, they dreamed and they peaked over the garden fence at the Capital and wondered just what was out there. So they set out to explore and ended up all over the country.

Now’s it’s your chance to find them, make friends and win a Links of London friendship bracelet. The Gnomes have already made lots of friends and have been hob nobbing with Cat Deeley.

Over the next seven weeks, you’ll find the seven Gnomes in six different cities across the country and somewhere on the website.

Sign up to the official Facebook page or Twitter feed and follow the clues on how to find them. Good luck!

Gucci exclusive for Capri

Whilst away this week I came across an exclusive line for the Capri Gucci store, inspired by the colours of the famous Blue Grotto, this nautical touch to the classic shaped range gave a nod to the fashionable holiday island. Small details include ‘Capri’ stamped into the leather tags and bag interiors as well as a sea breeze scented candle in cool, turquoise leather holder.
