Mulberry Front Row Spring 2017

Mon, 09/19/2016 - 13:57
The Mulberry show venue which, for those unfamiliar with the geography of London, was in the E16 postcode, a former industrial area, was probably the most remote venue choice in recent memory and generally agreed to have been an act of cruelty to the show-goers. Of course it was late, with Olivia Palermo steaming in after the show had started, her face a picture of fury. But most other VIPs had managed to make it in time, even if some of the out-of-towners got to see a lot more of London than most do (or would want to). It didn’t dim the excitement for South Korean model and street-style star Irene Kim and Chinese fashion blogger Han Huo Huo, both in town for the Mulberry show. “I love London much more than Paris, because I think London is more clean and really easy for shopping,” Han told WWD. “And I like the food much better. It’s much better than Paris; There’s a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown that is amazing and I always go to.” Kim was also excited about London’s gastronomical offerings. “I really wanted to go to Duck and Waffle because I love their Happy Fried Duck with the waffles and the syrup,”

Boden Hosts Future British Presentation

Sat, 09/17/2016 - 14:09
CULTIVATING CREATIVITY: British high-street retailer Boden and the British Fashion Council are highlighting the collections of emerging labels as part of Boden’s Future British campaign. The five designers who received support to present their spring collections are Camilla Elphick, Sam McCoach of Le Kilt, Alice Ashby of Blake LDN, Caitlin Charles-Jones and Bruta. Charles-Jones and Bruta joined Elphick, McCoach and Ashby, who were already awarded the sponsorship in January. Their collections are on display at the BFC’s show space at Brewer Street Car Park. McCoach, the Scottish creative director of Le Kilt, called the  initiative  “the perfect association in terms of future creation.” “Before I started on my own I used to work for Fred Perry and used to design the men’s wear there for five years. I can’t even explain how invaluable that was as I learned so much about what it is I actually want to do with my brand, and the same with Boden.” McCoach recently relaunched her e-commerce store and plans to mount an exhibition of portraits of her siblings in London later this year. “It will be of my little sisters in Scotland with a mix of my products and what they wear. They’re 16 and 17 — teenagers — so it’s really raw

Filippa K Hosts LFW Dinner With The Gentlewoman and Fantastic Man

Fri, 09/16/2016 - 19:48
FASHION DIET: “When the editor of Fantastic Man calls you and asks you to perform during fashion week, you don’t say no. And you don’t f–k it up,” said James Rapson of the up-and-coming band Lung Dart at the dinner hosted by the men’s title, The Gentlewoman and Swedish label Filippa K, at the David Roberts Art Foundation in the Camden section of London. “I haven’t had any dairy for three days and I haven’t eaten any carbs today so I don’t get bloated,” said Rapson at a dinner that took place on the eve of London Fashion Week. Rapson and bandmate Tim Clay were nervous about their fashion crowd debut. “We’ve never done a gig like this before,” Clay said. “We’re singing two songs accompanied by just a piano and that’s very different from our usual woozy sound. In fact, I hope everyone just ignores us and continues talking like we’re the background music.” The pair, whose debut album was released this week, have been friends since university, where they studied music. They came up with the name for their band when they lived together in east London. “We had this housemate who used to smoke all the time and we called the
