Nice, but the women's line has so much more life than the mens.
Great line, very underrated and under represented. It will catch on though especially as trends turn away from all slim everything and back toward a more regular/relaxed fit. I also agree as a collection the womens is a bit more developed than the mens. Stall great stuff happening and worth seeking out.
Wonder what she´s inspired by, any informative interviews out there?
Nice short interview by shoreman for TBS
Couple longer pieces
I know there's also an in-depth feature in the spring 2010 issue of Inventory Mag (haven't read it), if you feel like tracking it down.
Really beautiful stuff; thank you for posting. The looseness of everything feels so well-considered.
a piece she wrote in friday's guardian newspaper:
The years fly by, and Brad and I suddenly have the same taste
Just because I like it doesn't mean I'd wear it
I had a look around the Wigmore St. store earlier this year. Its a nice space, well worth a visit if you're in the area, I liked seeing all the lamps and homeware there too. I may be tempted to go back and try some of shirts from this season.
I like this quote, having spent the past week traveling around the East Anglian coast. I can see how that landscape might be an inspiration for her designs.
I've been looking at her some of her suiting, and I was struck by how much the shape of the shoulder, the fabric and even the stitching was very similar to the two vintage suits I have that were made in London in the early 60s. So I wasn't surprised to read her comments above on being inspired by the 50s and 60s. I wonder who makes them...
As ever, Japan gets a great range of exclusive products. Margaret Howell JP
the texture on the saddle crew looks superb
Pretty much everything she does is perfect.
One of the best out there right now.
Based on the info accompanying the FW2013 campaign I posted earlier, the suits are made in Filottrano, Italy. Not sure if it's brand own factory or if it's the place that also makes the Lardini & co. suff
I have an awesome cashmere navy shawl collar cardigan from a year or two ago from south willard when all you fools were sleepin. Have a couple of her shirts from before that are ok.
Don't like the mhl shit though. Of course sw was the first to carry both lines in the states as she didn't sell to anyone before that.
