Bugatti gears up for London fashion store
Evening Standard
22 August 2014


Quote:
Bugatti is opening its first European fashion store in London.

The super-car brand launched its first clothing line at Milan Fashion Week last year and is searching for shop locations around the world.

It has this week agreed a deal for a store at 20 Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, which will sell its Ettore Bugatti luxury clothing, lifestyle and accessories line. Bugatti, a French company known for its Veyron super-car, was founded by an Italian in 1909 but is now owned by Volkswagen.

The Knightsbridge store is owned by Asif Aziz’s Criterion Capital. The firm, which also has the Trocadero on its portfolio, was advised by property agent Nash Bond.

The shop will open by next year. It is a joint venture with Swiss watch group Parmigiani Fleurier and glass and jewellery firm Lalique, which will also sell products in the 5,400 sq ft shop.

Richard Scott of Nash Bond said: “To have a world-renowned luxury brand such as Bugatti choose London for their first store confirms the capital as the number one worldwide luxury retail destination.” Bugatti also plans Hong Kong and Beijing stores.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label
London Fashion Week | Spring/Summer 2015


Quote:
Vivienne Westwood makes a fashion statement for Yes
Herald Scotland | September 2014

Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood has offered her support for the independence campaign - sending her models down the runway at London Fashion Week wearing Yes badges.

The notoriously outspoken 73-year-old placed the badges on models' hats and lapels at the Red Label Spring/Summer 2015 show, before blasting those against independence as "frightened and stupid".

In a statement that was placed on every guest's seat, she said: "I am so excited. Fingers crossed they will win. Because, if they do, it could be the turning point towards a better world. They could lead by example."

Hunter Original
London Fashion Week | Spring/Summer 2015


Quote:
Anna Wintour and Stella McCartney at Hunter Original at London fashion week
The Guardian | September 2014

The identical faint smize, the burgundy/navy/white palette, the arm and leg crossing. Also, the eagle eyed may have noticed that the wife of Hunter creative director Alasdhair Willis is, in fact, Stella McCartney.

The McCartney clan were out in force for Hunter’s second London fashion week showing, flanking American powerhouse attendees Wintour and Richard Buckley (Mr Tom Ford) in all their transatlantic aristocracy.

Nancy Shevell wore low-heeled ankle boots - not exactly a wellie, but a nod towards solidarity - while her husband Sir Paul McCartney, the epitome of the rock grandee in black jeans, must surely have enjoyed the Yellow Submarine references scattered over his son-in-law’s catwalk. A humble Wellington boot brand? Er, that will be a no

Burberry
London Fashion Week | Spring/Summer 2015


Quote:
At London Fashion Week, Christopher Bailey for Burberry
New York Times | September 2014

The Scottish question may be the biggest question in Britain right now, but in the smaller world within a world that is fashion, another issue loomed large on Monday — one with its own set of implications and repercussions.

Could Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s chief creative officer and, as of last May, chief executive, do what no designer had done before: move seamlessly between aesthetics and accounts without sacrificing the one for the other; prove art could coexist with commerce (and, more pertinently, quarterly reports) in one person?

Little wonder Mr. Bailey said backstage when discussing his spring show, his first real aesthetic statement after adjusting to his new dual role, that he was thinking about “contradiction” and “rebirth.”

This translated as a nostalgia-infused collection of abbreviated and peplumed denim jackets, the hem finished in fringes of shearling, and 1970s suede trenches with patent collars over dégradé pleated and collaged chiffon dresses, some dangling oversize paillettes. Prints were Impressionist watercolors or snatches of titles and insects (honey bees, dragonflies) taken from the covers of 1940s books and blown up on gabardine to give strapless dresses and trenches a naïve, crafty feel. And it was all paired with leather sneakers or Birkenstocks the colors of butterfly wings, and set against a live solo performance by James Bay.

It was often lyrical, and occasionally lovely, but unquestionably repetitive; two notes, the tough and the filigree, outerwear and flower fairy dresses, iterated over and over. Granted, at least they had rhythm (except for some weird insert of “glossy leather” at the hip of a chiffon tea frock that simply weighed the whole thing down like a wedge of Edam cheese), and those coats should sell and sell, but in the end, it was limited. It lacked layers (metaphoric, not literal) and dimension. But as a statement of intent, it was a promising (re)start.

Kanye West's Adidas range was inspired by the London riots
The Independent
February 2015


Quote:
Kanye West had the trainer-grabbing London looters of the 2011 riots in mind when he designed his new Adidas Originals Collection.

In a new interview with Style, the rapper also described himself as “the Robin Hood of fashion” because he believes there is “some information” in his designs “that can help people have better lives”.

“I was living in London at that time and saw the way that the kids wanted the clothes and I didn’t have the skill set to do the more inexpensive clothes,” he said of being in the capital when the violent events erupted.

Designers dabble with decades at London Fashion Week

Designers dabbled with different decades for inspiration at London Fashion Week, offering a heady mixture of patterned flares, oversized sheepskin jackets and printed mini-dresses in their latest collections.

Burberry, Vivienne Westwood and Topshop Unique showcased designs influenced by Britain's countryside and folk craft, with printed velvet dresses and fringed trench coats, continuing a bohemian '70s theme into the autumn/winter season.

Designers also called upon the '60s and '80s for inspiration this season, with printed mini dresses, oversized leather dresses and puff-ball jackets seen at J.W. Anderson and Jonathan Saunders' shows earlier in the week.
