LFW Interview: Leutton Postle

Subversive knitwear duo Jenny and Sam aka Leutton Postle this season looked deep into the dusty Sahara in their patchwork, mismatched AW collection. The beautifully soft, neutral palate juxtaposed the aggressive tribal beats and yelps played over the catwalk, making for quite an arresting show, aurally at least. Ladylike separates,

But their collaborations for SS12 didn’t stop there. Pierson and Lawlor even got the Royal Ballet involved to bring their first Pierson Lawlor line to life by



LFW: Pringle – Show Report

It seems relevant, somehow, that Pringle, unlike its headscarf-wearing competitor Burberry, is not an English label. Instead of either wallowing in anodyne, unthinking rehashes of its classics or totally abandoning its history, here was an intelligent, subtle collection produced of a house mindful of its roots without being suffocated by …
