Ones To Watch - Krasimira Stoyneva AW17

#WearHairNotFur is the motto of Krasimira Stoyneva`s signature

 "My aim is to make an ultimate luxury alternative of fur by using synthetic hair. Using hair allows me to create an endless possibilities of colour and texture varieties in my garments. It gives it stand out shout and incredible luxury feel. I believe that hair with all its potential will become new material to be used within the fashion industry. I would love to be one of the pioneers that made that possible."


In this way, the hair fabric has soon become the brand trade-mark.


 In every collection the designer presented a young minded and self-confident woman; a creative person with a strong personality and a very unique style: “she can be what she likes to be, she likes to feel free, she only needs to imagine ..... ” said Krasimira to describe her vision.


 The innovation is a constant research for Krasimira: the hair changes meaning and shapes in every collection.
 Materials, fabrics and patterns are the main elements that characterise the label.

Valerie Moser Cotton Clutches - Wearable Art

This year, Valerie Moser has announced the ‘Chaotic Bliss’ collection, new for 2017 - a graffiti-like collection with bold paint strokes, feminine figures and daring free-hand painting.

Valerie Moser’s hero product is its range of contemporary clutch bags. Featuring vibrant, hand-drawn images printed onto a natural fabric, its selection of clutches turn an accessory into a wearable form of art, providing a practical yet fashionable outfit addition to see users through from day to night. Earthy tones such as khaki, turquoise and red prevail throughout, alongside accents of black, white and neutral tones. The beautiful mess of the lines make for creatively fun, edgy and intricate compositions.
Like the rest of the Valerie Moser range, all bags are handmade to the highest quality, featuring motifs infused by the designer’s personality, printed onto a natural, tactile cotton fabric.
 Valerie Moser commented, “Being trained in graphic design and typography, I am always drawn to fashion that is bold, daring and tells its own story. No other article enables such expression as a handbag. Even a simple, basic outfit can be injected with character with the bag that is worn alongside it. With this in mind, I created my range to enable my clients to portray their personality using the artistic designs that I create.”
 Ms Moser added, “The name Chaotic Bliss is my description of Bali which oddly creates a link with Greece, my home, as both places share this raw, beautiful, messy feel. Every visual element is absorbed and constitutes a source of inspiration for me as a designer.”

Paul Costelloe AW17 Collection

For AW17 Paul Costelloe’s inspiration is taken from Alison Weir’s historic novel ‘The Lost Tudor Princess’: the Life of Margaret Douglas Countess of Lennox’. Like the beautiful and tempestuous Margaret, the collection is bold in spirit, dominant in image and strong in content. 

With a nod to the Tudor period, sleeves are exaggerated and lengths are diverse, with styles such as bell, hanging and semi puffed sleeves bringing back the excitement that was once relished by courtesans of the great Palaces.


One quilted leather dress emulates the Tudor man’s skirted jerkin/doublet worn with paned sleeves (cut-outs) revealing the fabric underneath – then the height of fashion

The collection takes part of its colour palette from Weir’s line; ‘From the store at Whitehall…cloth of gold in crimson, russet, tawny and yellow, mulberry


… white and cream, and wool furred with powdered ermine.’



Never compromising on quality, this season sees the best of European fabrics used including:

Italian quilted cottons and silk jacquards, 



Irish tweeds from Magee’s..... 

, the finest wools and cashmere from Como,


 Pure French cottons and English latex.  Here the ruffled shirts echo the long linen shirts worn by the Tudor man and the latex leggings their hose. 



Outerwear dominates the collection with statement coats and jackets.  All will be ideal for the winter races.



The brand's trademark feminine baby doll dress makes an appearance in silk jacquard with the low square Tudor style neckline.

Also loving the deep patch pockets on the skirts!!
