Apu Jan SS18 Collection at London Fashion Week

In this season, Apu Jan tries to convey his thoughts on short-lived flowers and their withering.

He uses colours and textures to imitate falling petals,

Titled 'Before Last Petal Falls', the collection pays homage to O Henry's The last Leaf and remotely echoes the theme of Edgar Allen Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher.

Patterns include: blossom petals, fallen petals, leaves, trees and  spring snow,.

Hidden amongst the leaves and petals are ink pots, manuscripts and artist's palettes to echo the theme.

You'll also find storybooks, clocks, fantasy beasts and paleantology - all elements central to the brand.

 Apu Jan mixes various knitting techniques; machine and hand knit, creating a series of fine gauge knitwear that are suitable to be worn in the warmer months of spring and summer.

Apu Jan heavily uses silk knitting and prints in his design
Fabrics include his self developed unique jacquard and chiffon.

In tailoring, Apu Jan includes oriental style element such as the mandarin collar and horse hoot sleeves.

Main colour palette is grey, black and white

 with a smattering of pastel blue and pink to symbolise the petals.
