Charles Anastase: ‘Why I'm showing in London...'

05 September 2008


We love Charles Anastase. And we're in good company. Chloe Sevigny, Keira Knightley, Emma Watson and Beth Ditto are all fans too. So we were super excited when Charles announced he was showing during London rather than Paris fashion week this year. Why? ‘London's more niche,' he told us. ‘I think Londoners are more open to creativity. Plus I've just moved here personally and most of my major stockists are here, so I just figured it made sense.' But what about the clothes? Well, when Charles came into the Grazia offices to show us his pre-spring '09 collection we fell in love (and not just with his cheeky grin). The collection is ethereal but grown-up, girly but not saccharine, chic but not playful. (Check out pictures below). We're particularly lusting after the light-as-air lace and chiffon cream dresses and the classic nautical matelot knits. So we can't wait to see what he does for his mainline....
