3 hot NEW designers we LOVED at London Fashion Week 2011

Sister by Sibling pink fluffy jacket

Men’s knitwear label Sibling has been making waves on the London scene for a few seasons now. This season, for S/S ’12 the design trio, Sid Bryan, Joe Bates and Cozette McCreery have turned their attention to knitted garments for LADIES of discerning taste, and Sister by Sibling is what they came up with.

Cute graphic sweaters, with an ‘all the fun of the fair’ theme. We like the LOVE jumpers (apparently Sir Topshop, Phillip Green put in a personal order) and the krazy kolor leopard print twinset AND the fluffy pink jacket the best of all. We’ll be seeking these out in January in the shops fo’ shizzle!

Piers Atkinson feathered headdresses

Piers Atkinson cherry hats

A favourite, but still worth a mention every season, because he’s so cool, is Piers Atkinson, milliner and stalwart of the Hedonism exhibition. We love his out-RAGEIOUSLY feathery marabou creations, his upgraded violet cherries and these swift-as-an-arrow little numbers. Wedding goers take note, his creations have graced the heads of Anna Dello Russo and Lady Gaga but you too could commission him to make you something special . . . just check out his website, piersatkinson.com Ooh la la!

Zoe Jordan silk shorts silk parka and sequin topZoe Jordan metallic top and grey skirtJoe Jordan orange qsequin dress

Zoe Jordan (formerly known Irwin and Jordan) held a catwalk show where we greatly admired their use of silky luxury fabrics to create sporty parkas and shorts, their slithery snakeskin pieces (a massive trend already for S/S ’12) as well as some show-stopping full length jersey dresses. We loved their rusty, metallic palette too and would easily sling one of their sequinned numbers into our basket without a moment’s hesitation come the new season.

Well done one and all!
