As part of London Fashion Week, design focused brand, Harper & Blake, showcased their Autumn/Winter ‘16 collection at one of Shoreditch’s newest creative hubs, London HOUSE Studio.
The collection has been designed by one of London and Ukraine’s rising talents, Alina Zamanova (www.alinazamanova.com) and consists of eight silk scarves which have been inspired by predators of the wild.
Alina is an innovative creator, constantly pushing the barriers of fashion’s perception of beauty. She comes from a fashion illustration background and has previously designed prints for Alexander McQueen.
Autumn winter 2016 titled “Predators” is Harper & Blake’s debut collection of fashion scarves. Inspired by nature and its strongest inhabitants, the collection is made up of eight hand drawn de-signs and brings to life Harper & Blake’s key foundation; strength and ambition. Half of the collection is designed in order to reflect Harper’s minimalistic and classic personality. Whereas the other half represents the experimental and adventurous Blake style that is more fluid and ever-changing.
The showcase has been designed and produced by Art Director, Artist and Producer, Joseph Stephen (www.josephstephen.london) who has worked with clients such as Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Topshop, Tatler and Harpers Bazaar.
The set was designed to reflect London as an urban jungle, tying in the theme of the collection and the city in which it is being launched.
