As we mentioned in our London Fashion Week Overview, we were delighted to catch up with Henry and Felicity Brown again. This was for two very good reasons really. Firstly is that we were really excited to see where the Felicity had decided to take the collection. The SS’11 show was fabulous so it was really exciting to see how she had developed the collection on from there. The second reason is that they are two of the nicest people that we have come across within the fashion industry.
If you’d like more background on Felicity, do have a read of the interview with her that we posted a little while ago. It details what she was being inspired by when creating this AW’11 collection, so its great to see the results and have taken the journey with her full circle. Felicity Brown reinterprets her unique take on deconstruction for the AW’11 collection, incorporating inspiration from cubism and tribal markings, along with elements of striped back theatrical costume. Voluminous layer upon layer of raw edged textiles are balanced with strictly boned corsets laced up with cotton ribbons. Each piece is a work of art realized through her incredible artisanal approach.
Along with the dresses sits Felicity’s T shirt label, No 23, which this season integrates back to the dress collection through the use of the same colour palette and pattern inspiration. If you’d like something from Felicity Brown’s collection to wear everyday, the T shirts are the perfect option and we have our eye on several!
Thanks to Felicity for spending so much time with us explaining her working practices and her design vision. Thanks to Henry for sending over these amazing images of the new collection.
