Nick Ellwood British illustrator Nick Ellwood created this season’s cover illustration for the luxury edition of SHOP London. His detailed line drawing and sharp character observation made him the perfect choice to reimagine Paddington Bear, the famous children’s character known for his dufel coat. Inspired by our feature on page 48 about this versatile coat, it shows Paddington on a prestigious shopping street in the city – surrounded by equally well-dressed Londoners. Nick’s other clients include the BBC, the Guardian and Warner Bros. Explore our archive of SHOP magazine cover illustrations at globalblue.com/covers.

SIGNATURE STYLE The Delfna Delettrez fagship on Mayfair’s Mount Street, which opened in early 2015, is the jewellery designer’s frst standalone in London and stocks her full collection.

TOP COAT This season’s dufel is seen in versions that range from decidedly retro to thoroughly modern – all variations work equally well for this versatile classic, writes Karen Munnis

T

he winter dufel coat, a versatile, unisex fashion favourite, is as much a classic as the springtime trench. For autumn/ winter 2015/16, many designers have looked to the past for inspiration for this function-meetsfashion outerwear. The coat’s name is believed to come from the Belgian town of Dufel and the thick woollen material of the same name made there, but the dufel’s design, with its signature large hood and toggle fastenings, is distinctively British. Early versions were made in the late 19th century by the John Partridge workwear company from Rugeley in Stafordshire. The dufel was frst widely worn in the early 1900s by the British navy, who favoured a camel version of the coat to protect them from harsh conditions at sea – with the added advantage that its loose-ftting shape and spacious hood ftted over a naval uniform and hat. The dufel was later nicknamed the Monty coat, as it was worn by Field Marshal Montgomery so that his men could easily identify him. Sales of military surplus clothing to the public popularised the dufel coat, which became a widespread wardrobe staple in the 1950s and 60s. Fans included Jean Cocteau, who wore a white version. The toggle buttons and large hood were also added to children’s coats, and Paddington Bear wears a blue version. The dufel became a favourite of the music industry, worn by Glaswegian band Belle and Sebastian, and all members of Oasis are sporting a black version on the cover of the band’s 1995 single Roll With It. British brand Gloverall bought a consignment of the military-issue dufel coats, and in 1954, started producing its own version of the coat, which it continues to design today. What accounts for the dufel’s continued popularity? ‘It comes down to form and function. The dufel coat has earned its place as an iconic British garment and a timeless wardrobe essential because it looks efortlessly stylish from one season to the next, while doing an impeccable job of keeping you warm and dry when the weather turns,’ says Mark Smith, sales and marketing director for the brand.

This season’s varied takes on the duffel coat, from classic retro references to quilted versions to bold hightech prints, prove its versatility

Like the trench coat, with its similarly solid heritage, the dufel coat’s long-lasting appeal lies in its wearability and warmth during the cold winter months. The Gloverall team continues to reference its classic elements when designing the rest of the brand’s collection. ‘Details like the wooden or horn toggle fastenings and rope or leather loops are synonymous with the dufel coat and are used throughout our Classic Collection. Elsewhere, the dufel remains a key inspiration when it comes to defning the protective elements of each jacket which we produce, so even the more lightweight styles have a technical build quality developed to stand up to the elements while looking super-contemporary,’ says Smith. For its autumn/winter 2015/16 collection, called 1951, Gloverall took inspiration from historic sporting stories, such as black-andwhite photographs of 1950s British Formula One racing driver Tony Brooks wearing the Above: Gloverall 1951 collection autumn/winter 2015/16

classic Monty coat. This season, the boiled wool style is more streamlined and includes appliqué racing-inspired motifs and pins. Gloverall isn’t the only brand that has turned to the past for dufel coat design inspiration. British label Ben Sherman redesigned the coat for autumn/winter 2015/16. ‘It came about because we were looking into garments that have had an afliation with British youth culture,’ says Mark Williams, head of design at Ben Sherman. ‘When worn over a blazer it becomes the new wool parka for the season, and moves on the classic mod silhouette.’ The dufel coat goes modern for autumn/ winter 2015/16, too. For his Raft collection, menswear designer Christopher Raeburn worked with a high-quality Italian nylon and added a moody rust print to create an updated, quilted dufel coat. The dufel has been adopted by womenswear designers, too. For her autumn/ winter 2015/16 collection, which she has described as ‘heritage opulence versus techy utopia’, Mary Katrantzou sent models down the catwalk wearing dufel coats emblazoned with her bold signature prints, worn with high heels and opaque coloured tights. The dufel adopts these thoroughly modern facelifts as efortlessly as it does the retro references seen elsewhere; there can surely be few coat styles as adaptable gloverall.com, bensherman.com, christopherraeburn.co.uk, marykatrantzou.com

A VERY BRITISH WIT

Lulu Guinness, known for her iconic Lips clutch bag, is celebrating 25 years in the fashion industry. Frances Wasem meets the mischievous, humorous, quintessentially British designer

his year, Lulu Guinness celebrated a landmark 25 years in British fashion. It’s an achievement in an industry where young designers often struggle to survive. It’s an even bigger achievement when you discover that her eponymous luxury line started as nothing more than a spark of an idea and the ambition to ‘do something diferent and make a million.’ It was the end of the 1980s, when big shoulder pads ruled, women were fnally forcing open the door into the boardroom and Melanie Grifth in Working Girl was to become a role model for a generation of women. Lulu Guinness’s ‘something diferent’ was a briefcase for that very woman. ‘It was an idea, not a brand,’ explains the petite, scarlet-lipped designer (she is wearing Mac’s Ruby Woo lipstick, of course). ‘No one was designing work accessories for women. The Filofax was the equivalent of a mobile and computer all rolled into one. I was obsessed with my Filofax and the briefcase was an extension of that idea.’ Guinness was also newly married and was looking for a way to move from flm editing into a role that allowed her to work from home. ‘As well as to make a million, which is what you said in those days. Now’s it’s a billion,’ she laughs, exuding an energy and warmth that’s infectious. Her coup was to anticipate a trend before it began. Her briefcase was the frst of its kind – a bag for businesswomen that was functional but beautiful. ‘I used the most expensive leather. It had sections for umbrellas and keys. The lining was red or purple suede,’ Guinness recalls. The bag turned out to be ‘the biggest fashion statement anyone had ever made!’ This brainwave led to a grant from the British Fashion Council. Guinness vividly remembers her frst London Fashion Week show in 1991. ‘I was eight months pregnant and Anya Hindmarch walked over to welcome me.’ Guinness is known for her sense of mischief and weaves myriad design references (Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvador Dalí are ongoing infuences) from many artistic disciplines, including illustration, architecture and furniture design, into her collections.

‘I am a designer with an opinion, not someone who does trends,’ she emphasises. ‘I will never put a fringe on a bag, just because it’s in fashion.’ The DNA of the brand refects the designer’s personality – she is sophisticated, witty and efortlessly feminine. ‘Quality is also important to me,’ she continues. ‘I use luxury leathers and fnishes. I want people to think my bag cost £600, when it actually cost £300. When you buy one of my bags you’re buying the leather, the workmanship – and not an advertising campaign for 27 stores globally.’ That said, Guinness’s bags do sell worldwide, particularly in Asia and Italy, as well as the UK. The company’s global turnover is now a healthy £10 million. Guinness established her business in the basement of the house she still lives and designs in. ‘In the beginning I did it all, flled out forms, boxed up product,’ she recalls. The designer got her big break when London’s Victoria and Albert Museum featured one of her rose basket designs on the posters for its 50 Years of Fashion exhibition. ‘My rose basket was Above (from top): Perspex Lips clutches; Tape Face Grace pouch; A Litle Lipstick Never Hurts clutch, all autumn/winter 2015/16

the size of buildings. It was a game changer because it caught the public’s imagination,’ says Guinness. Within weeks ‘there were chaufeurdriven Rolls-Royces queuing outside my house. Models and celebrities, like Jerry Hall, came to west London to fnd me.’ Fast-forward 25 years and the celebrity faces may have changed but the design ideology hasn’t. Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Paloma Faith and Helena Bonham Carter are all fans of Guinness’ clutches (particularly those Lips designs). The designer married into a name that resonated in class-conscious 1980s Britain: did it open any doors? ‘When I frst started out I used “Lulu” as the logo,’ the designer reveals. ‘In interviews I asked them to take Guinness of. I wanted to know if I could design, in my own right.’ Clearly, she can. Guinness is now a proud member of the British fashion establishment. ‘There’s a sensitivity and a vulnerability to British designers; now that our commercial side is catching up with our creative side, no one can touch us.’ Guinness’s autumn/winter 2015/16 collection brims with British wit and energy. ‘A little lipstick never hurts’ is embossed across a

black sequined clutch while faces, in diferent variations, have been an inspiration for several seasons. ‘The “tape” face really interests me,’ says Guinness. ‘They were inspired by the work of Donald Drawbertson, the creative director of Bobbi Brown.’ How, after all these years, does she remain so relevant? ‘It’s about being observant; I’m fascinated by sociological trends. You also need a lot of resilience and touch of madness. On a bad day I think, “What am I doing? I’m too old for this” and on a good day, “Oh my god, there are 40 people working in an ofce because I have ideas in my head.” I feel so privileged.’ luluguinness.com

London’s most exciting designers are adopting artisanal techniques, to stunning efect. Harriet Quick profles the labels seeking out the handmade, the authentic and the crafted

While the wheels of the fashion industry continue to turn, dropping relentless trends, another set of smaller, more intricate cogs has been put in motion in the luxury sector. London designers are collaborating with specialised craftsmen and utilising artisanal techniques to create designs that speak of authenticity, integrity and the prowess of the handmade. The efects are highly sophisticated rather than craftsy, and visible in a whole variety of mediums from delicate hand-sewn lace to storytelling patchwork to hand-tufted tulle, fock and devoré velvets. The fascination is giving the autumn/winter 2015/16 collections a deeply tactile, cultured aesthetic. For Christopher Kane, one of London’s leading image and tastemakers, inspiration was sparked during a life-drawing class he had arranged for his team in his east London studio. ‘These beautiful drawings just came about and I decided to collage the silhouettes in lace so you might see a hand or a body part – everyone embracing and touching, or about to,’ explains Kane, who worked with highly skilled technicians in a lace atelier in Switzerland to

achieve the efects he was seeking. Avant-garde musician and style pin-up FKA Twigs was one of the frst to sport one of the sensual designs, causing a stir at the Met Gala and a furry of pre-orders. Intricate handwork also proved compelling for Christopher Bailey at Burberry who dubbed his collection Patchwork, Pattern and Prints and appealed to our current love of 1970s style. Each individual piece boasted a variety of techniques, from appliquĂŠ and topstitching to Indian mirror embroidery, hand-blocked prints and crochet trims. The subtle juxtaposition of surface detail, print and rich vegetable dyes proved mesmerising. While the tiered bib dresses and foral suede trench coats had their roots in 70s hippy communes, the vision for 2015 signalled a taste for artisan-led luxury and, perhaps, a fnal goodbye to shiny, logoladen luxe. The groundswell of interest in the decorative crafts seems to suit the British mentality. After all, this is the birthplace of William Morris, the pioneer of the Arts and Crafts Movement in late Victorian England. Morris was known for his unwavering belief in the superiority of craftsmanship over industrial, machine-made products. The William Morris Gallery demonstrates this dedication. Alexander McQueen is a long-time

supporter of Britain’s craftsmen. The brand’s team, led by creative director Sarah Burton, tracks down and collaborates with all manner of specialists from feather embroiderers to saddlery experts, bronze casters and even the specialists responsible for creating the hair plumage for the Queen’s Horse Guards. For the brand’s latest collection, Burton created extraordinary 3D fower efects from hand-tufted and sculpted tulle for elaborate evening dresses that were partly inspired by photographer David Sims’s images of decaying

roses. Leather and tulle was worked into intricate intarsias to create cage-like corsets, while lace was distressed to create ravishing evening gowns. Nature is never ‘perfect’ and this was Burton’s paean to the beauty of imperfection. Exploration of the happy accidents of handiwork is also central to designer Michael van der Ham’s style. The designer has made Above (clockwise from top lef): Burberry crafsmanship; Michael van der Ham artisanal fashion; Alexander McQueen, both autumn/ winter 2015/16

bricolage or patchwork his motif since his MA graduation year at Central Saint Martins art school in 2009. ‘I like so many diferent fabrics and embroideries that I want to include everything,’ he says of a process that sees him pinning and playing with the colours and textures of luscious artisanal fabrics to create his artistic dresses. The designer has started a demi-couture service at his Hackney studio. Actress Helena Bonham Carter was one of the frst to swing by for a ftting. Erdem is another brand known for combining the raw and the refned. Designer Erdem Moralioğlu staged his autumn/winter 2015/16 show in a series of atmospheric 1960s-styled room sets flled with characterful objects. Models walked through the rooms like characters in a play, wearing a series of bodice-topped party dresses created from a clever mix of rich jacquard fabrics with frayed edges. There is a charming aristocratic yet make-do-and-mend storytelling about these

designs that speaks of pragmatism as well as passion. Interior decorative crafts also proved compelling for the team at Mulberry, who looked to Georgian stucco, stonemasonry and tile patterns as a visual source for a tactile, rich collection that includes tweed coats with relief efects that resemble stucco and silk jacquard skater skirts. It’s always good to have a location in mind for the unveiling of any new collection. We think Kane’s Lover’s Lace would look a picture against the sarcophagi in the Victoria and Albert Museum, while Burberry’s patchwork splendours would be ideal for touring the newly reopened Sir John Soane’s Museum – a treasure trove of antiquities and decorative arts. Culturally rich fashion delivers many rewards christopherkane.com, burberry.com, alexandermcqueen.com, michaelvanderham.com, erdem.com, mulberry.com

TABLE TALK London’s seafood restaurants hold their own among the best in the world. Isabella Redmond Styles picks out some top eateries where fsh is the dish of the day

London is not lacking in world-class seafood restaurants and many are among the city’s longest-established and most revered gastronomic establishments. The city is home to Billingsgate Market, the UK’s largest inland fsh market, which covers 13 acres and sells an average of 25,000 tonnes of fsh each year, so the city’s top restaurants can easily source fantastic fsh. Environmentally conscious diners will be glad to know that most make a point of serving fsh that is responsibly caught from sustainable sources. Traditionally, great quality seafood was the preserve of London’s most exclusive restaurants. However, in recent years, new eateries have found creative and appealing ways to make seafood accessible to all, whether you prefer to enjoy a dozen oysters and lobster thermidor in a restaurant frequented by flm stars or simply fancy a casual but delicious fsh supper. Even the most discerning diners are guaranteed to fall for London’s seafood restaurants hook, line and sinker. globalblue.com

Every dish shows of the fantastic quality of the ingredients.

BREMONT Bremont and Jaguar have launched two new watch collaborations to cement their longstanding afliation. The watchmaker has produced six timepieces to complement six of Jaguar’s lightweight E-Type sports cars. Both the MKI and MKII are a celebration of the iconic Jaguar E-Type sports car which launched in 1961, and the watch faces are inspired by the car’s speedometer and tachometer. The MK1 is slick and lightweight with a polished stainless steel case and the design of the rotor is a tribute to the E-Type’s steering wheel. The MKII also celebrates Jaguar’s heritage, bearing its heritage logo and also hour markings that refect the style of the numerals found on E-Type instruments. Both watches come with a 1960s-style racing strap in addition to a leather spare. Bremont, 29 South Audley Street, London W1K 2PE, +44 (0)20 7493 5150, bremont.com * for map go to page 80

JOSEPH Joseph is one of London’s best-known fashion names. Joseph Ettedgui sourced international womenswear labels that were hard to fnd when he launched his eponymous boutique in Chelsea towards the end of the 1960s. He championed then up-and-coming designers such as Azzedine Alaïa and Yohji Yamamoto, and his boutique was the frst store in London to sell Prada. His own label also met with great success. Now under the creative direction of Louise Trotter, the range ofers luxury essentials with a strong contemporary spin. This season’s collection combines textured, untreated fabrics with luxe materials such as ultra-fne cashmere and georgette silk.

TEMPERLEY LONDON Glamorous yet bohemian with a distinctly British feel, there’s a lot to like about Temperley London. This season’s collection draws its inspiration from a variety of sources, including nomadic tribes and 1920s Paul Poiret designs. Expect a deliciously warm colour palette and layered silhouettes which lend Temperley’s signature stitchwork and bold foral prints a pleasingly efortless appeal. Accessories such as scarves and androgynous evening slippers complete this nonchalantly alluring look.

MY NEIGHBOURHOOD: ROLAND MOURET French born London based designer Roland Mouret is known for his ability to create beautiful, sensual garments that fit and flatter women, including the famous Galaxy and Moon dresses. His pieces have been known to sell out within hours of going on sale. His first standalone store, which opened in 2011, is located on Carlos Place in London’s exclusive Mayfair district. He shares his neighbourhood favourites with Ximena Daneri rolandmouret.com

‘I love London, particularly Mayfair. You feel as though you are on the set of a movie, with the grandeur of the Connaught Hotel * p.80, fancy cars, and of course my store at 8 Carlos Place * p.80 in the heart of it all. ‘I love Solange Azagury-Partridge * p.80 and Jessica McCormack * p.80 for their impeccable taste. Their stores are near mine and it’s refreshing having neighbours with such a strong sense of identity. With the new Céline * p.80 store on Mount Street, and soon the addition of Dior and Saint Laurent, it’s a very exciting time for the area.

‘My local secrets? Mount Street Deli

Mount Street Gardens is a hidden gem tucked away just behind the street itself. Also, try Robert Clergerie * p.80 on Wigmore Street for men’s shoes. I am most likely to be found at Little House. It is the best place for business meetings and, of course, a drink with friends. I do breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner at The Beaumont * p.80. I’m a creature of habit and I never feel bored there. ‘When friends visit, I always think a

I go from the London Eye to Borough market. Great views can be found crossing any bridge along the Thames. Each one gives you a unique perspective of London. ‘My tips for exploring London? Don’t be frightened to cross Regent Street – there is a nice lifestyle in Soho. And always use London’s black cabs. They ofer the best cab service in the world.’

TRANSLATIONS РУССКИЙ ПЕРЕВОД 48: Top Coat

Одежда высшего уровня Карен Мюннис рассказывает о классической модели пальто – дафлкот, которая в этом сезоне представлена в самых разных версиях, от решительного ретро до подчеркнутой актуальности Зимний дафлкот остается такой же классикой моды, как и весенний тренч. В этом сезоне многие дизайнеры вдохновлялись прошлыми десятилетиями, чтобы включить в свои коллекции это пальто в стиле унисекс, в котором функция органично сочетается с модой. Принято считать, что оно получило свое название в честь бельгийского города Дюффеля, где раньше производилась плотная шерстяная ткань. Однако сам дизайн модели, с его знаменитым большим капюшоном и продолговатыми пуговицами, – истинно английский. В конце 19 века производством таких курток занималась компания Джона Партриджа, которая специализировалась на рабочей одежде и работала в городке Рагли в Стаффордшире. В начале 20 века такие пальто из верблюжьей шерсти использовали служащие британского военно-морского флота, спасаясь от суровых условий в море. Свободный крой и объемные капюшоны отлично подходили для того, чтобы надевать пальто поверх униформы и фуражки. Модель даже получила неформальное название Монти – в честь фельдмаршала Монтгомери, которого команда узнавала издалека по характерной верхней одежде. Продажи излишков военной формы гражданскому населению сделали дафлкот популярным: в 1950-60-е он плотно вошел в повседневные гардеробы. Его ценителем globalblue.com

был, в частности, Жан Кокто – он носил белое пальто. Продолговатые деревянные пуговицы и большие капюшоны стали появляться и в детской одежде: например, Медвежонок Паддингтон носит синий дафлкот. Эту моду не могли пропустить в музыкальной индустрии, и группа Belle and Sebastian из Глазго отлично это иллюстрирует. А на обложке сингла Oasis 1995 года Roll With It все музыканты позируют именно в таких черных пальто. Британская компания Gloverall приобрела военную партию дафлкотов, а в 1954 году открыла собственное производство, которым продолжает заниматься по сей день. Что же обеспечивает непреходящую популярность этой модели? «Все дело в форме и функциональности. Это полупальто завоевало статус культовой британской одежды и неотъемлемой части гардероба. И это неудивительно: в любой сезон оно смотрится непринужденно стильно, а также безупречно справляется с задачей сохранять сухость и тепло, когда погода портится», – утверждает Марк Смит, директор по маркетингу и продажам. Как и в случае с тренчем, сама модель не утрачивает привлекательности с течением времени благодаря двум качествам – удобству и способности согревать. Работая над другими предметами гардероба, дизайнеры Gloverall продолжают использовать классические элементы дафлкота. «Деревянные или костяные продолговатые пуговицы и петли из веревки или кожи узнаваемы и используются во всей нашей Classic Collection. Это пальто остается неизменным эталоном любой нашей куртки – настолько совершенна ее функциональность зимой. Поэтому, даже более тонкие модели обладают схожими техническими свойствами, поэтому способны защищать от стихии, не теряя стильного облика», – утверждает Смит. Источником вдохновения для

Gloverall к сезону осень/зима 2015/16 стали исторические спортивные состязания. Так, компания обратилась к архивным черно-белым фотографиям Тони Брукса, гонщика британской Формулы-1 1950-х, где он позирует в классическом пальто Монти. В результате объемные шерстяные модели получили несколько более облегающие формы и отделку аппликациями на тему гонок. Это далеко не единственный бренд, который ищет в прошлом вдохновение для новых вариаций на тему дафлкота. Британская марка Ben Sherman в коллекции осень/зима 2015/16 также занялась переосмыслением этой классической модели. «Мы изучали одежду, которая была бы связана с британской молодежной культурой, – делится Марк Уилльмс, возглавляющий отдел дизайна в Ben Sherman. – Если надеть это пальто поверх блейзера, получится новая шерстяная парка, которая продвигает классический стиляжий силуэт». Приобретает дафлкот и современный облик в этом сезоне. Так, в своей коллекции Raf дизайнер мужской одежды Кристофер Рэберн представил обновленную версию – стеганый дафлкот из высококачественного итальянского нейлона с мрачноватым ржавым принтом. Дизайнеры женской одежды также активно адаптируют классический силуэт. Свою коллекцию осень/зима 2015/16 Мэри Катранзу охарактеризовала так: «историческая роскошь в противоположность техногенной утопии». Во время ее презентации модели выходили на подиум в туфлях на высоких каблуках, плотных цветных колготках и дафлкотах, украшенных ее фирменными яркими принтами. Дафлкот выдерживает современные преобразования столь же непринужденно, как и более востребованные отсылки к ретро. Немногие пальто способны так легко приспосабливаться к запросам времени. gloverall.com, bensherman.com, christopherraeburn.co.uk, marykatrantzou.com globalblue.com

54: A Very British Wit

Британское Остроумие Дизайнерский бренд Lulu Guinness, известный своим культовым клатчем Lips, отмечает 25 лет со дня основания. Фрэнсис Васим берет интервью у озорного и типично британского дизайнера марки В этом году Lulu Guinness отметил свой 25-летний стаж в индустрии британской моды. Это серьезное достижение для индустрии, в которой многие молодые дизайнеры с трудом выдерживают конкуренцию. Еще большую значимость придает этому событию тот факт, что в основе серии аксессуаров дизайнера лежала мимолетная идея и желание «сделать что-то выдающееся и заработать миллион». В конце 1980-х, когда в моду входили большие подплечники, а на улицах появлялось все больше предпринимательниц, образ Мелани Гриффит в фильме «Деловая женщина» стал идеалом для целого поколения представительниц прекрасного пола. Портфель Lulu Guinness был предназначен как раз для такой женщины. «Это была просто идея, а не бренд», поясняет изящный дизайнер с алой помадой на губах (помада, конечно же, Mac Ruby Woo). «Никто не занимался созданием женских аксессуаров. Персональный органайзер Filofax в то время заменял мобильный телефон и ноутбук. Я просто обожала свой Filofax, и портфель был его идеальным дополнением». Вскоре Лулу Гиннесс вышла замуж, и ей хотелось скорее покончить с киноиндустрией и перейти на работу из дома. «И конечно заработать миллион, как принято было говорить в те дни. Сейчас, конечно, уже хочется миллиард», – шутит она. Одним из ее даров было умение предвидеть тенденции. Ее портфель был одним из первых в своем роде аксессуаров для деловых женщин. «Я использовала самую дорогую кожу. Там было отделение для зонтика, а также для ключей. Подкладка была из красной или фиолетовой замши», – вспоминает Гиннесс. Эта сумка стала «лучшим стейтмент-аксессуаром всех времен».


97

Так, блестящая идея помогла дизайнеру получить грант от Британского совета моды. Гиннесс хорошо помнит свой первый шоу-показ в рамках Лондонской Недели моды в 1991 году. «Я была на восьмом месяце беременности и Аня Хиндмарч подошла меня поприветствовать». Дизайнер славится своим озорным поведением, нашедшим проявление в ее творчестве. В ее работах проглядывается влияние Эльзы Скиапарелли и Сальвадора Дали, а коллекции изобилуют элементами из различных жанров искусства, включая иллюстрацию, архитектуру и дизайн мебели. «Я хоть и дизайнер, но у меня есть свое мнение, не зависящее от трендов, – подчеркивает она. – Я бы никогда не поместила на сумку бахрому, только потому, что так сейчас модно». Философия бренда отражает личность самого дизайнера – она утонченна, остроумна и необычайно женственна. «Качество не менее важно для меня, – продолжает она. – Я использую лишь роскошную кожу и отделку. Мне хочется, что бы моя сумка выглядела на £600, при стоимости в £300. Когда люди покупают наши сумки, то платят за кожу и работу, а не за рекламную кампанию наших 27 магазинов». Коллекции Lulu Guinness можно встретить по всему миру, особенно в Азии, Италии и Великобритании. Ежегодный оборот компании насчитывает 10 миллионов фунтов. Свой бизнес она основала в подвале дома, в котором она до сих пор живет и работает. «В самом начале я занималась всем сама, начиная с заполнения документации и заканчивая упаковкой изделий», – вспоминает она. Серьезный прогресс наступил после того, как лондонский Музей Виктории и Альберта поместил изображение одной из ее корзин с розами на плакат, посвященный выставке «50 лет моды». «Моя корзина с розами появилась на рекламе размером с дом. Это событие сыграло решающую роль в моей карьере, поскольку привлекло внимание публики, – говорит Гиннесс. – Не прошло и недели, как у моего дома стали парковаться Роллс-Ройсы с личными шаферами. Модели

и разного рода знаменитости, включая Джерри Холла, приезжали в западную часть Лондона, чтобы встретиться со мной». Спустя 25 лет лица многих знаменитостей могли измениться, однако философия дизайна осталась прежней. Кейт Мосс, Алекса Чанг, Палома Фейт, Хелена Бонэм Картер – все они являются поклонниками сумок Гиннесс (особенно тех, что имеют форму губ). После замужества дизайнер взяла фамилию, которая знакома каждому англичанину, но помогла ли она ей завоевать популярность? «В самом начале я решила использовать в качестве логотипа имя “Lulu”, – говорит дизайнер. – Фамилию “Guinness” я специально попросила убрать, чтобы посмотреть, смогу ли я добиться успеха без ассоциаций с другими брендами». Очевидно, у нее все получилось, и сейчас Гиннесс является почетным членом британского модного сообщества. «Британские дизайнеры очень чувствительны и уязвимы, однако теперь, когда коммерческая сторона дела не отстает от креативной, нас никто не может ни в чем обвинять». Коллекция Lulu Guinness осеньзима 2015/16 преисполнена английского остроумия и энергичности. Фраза «A little lipstick never hurts» вышита на украшенных пайетками черных клатчах, а на остальных моделях сумок уже который сезон подряд красуются самые разные лица. «Мне особо нравится наш дизайн “tape face”, – говорит Лулу. – Он был создан под вдохновением от работ Дональда Дроубертсона – креативного директора Bobbi Brown». Удивительно, как спустя столько лет дизайнер не теряет своей актуальности. «Все дело в наблюдательности; мне очень нравятся социологические тренды. Также необходимо иметь недюжинное терпение и быть немного безумным. В тяжелые дни я порой думаю: “Что же я делаю? Я слишком стара для этого” – а в хорошие дни наоборот: “Боже мой, в нашем офисе трудятся 40 человек и все из-за моих идей” – это приводит меня в восторг». luluguinness.com

60: Show Of Hands

Ловкость рук Самые интересные дизайнеры Лондона активно осваивают ремесленные приемы и демонстрируют потрясающие результаты. Харриет Куик рассказывает о том, как уважаемые бренды обратились к хэндмейду и крафту Пока модная индустрия предлагает нам один тренд за другим, все более заметным становится еще одно небольшое, но весьма изысканное явление в сфере роскоши. Все чаще лондонские дизайнеры обращаются к ремесленникам и применяют ремесленные техники, чтобы задействовать аутентичность, естественность и красоту профессионального хэндмейда. В модном контексте ручное творчество оказывается изысканным, а его влияние проявляется в самых разных формах: изящное кружево, авторский пэчворк, тюль, флок и выжженный бархат. Все это придает коллекциям осень/зима 2015/16 особую тактильность и неповторимую эстетику. Кристофер Кейн, один из ведущих трендсеттеров Лондона, поймал искру вдохновения во время урока рисования с натуры, который он организовал для своей команды в студии на востоке Лондона. Автор объясняет это так: «Как только эти красивые рисунки проявились, я решил собрать силуэты в узор таким образом, чтобы можно было увидеть руку или часть торса, и чтобы фигуры на изображениях обнимали друг друга, трогали или стремились это сделать». Чтобы эффект был идеальным, Кейн обратился в швейцарское ателье кружева, где работают высококлассные специалисты. Авангардная певица и стильная звезда FKA Twigs одной из первых примерила чувственный наряд Кейна, чем вызвала массу разговоров на Met Gala и спровоцировала поток предзаказов. Изысканность ручной работы не осталась незамеченной и Кристофером Бейли, который назвал свою коллекцию для Burberry “Patchwork, Pattern and Prints” («Печворк, узоры и принты»). В globalblue.com

ней прослеживается отсылка ко всеми любимому в этом сезоне стилю 1970-х. Каждый предмет гардероба демонстрирует разнообразные техники: аппликация, художественные швы, индийская зеркальная вышивка, ручная печать и вязаная отделка. Неуловимое соединение деталей, принтов и богатых оттенков оказалось завораживающим. Сарафаны с тесьмой и замшевые тренчи с цветочным принтом, конечно, уходят своими корнями в хиппи-коммуны 70-х. Тем не менее, 2015 год обозначил вкус к особой, созданной мастерами роскоши, а также, по всей видимости, попрощался с сияющей и нагруженной логотипами пышностью. Нарастающий интерес к декоративным ремеслам, кажется, близок британской ментальности. Ведь именно в Англии родился Уилльям Моррис – зачинатель движения Arts and Crafs Movement, которое пришлось на поздний викторианский период. Моррис прославился своей решительной уверенностью в превосходстве ремесленничества над индустриальностью. Выставки William Morris Gallery демонстрируют плоды его деятельной увлеченности этой идеей. Модный дом Alexander McQueen многие годы поддерживает британские ремесла. Креативный директор Сара Бертон и ее команда находится в постоянном поиске с самыми разными специалистами: их интересует и перьевая вышивка, и шорные изделия, и бронзовое литье, и даже плюмаж для Королевской конной гвардии. Для новой коллекции марки Бертон придумала необычные цветочные формы в объеме из тюля, выработанного вручную и собранного в скульптурные силуэты. Эти изысканные вечерние платья были созданы под вдохновением от фотографий увядающих роз, снятых Дэвидом Симсом. Кожа и тюль образовали изысканную мозаику в корсетах, напоминающих клетки, а искусственно состаренное кружево восхитительно смотрелось в вечерних платьях. В природе не бывает «совершенства», и эта коллекция – хвалебная песнь Бертон красоте неидеальности.


99

Дизайнер Микаэль ван дер Хам также сосредоточен на поиске удачных сочетаний в ремесленных техниках. Получив магистерскую степень в Central Saint Martins в 2009 году, он сделал бриколаж и пэчворк основой своего творчества. «Мне нравится так много разных тканей и вышивок, что я хочу использовать их все разом», – делится он своими ощущениями. Дизайнер соединяет разные цвета и текстуры роскошных тканей ручной работы, играет ими, создавая свои художественные платья. Микаэль ван дер Хам открыл сервис полукутюр в своей студии в лондонском Хакни, и одной из первых его клиенток стала актриса Хелена Бонем Картер. Erdem также входит в число передовых брендов, интересующихся ремеслами в сфере моды. Для показа коллекции осень/ зима 2015/16 дизайнер Эрдем Моралиоглу воссоздал комнаты в стиле 1960-х, наполнив их характерными для того времени предметами. Подобно персонажам пьесы, модели проходили сквозь эти пространства в платьях с корсажами из богатых жаккардовых тканей с необработанными краями. Это сочетание роскоши с небрежностью не только очаровательно аристократично. Оно повествует о ручном творчестве, объединяющем прагматизм и страсть. Бренд Mulberry увлекся изучением интерьерного декора периода королей Георгов, обратив внимание на лепнину, каменную кладку и плиточные панели. Они стали источником вдохновения для тактильно насыщенной коллекции, в которую вошли твидовые пальто с рельефным эффектом, напоминающие лепнину, и короткие юбки из шелкового жаккарда. Всегда интересно попытаться представить новую коллекцию в какомнибудь интересном месте. Мы думаем, что Lover’s Lace Кристофера Кейна живописно смотрелось бы на фоне саркофагов в Музее Виктории и Альберта, а великолепное лоскутное шитье Burberry прекрасно подходит духу нового Музея сэра Джона Соуна – сокровищнице антиквариата и декоративного искусства.

48: Top Coat 顶级大衣 本季的Dufel粗呢大衣造型百变,无论鲜明的复古 风格还是十足的摩登气质,都将这一经典款式完美 诠释,Karen Munnis如是说 和春天的风衣一样,风格多变、男女皆宜的冬 款粗呢Dufel大衣也是广受青睐的经典款式之 一。2015/16年秋冬季,众多设计师放眼往昔汲取 灵感,打造出多款集实用功能与时尚气质于一身的 Dufel大衣。 传说这款大衣得名于比利时小镇迪弗尔 (Dufel)和当地盛产的厚羊毛面料;但其标 志性的阔兜帽与牛角扣设计,却是地道的英伦 特色。 19世纪末, Dufel大衣发轫于斯塔福 德郡(Stafordshire)。早期款式由鲁吉利镇 (Rugeley)的John Partridge工装公司出品,到20 世纪初首获英国海军部队的广泛青睐。宽松的剪裁 和敞阔的兜帽与制服、军帽完美适配,而骆驼皮革 制成的Dufel大衣更能帮士兵们抵挡海上的烈日刚 风。后来,为了让麾下将士一眼认出自己,连陆军元 帅蒙哥马利(Field Marshal Montgomery)也穿上 了Dufel大衣,而这种大衣也因而被昵称为“蒙帝大 衣(Monty)”。 富余的军供大衣一经外销即广获热捧。二十世 纪五、六十年代,Dufel大衣成为了风靡各地的衣 橱明星,最爱白色Dufel的诗人让·谷克多( Jean Cocteau)亦是拥趸之一。童装大衣上也加入了牛角 扣与阔兜帽设计,连帕丁顿熊也穿上了一件蓝色的 Dufel大衣。格拉斯哥乐队Belle & Sebastian等音 乐界人士同样钟爱Dufel,1995年,Oasis 乐队甚至 在单曲《Roll With It》的光碟封面上全员穿着黑色 Dufel亮相。 战后,英国品牌 Gloverall 购买了一大批军用 Dufel大衣,并于1954年开始自产新版Dufel大 衣,其设计之路延续至今。Dufel大衣风靡不息的 秘密是什么?该品牌营销总监Mark Smith答曰:“ 造型与功能。Dufel大衣已成为了英伦服饰之标杆 和衣橱必备之经典,任四季流转变换,轻松凸显时 尚风格;而且在天气频变之际,既能保持温暖,又能 免于潮湿。” 和同样历史久远的风衣一样,因其经久耐穿、 保暖性佳的特点,Dufel大衣多年以来一直备受 欢迎。Gloverall的团队在设计品牌系列的其他产 品时,依然沿用了Dufel大衣的经典元素。“木质 拴扣、牛角扣、皮绳、皮环等细节是Dufel大衣 的代名词,这些元素在我们的经典系列(Classic globalblue.com

Collection)当中随处可见。除此之外,在我们为每 一款夹克设计保护性元素的时候,Dufel大衣也是 一大重要灵感源泉。所以,即使是较为轻型款式也 要在工艺上保证质量,好让它能在抵抗恶劣环境的 同时,同时彰显超现代风范,”Smith如是说。 2015/16年秋冬季,Gloverall从经典体育故事 中寻求灵感,例如20世纪50年代英国一级方程式赛 车手Tony Brooks身着经典“蒙帝大衣”的黑白照 片。熟羊毛风格在当季款式中稍添流线感,更加入了 赛跑图案缝饰和扣针元素。 着眼往昔探求Dufel设计灵感的不仅Gloverall 一家,英国品牌Ben Sherman也于2015/16秋冬 季对Dufel进行了重新设计。“之所以有此想法, 是因为我们想打造能与英国青年文化产生关联的 服装,” 设计总监Mark Williams说道。“披在西 装外面,Dufel就成了当季的新款羊毛外罩,给 经典的英伦现代主义(Mod)造型添加了新的魅 力。”2015/16秋冬款 Dufel大衣也被赋予了现代 风格。男装设计师Christopher Reaburn在他的 Raft系列中,选用优质意大利尼龙面料,饰以气质 忧郁的锈色印花,打造出富有创意的夹棉Dufe大 衣。 女装设计中同样不乏Dufel的身影。在设计 师Mary Katrantrou的2015/16年秋冬系列新品 中,她将“华丽的传统元素与现代科技幻想巧妙结 合”。穿着高跟鞋和不透明紧身裤袜的模特迈上T 台,Dufel大衣上前卫大胆的标志性印花分外夺 目。 不论是大刀阔斧的新锐改造还是重温经典复古 元素,Dufel都能游刃有余。风格如此灵动多变,试 问有多少大衣款式能够做到呢? gloverall.com, bensherman.com, christopherraeburn.co.uk, marykatrantzou.com 54: A Very British Wit 典型英式诙谐 设计师Lulu Guinness凭借经典的唇形手袋作品 声名鹊起,如今迎来了她在时尚界的第25个精彩年 头。这位活泼而幽默的设计师洋溢着典型的英伦风 范,与Frances Wasem 相谈甚欢 今年是Lulu Guinness的里程碑年,她已经在英国 时尚界度过了25个春秋。年轻设计师想要跻身业 内已属不易,打造出如此驰名的奢侈品帝国更难如 登天。而这一切,始于喷薄的灵感和创业立世的雄 心——“成非常之事,得百万真金”。 阔肩女装广为流行的20世纪80年代末,女性 终于推开了职场大门。电影《上班女郎》(Working


101

Girl)中的女主角Melanie Grifth就荣升为新一代 女性之楷模。主张“成非常之事”的Lulu Guinness 为这类女性打造了专属的公文包。“这是一种理念, 而非一个品牌。”这位身材娇小的设计师如是说; 一支Mac牌Ruby Woo复古红唇膏衬得她唇红齿 白。“我们需要有人来设计专属于女性的办公用 品。Filofax笔记本可以将手机和电脑的功能合二为 一。我深深着迷于我的Filofax,我自己的公文包设 计也是从这一理念中延伸而来。” 新婚后,原本从事影片剪辑的Guinness寻觅着 一份足不出户便能完成的工作。“还得寻觅你说过 的‘百万真金’哪!不过现在已经是‘十亿’真金了。” 听到Frances Wasem打趣的提醒,她露出了极富感 染力又温暖四溢的笑容。以“得风气之先”为追求, 她设计出了既实用又美观的女士公文包。“我采用了 最昂贵的皮革面料。包内留出了放置雨伞和钥匙的 空区,衬里用的是红色或紫色的绒面革,”Guinness 回忆道。后来,这款女包成为了“有史以来最重要的 时尚宣言”。 这一灵机之作获得了英国时尚协会(British Fashion Council)的赞赏。Guinness清晰地记 得1991年她的伦敦时装周处女秀上的场景。“当时 我怀孕八个月,Anya Hindmarch 走过来向我致 意。”Guinness不仅以活泼的设计风格而著称, 还擅于从插画、建筑和家具设计等众多艺术领域 中借鉴灵感,运用到自己的作品当中(设计师Elsa Schiaparelli和画家Salvador Dalí都对她影响颇 深)。 “作为一名有想法的设计师,我不会随波逐 流,”她强调说。“我不会只因为当前流行穗饰,就在 设计时加入这个元素。”品牌的基因也反映着设计 师的个性——Guinness其人极为讲究、聪颖睿智, 充满了女性魅力。“对我来说品质也非常重要,”她继 续说道。“我想让标价300欧元的手袋在人们眼中如 同价值600欧元,因此选用了奢华的皮革面料和处 理方式。购买我设计的手袋,其实是支付了面料和手 工成本,而非为全球27家商铺的广告费埋单。 Guinness设计的手袋因而畅销世界,尤其风 靡于亚洲、意大利和英国。品牌的全球营业额如今 已达到1000万英镑。Guinness在她居所的地下室 里孕育了自己的企业,而今她依然居住在这座房子 里。“创业初期我一个人干所有的活,填表格、包装产 品,”她回忆道。当伦敦的维多利亚和阿尔伯特博物馆 (Victoria and Albert Museum)将她设计的玫瑰 花篮印在“50年时尚展”( 50 Years of Fashion) 海报上,Guinness终于能享受长假了。“我的玫瑰 花篮有楼房那么大,一下子就引起了公众的兴趣,从 而改变了一切,”Guinness说。随后几周,“由专人驾 驶的劳斯莱斯在我的屋外排成了长龙。Jerry Hall等 名人和模特纷纷前来西伦敦找我。”

25年倏忽而逝。于Guinness而言,变化的是 名流们的容颜,不变的是她的设计理念。她设计 的手拿包拥趸如云(特别是那些唇形款式),Kate Moss、Alexa Chung、Paloma Faith 和Helena Bonham Carter等名流皆在其列。Guinness早年 嫁入豪门,联想到20世纪80年代英国人旗帜鲜明 的阶级意识,不禁让人好奇:这桩婚事有没有带来 任何机遇之门?“我创业之初就用 ‘Lulu’作为商 标,”这位设计师坦言。“接受采访时,我会向对方提 出去掉我的夫姓‘Guinness’。我只想知道能否以自 己的名义做设计。”显然,答案是肯定的,如今的她 已在英国时尚界功成名就。“英国设计师总是敏感而 又脆弱,因为过去我们的商业成就总是落后于创意 水准。所幸这两者已日渐齐平,我们便无需再担忧他 人的质疑。” Guinness的2015/16年秋冬系列中充溢着 英式诙谐与能量。黑色手袋饰以小金属片,再印 上一句“A little lipstick never hurts(些许口红 总无妨)”。各式各样的脸谱图案成为了延续数季 的灵感源泉。“胶带拼贴而成的脸谱着实令我着 迷,”Guinness说。“Bobbi Brown 公司创意总监 Donald Drawbertson的作品让我深受启发。”占 据时尚潮头多年,她是如何做到的?“在设计界,洞 察力不可或缺,而我对社会趋势十分着迷。强大的 适应力和些许疯狂也很必要。情绪低落时,我会自 疑——明明已经老得玩不动时尚了,我还在做什么? 心情不错时,我又会惊叹——工作室里的40人得以 忙碌,只因我的脑中迸发着灵感,我何其荣幸!” luluguinness.com 60: Show Of Hands 巧手天工 伦敦最杰出的设计师们正将手工技艺演绎得出神入 化。Harriet Quick剖析诸多品牌,带您一一鉴赏手 工制品、地道珍品与精雕细刻 时尚之轮前进不息,潮流接踵而至。在奢侈品界,一 组规格更小而更精微复杂的齿轮亦已转动。伦敦的 设计师与专业工匠协力,以精湛的手工技艺打造真 实、诚挚、净粹之作。不论是手缝蕾丝、画面拼缝、 手织薄纱还是植绒和烧花丝绒,都是高雅精巧而非 手工拙朴之品。2015/16年秋冬系列正是因此而充 满了质感和文化意趣。 英国时尚先锋之一Christopher Kane为伦敦东 部工作室的团队安排了一堂写生课,新季的灵感正 是源于此课堂。“美丽画作涌现眼前,我不禁想把它 们的轮廓用蕾丝拼贴出来。画作上的所有人都在相 互拥抱、轻抚,于是我决定把手臂或身体部分表现 到蕾丝的纹理中来,”Kane解释道。为实现心目中的

效果,他在瑞士的一家蕾丝工作室与技艺高超的工 匠联手合作。前卫音乐人、当红潮人FKA Twigs首 先尝试了这一性感的设计,旋即在纽约大都会艺术 博物馆慈善舞会(Met Gala)上引起了轰动,预订 热潮也随之涌来。 Christopher Bailey为Burberry设计的精巧 手工作品同样备受瞩目,他将其称作“拼贴-图案-印 花”系列,迎合了人们对二十世纪七十年代风格的热 爱。每件单品都蕴含着诸多技艺——缝饰、假缝、印 度镜绣、手工印染、钩针编织一应俱全。外在细节、 印花与多姿多彩的植物印染巧妙搭配、相得益彰, 尽显无限魅力。颇具层次感的围嘴裙与花饰绒面革 风衣源自于七十年代的嬉皮文化;2015年,新的设 计指引了奢侈品界的手工风潮。也许,我们终将告别 琳琅闪耀的奢侈标牌。 对装饰性工艺品的浓烈兴趣似乎与英国人的 性格息息相关。毕竟,这里乃是后维多利亚时期英 格兰艺术与手工运动先驱威廉·莫里斯(William Morris)的出生地。相较于机器制作的工业产品, 莫里斯坚信手工制品有其优越之处。这种对手工艺 的执着从威廉·莫里斯美术馆的展品中亦可窥见一 二。 Alexander McQueen长期资助英国工匠。由 品牌创意主管Sarah Burton带领团队四处寻访来 自各行各业的名工巧匠,绣匠、鞍具专家、铜艺师, 乃至皇家骑兵卫队的毛发护理师,形形色色汇聚一 堂。新品系列中,Burton从摄影师David Sims的 作品中汲取灵感,将画面中的渐枯玫瑰精心缝制在 晚礼裙上,手工绢网闪耀3D特效。皮革与薄纱饰以 细木镶嵌,塑造笼状束腰,更有迷乱蕾丝点缀以打 造华美晚礼裙。Burton借天然拙朴为不完美之美献 一曲赞歌。 手工技艺的欢乐碰撞亦是设计师Michael van der Ham作品的灵魂。2009年,他便以拼装为主 题,完成了中央圣马丁艺术学院的硕士毕业设计。 “百变的织物与刺绣让我着迷,真想在作品里将它 们 ‘一网打尽’,”他回想起在某次设计中,各种色彩 与质地的手工织物错落眼前,端详把玩间迸发出衣 裙创意。他位于伦敦Hackney的工作室提供时装半 定制服务,女星Helena Bonham Carter便是首批 顾客之一。 另一品牌Erdem同样擅于将天然拙朴和精致 细节巧妙结合。在2015/16年秋冬大秀上,设计师 Erdem Moralioğlu在颇具20世纪60年代风格的家 居环境中展示自己的新作,四周布满个性物件。 闲庭信步的模特上衣紧束,裙沿丰富的提花织 物辅以精妙磨边,宛如戏中角色;既彰显贵族气息 又不乏质朴亲和元素,实用主义与热情创意相得益 彰。Mulberry团队同样从内饰工艺上获得灵感,设 计师从乔治王时代的灰泥、琢石艺术和瓷砖图案上 globalblue.com

寻获启发,打造出质感极佳、气质奢华的服装系列, 其中包括自由舒展的粗花呢外套,以及饰有真丝提 花的大摆短裙。 我们不妨把每一件时尚新品都与某一个地 点联系起来。观赏维多利亚和阿尔伯特博物馆 (Victoria and Albert Museum)的雕花石棺时, 最宜身着Christopher Kane设计的“爱之蕾丝” (Lover’s Lace)裙装,两者相映成趣,唯美如 画;来到重新开放的约翰·索恩博物馆(Sir John Soane’s Museum),徜徉于珍稀古董和装饰艺术 品间,Burberry的拼装华服便再合适不过了。浸染 文化气韵的时装总会带给穿者别样魅力。 christopherkane.com, burberry.com, alexandermcqueen.com, michaelvanderham.com, erdem.com, mulberry.com
