Daniel w. Fletcher
Undeniably British, Daniel w. Fletcher tapped into his northern heritage for both the inspiration and fabric choice of his autumn/winter 2019 collection. Merino wools in Prince of Wales check, scarves made at in a Yorkshire mill and homegrown materials all form the foundation of a fresh, yet unquestionable, nod to the UK’s established aesthetic.
One of Fashion East’s trio; Nigerian born, London based designer Mowalola Ogunlesi threw an unapologetic sprinkling of sexual liberation on the January runways with her autumn/winter 2019 collection. A celebration of the black African male’s “culture, sexuality and desires,” the autumn lineup presented a slew of miniskirts, crop tops, unbuttoned shirts juxtaposed with a more modest abundance of neon trenches.
Arriving from Los Angeles via the lenses of Hollywood’s young, rich and famous (think Kylie Jenner, Jaden Smith…), C2h4’s autumn/winter 2019 collection was inspired by the writings of futurist, F.M. Esfandiary and his outlook on a post-human era. Utilitarian and free-flowing, the selection is made up of a host of muted, technical fabrics to form retro-futuristic tracksuits, outerwear and oversized casuals.
