Fred Butler Launches A Bespoke Accessory Line

From her London base, Fred Butler has created a distinctive brand designing vibrant props and accessories for a diverse range of media from fashion shoots to music press shots. After completing a degree in fashion, she found her niche when she worked for a set designer and realised she loved this as well as fashion: “I enjoyed set design but I found it difficult to make the transition from fashion so I decided to combine both and incorporate props with the body.” Two years on, Fred is now launching her very own bespoke accessory line consisting of one-off pieces of art for the body, some of which have taken two weeks to hand-make. Following the unique style of her props, the range features her signature rainbow colours, storybook animals and geometric shapes, yet this is the first time she has had the freedom to be fully self-indulgent.
Fred Butler’s collection will be available to buy from Cube PR from April 23.

Alithia Spuri-Zampetti (London, UK)

Already featured in Dazed's October issue, Alithia Spuri-Zampetti has been making an impact with her Central Saint Martins BA collection that used foam constructions that have the look of paper cut-outs integrated with well cut dresses, shirts and trousers. This sort of flexibility has landed her a job with Valentino.

Zaha Hadid Designs Shoes For Melissa

Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid's recent work on the Chanel Mobile Art project seems to have sparked a desire for further fashion collaboration. This time, the Brazilian footwear brand Melissa has given Hadid the opportunity to design a shoe. Melissa, a company which uses sustainable materials, has already collaborated with Vivienne Westwood, Judy Blame and Alexandre Herchcovitch.
"This was a very challenging project, not only in design, but on the technical side. And there was great synergy; I worked very closely with Melissa to transform my design into reality," explains Hadid. The curvature of the limited-edition shoe is familiar from many recent projects by Zaha Hadid Architects, including the new London Aquatic Centre. "The fluidity of our design combined perfectly with the technology of Melissa's plastic, injecting pieces without closures or seals," says Hadid. Available in eight colours, the shoe will be launched at a party on September 18 during London Fashion Week.

Kokon to Zai in the Westside

From the tiny Greek Store location, which has gained a cult shopping status, the Kokon To Zai guys Marjan Pejoski and Sasha Bezovski decided to branch out and find a new home. They settled for an old butcher's store on Golborne Road with a magnificent fascia that dates back to the Victorian era. In contrast to the Greek Street location, the new shop is far more spacious with a real sense of eclecticism - thistle design Victorian tiles, Jason Miller antler chandeliers and Carrara marble bar are all interior composites. In addition to the expected KTZ line and Marjan Pejoski, they have incorporated interior objects such as Harry Allen pig banks, conceptual bicycles from Droog Designs and Seletti homeware, all of which contribute to this modern curiosity shop that the KTZ team have curated.

新發現 Mary Katrantzou

Walking into the BFC London Rocks showroom, full of familiar faces and designs was reassuring, but the majority of the designers who were exhibiting in this British showroom in Paris, had put on a show on/off schedule in London already so there was no need to revisit their designs again. There were notable exceptions though such as Mary Katrantzou who was fortunate enough to go straight to production with her S/S 09 collection following her MA collection at Central Saint Martins, which has already got her a lot of attention. It was instantly recognisable as Katrantzou's work as she continued the use of enlarged and oversized jewellery prints on dresses and also produced oversized weighty jewellery that work as ensembles with the dresses. Why ruin a good thing was the thinking behind the collection. Of course, tweaks had to be made. The fabrics are much lighter and instead of the double bonded jersey from her MA collection which was highly labour intensive, Katrantzou has also used denim in parts of the dresses. The colours are still just as bright but are taken up a notch in the prints to give them more of a pop art vibe. The jewellery is made out of metal instead of wood but are still just as oversized and chunky. It's a seamless continuity that has gotten Katrantzou a lot of attention even if they are not familiar with her MA collection and already buyers are taking notice. Except key stockists from next season and perhaps come next London Fashion Week, Katrantzou will make a bigger shout about her work.

Jeremy Scott takes on adidas Originals

Celebrating Originality is what the Originals by Originals concept is all about and the launch of this line means that designers will be collaborating with adidas Originals to add a whole new dimension to that recognisable logo. Jeremy Scott is one of the three designers to get his hands on the logo and he has mixed up classic sports silhouettes and fabrics with the humourous details that hae made his own fashion brand so distinct. Leopard print gets slapped onto tracksuits and the adidas Boxing shoe. Guys and gals will get to dress up in a leopard hoodie complete with ears, tail and paws. Shoes are exaggerated with gold wings on the side and oversized tongues. You also have get a take on the tuxedo jacket using sportswear fabric with baggy sequin cropped trousers to match. The fringing trend gets incorporated with the adidas logo on a vest. It's as eclectic as one would expect from Scott to come up with and manages to merge the best of adidas and Scott into one collection.Available from selected fashion shops from 1st February 2009.

新發現 Swash

19th century botanical drawings were the starting point for Sarah Swash and Toshio Yamanaka for their S/S 09 collection "Botanical Psychedelia." "The more we looked at the drawings, the more unreal they became," says Swash, who together with Yamanaka have applied their unique illustrations to loose silk shapes. As always, it's the detailed ink illustrations that do the talking as the flora and fauna overtake the garments, as seen in the skechbooks which Swash allowed Dazed Digital to take a look at. The printing techniques which Swash have developed means they can combine intricate drawings with watercolour strokes that look like ink has seeped into the fabric. Cream satins and silks provide the perfect canvas for the drawings. Painters smocks get treated in pale pink, denim and tartan and add a different dimension to the collection that is as expected from Swash, heavily print dominated. On a rucksack and a sporty cardigan the illustrations are also given a different context. Prettiness is abound but Swash know how to pull it back to let their complex illustrations shine.
