Well, New Year are already here and time to change or improve your style and to get some inspiration for the new season. I highly recommend you to visit Scoop International.
From 12-14 February, London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery will host a hand-picked selection of contemporary and directional womenswear, footwear, accessory and lifestyle collections, all highlighting the best in unique and individual design.
International names taking part in the show for the first time this season include Italian labels Patrizia Pepe (I wrote about her before, watch the link below), Jucca and Twin Set, French label Hartford and Swedish collections Fillipa K and Hunkydory, among the leading names in Scandinavian womenswear design. They’ll be joining a line-up which already includes Belgian designer label Sandrina Fasoli, France’s Plein Sud Jeanius, quirky and eclectic Japanese collection As Know As and Italian label Hache, renowned for its stunningly individual pieces and masterful fabric choices.
You’ll also find the best of British design at Scoop. Look out for contemporary takes on classic British design from brands including Gloverall, Lavenham, Liberty Freedom and Johnstons of Elgin, whilst collections from the likes of Bella Freud, Bastyan and Handwritten illustrate why the UK’s contemporary womenswear designers remain renowned the world over.
Accessories collections making their début at the show include the unique and individual Orla Kiely and LA label Thursday Friday, whose just-launched Together bag has become a fashionista must-have. Buyers will also be able to view the first collection from footwear label Robert Clergerie produced under new creative director Roland Mouret, alongside directional footwear from the likes of Lama Peach, The Jacksons, Mexicana and Candice Cooper.
