Basso & Brooke -

ARTISTIC RENDITION Basso & Brooke base their work around digital prints, which appear every season as a splashy expression of their chosen theme.

Julien Macdonald -

LIFE AQUATIC On a recent trip to the Red Sea, Julien MacDonald soaked up the local culture and was fascinated by the port’s fishing lifestyle.

House of Holland -

MATERIAL WORLD Last season, Henry Holland (leader of the London "It Girls"), produced a Pantone strip-inspired collection that felt a bit too dramatic and conceptual for his fast-fashion fan base.
