I attended the BLOW press day yesterday – there are some great brands over there right now.
My fave has got to be Ekaterina Kukhareva, whose AW11 collection is based around the concept of a Russian Tsarina. I love that she uses knitwear and tassels. It’s all deliciously dark and very ornate but in a new wintry way – due to the prevalence of knitwear and crochet.
Another favourite has got to be J Maskrey for the kitsch use of skulls..
It’s decidedly glam rock, but modernised (which, let’s face it, is bound to get my attention seeing as I’m a bit of a rocker at heart).
And look! –
I am in love with these J Maskrey keyrings, which BLOW were giving away in goodie bags to attendees.
They’re sitting rather happily alongside my hedgehog and dog.
