Simon Ekrelius - London Fashion Week S/S 2010.
A fellow Swede, the London-based designer Simon Ekrelius, is making headlines all around town right now. I am personally stunned by his latest SS 2011 collection. With inspiration from the London Gherkin (Norman Fosters tower 30 St Mary Axe) and the fabulous Grace Jones´ silhouette, he has presented a collection full of contrasts and drama.
And it is all there, everything that make up good design; straight lines, a “strict” colour palette (black, grey, silver and white) and a wide mixture of textures. My personal favourites in this collection were the harlequin style, black and white jumpsuits which are wearable as well as stand-out-from-the-crowd outfits. Architectural design with a personal twist, I would call it. Love it!
