Scotland Re:Designed had an absolute ball at London Fashion Week. Read below about the brands doing us Scots proud at the showrooms sponsored by Sunglass Hut!
Scottish-born Samantha McCoach has been living in London for nine years and founded the brand Le Kilt in 2014 in a bid to reinvent and revolutionise the traditional kilt. Learning the history and heritage behind kilt-making and basic skills from her granny, she adds a dash of modernity into each collection she produces. Her stunning collection, sponsored by Boden in the Future British stand, which supports and nurtures emerging British talent, Samantha’s collection features punk-pins, pleated kilts and knitted cardigans.
William Chambers, well known for his classically beautiful and elegant headpieces has seen mentoring and long-term business support from SR:D, paving his way towards showing in Paris and London. In 2014, he won our accessories award. Inspired by his own back-garden, we particularly loved his floral-filled pieces with a geometric, contemporary effect. With second-to-none craftsmanship and quality, William Chambers is stocked in the worlds most respected retailers including Harrods, Fenwick and Fortnum & Mason.
Teatum Jones, the brainchild of design-duo Catherine Teatum and Rob Jones began their journey by intensively researching and taking inspiration from the backstreets of Glasgow and its LGBT community. The stand-out pieces for us were the graffiti emblazoned white denim shorts, skirt and jacket. With Glasgow quite passionately raising its middle finger to conformity, this notion is apparent throughout their oversized wearables with energetic primary-coloured brush strokes by contemporary artist Tom Leamon. With fans such as international model Misha Hart and founder of Dead Beet Records Conor Goldie, what’s not to love? #ToughSS17
