London's New Wave: Sensory & Textural

Infusing fashion with sensations.


Let's explore the enchanting world of London's emerging designers for Fall 2024, with creations that are as inviting to the touch as they are delightful to the eyes. Imagine we're strolling through the vibrant streets of London, wrapped in the cool embrace of autumn, as I share with you the tales of Lucila Safdie, Patrick McDowell, Talia Byre, and Momonary x 3M—each weaving their unique threads into the rich tapestry of fashion.

Lucila Safdie

Her designs are a love letter to femininity, drawing on the poignant narratives of Sylvia Plath. Her collection, with its delicate laces and frilled shorts, brings a contemporary edge to '50s silhouettes, marrying them with an utterly irresistible schoolgirl charm. The polka dot midi-dresses and quilted jerseys are not just clothes; they're stories of youth and discovery, worn like badges of bold, unapologetic womanhood.


Patrick McDowell 

He invites us to the grand orchestra of fashion, with designs that resonate with the majestic presence of musical instruments. His voluminous gowns and instrument-printed attire are a symphony of style that captivates and enchants. The sheet music pattern that adorns his pieces isn't merely decorative; it's a narrative, a story woven into the fabric of his creations.



Talia Byre

The essence of elegance has been captured with a collection that sings in stripes, drawing inspiration from the timeless portraits of Beatrice Hastings by Amedeo Modigliani. Her palette, a dreamy mix of browns, and tans, with dashes of blue and red, feels like a warm, comforting embrace on a brisk fall day. Byre's knack for refining her brand's identity shines through in every piece, from the flamenco-hemmed skirts that dance with the wind to the soft caress of cashmere. It's like she's taken the soulful melodies of '60s girl groups and translated them into fashion.



Momonary x 3M

Momonary takes us on a different journey, one that's light and ethereal, with a collection that seems to float in a soft, pastel dream. In collaboration with 3M, they've crafted pieces that speak of far-off places and hidden maps, with thin chiffon layers that whisper tales of adventure. The gold-stitched flowers on their coats are like little secrets, guiding us through their imaginative world. It's a collection that feels like a gentle daydream.



 And just like that, London's emerging talents remind us that fashion is not just seen—it's felt, a tactile journey through the stories they weave into their creations.
