Yesterday I attended the press day held by The Communications Store in London.
It was good to see so many talented British designers under one roof.
Jonathan Saunders, Peter Pilotto, Todd Lynn, House of Holland, Richard Nicoll, Amanda Wakeley, Antonio Berardi and Christoper Kane.
The international designers included Versace, Versus, L’Agence, Missoni, RM by Roland Mouret and the king Elie Saab.
Versace have designed a mobile phone with LG. It has so many functions it will make your blackberry or IPhone redundant.
I was informed that the gold trim phone with the trademark Medusa symbol can cost thousands of pounds depending if you want to bedazzle your phone with diamonds.
For the fellas. Roland Mouret will be bringing out a menswear line of 15 looks.
The label is called Mr. by Roland Mouret.
I think it’s clever how the RM has been reversed to MR, but I’m easily impressed.
There are no exposed zipper in this collection, just manly suits, sweaters, pants and jeans.
As I said yesterday I met Christopher Kane at the press day, who designs his own line and Versus.
I asked him how he was coping designing two collections a season. He said it’s challenging, but a lot of fun.
At present he’s skype’ing the Milan office as he can’t be there due to the flight bans in Europe.
