Apu Jan is the designer that brings knitwear dreams to life. A contemporary London based womenswear label, Apu Jan is rich in innovative knitwear techniques. Each and every season this designer creates a fantasy world, inspired by different literature. His AW17 collection “From Here To There”, is a visual journey through a collection of doors from this world to the other side of the universe.

Apu’s designs are shaped by traditional oriental silhouettes that are brought to life through three-dimensional visual effects through his pioneering knitwear craftsmanship. This collection uses heavily structured jacquard, print and embroidery, opening the doors to vintage aesthetics and creating classic contours of checks, stripes and diamonds.

A colour palette made up of grey, black, cream, navy, burgundy and khaki, creates a classic mix of winter hues. All the designs were made ready to come off the catwalk and into your wardrobe for the autumn/winter season.

 

The runway was accompanied by music from the award winning DJ Questionmark, playing music inspired by the theme of the collection “From Here To There”.

One of the ten designers shortlisted for the Vogue Italy New Talent Contest and named as one of GQ Taiwan’s Men of the year, Apu Jan proves year after year through his designs he is one to watch!
