Designer Jamie Wei Huang’s SS18 collection, “Dew”, was inspired by the fragmented recounting and retelling of personal experience. It was a concept drawn from Huang’s reflection on her own traditional Taiwanese culture, and captured by the beautiful, hesitantly accumulative piano piece which instigated her show.

 

The story began in stripes. Blues, pinks and greens growing in depth and vivacity with each piece, a gradual solidifying of colours to correlate that of re-emerging memory; the punctuation of bold reds, yellows and cobalt in the shoes and accessories, providing those colourful splashes of certainty which continue to emerge throughout the collection.

Huang’s Spring/Summer designs favour easy-fit clothing; wedding dresses and jumpsuits tying into her signature style of elongated silhouettes with a focus on creating contemporary fashion for the modern woman.

Wedding Dresses

The concept of construction was apparent in the rough-cut hems, sewn on pockets and undisguised use of zips, drawstrings and metallic rings which both decorated the pieces and acted as functional elements of the designs.

Creative cut-outs were another standout feature, with gaping knees and bare-backed jackets building on the impression of fragmented recollection, while asymmetric designs alluded to the inevitable incompleteness of memory.

Denim-look fabrics, and the brave contrasting of colour-block socks with easy slip-on sandals concluded the collection with a sense of layered individuality, promoting self-expression through contemporary fashion.

Originally from Taiwan, Huang graduated from Central Saint Martins College in London in 2012, launching her designer label Jamie Wei Huang to great critical acclaim in 2013; winning both the “Designer For Tomorrow” award, and the “Elle talent Award” for her AQ14 collection. Huang’s designs are now sold internationally in luxury retailers such as Harvey Nichols, Dover Street Market, David Jones Sydney and mimma ninni.

happy-socks-1-It's a strange combination we know but hey, everyone wears socks (well everyone that doesn't want cold toes) and Snoop Dog is no different.

This collaboration marks the first Happy Sock London flagship.

Happy Socks, the Swedish accessories brand, will plants its first ever London flagship store in Seven Dials at 62 Neal Street on December, 3.

Bringing happiness and quality to every corner of the world; Happy Socks started under the cloud-ridden April sky of yet another belated Swedish spring in 2008. Two friends had a vision: to spread happiness by turning an everyday essential into a colourful design piece with a rigid standard of ultimate quality, craftsmanship and creativity. A concept now brought to perfection by the Happy Socks collective of creators. Today Happy Socks are sold in more than 70 countries and on every continent.

The new London flagship store will carry all Happy Socks collections and act as a one-stop shop for socks and underwear for men and women, socks for kids, alongside the limited edition Happy Socks X Snoop Dogg collaboration and artworks. The new store concept clearly embodies the unique Happy Socks brand identity and offers an almost endless variety of models and designs, using a broad spectrum of colour combinations and original patterns. Simply put: there's a pair of high-quality socks and underwear for every occasion, mindset and style.

More on Snoop Dogs sock styles soon.
