Knitwear designer Helen Lawrence put together a strong collection for Ones to Watch this season at Fashion Scout, showing as one of three on Friday 13th September.

For Spring/Summer 2014 Ones to Watch at Fashion Scout presented three wildly diverse prospects: first up Helen Lawrence, a textiles graduate of Chelsea College of Art and the RCA, with a new spin on the complex patchwork designs she has produced previously. Her innovative printed knitwear collection came in a palette of limey green, baby pink and slate grey, and contained many wearable pieces such as cute acid washed short sleeved sweat tops and boxy knit sweaters. Garments collapsed in curly asymmetrical waterfall shapes, with split skirts or overlays of plastic opening to reveal shorts in various guises. Most pieces came with grungy distressed hems and were covered with her trademark abstract squiggle designs which up close had a plastic touch. Styling wise, I loved the well matched grey perspex peep-toe chunky heeled ankle boots, worn with marbled pop socks. A clever collection with an eye on production: we need more of this foresight from graduates please!

    Quite Blade Runner – with the transparent plastic skirts! Nice knitwear too: does distressed also read as deconstructed? Perhaps not…
