Amelia’s Magazine loves print, thumb illustrations and innovative design, cheap so you can imagine – for us – walking into Eley Kishimoto’s presentation titled Pattern Lab was like stumbling into a sweet shop. A sweet shop full of bold printed clothes. The always friendly Laura from Relative Mo explained the concept behind the lab by first showing us the presentation rails downstairs, complete with an exquisitely illustrated slide show.

After carefully examining (holding back from excitedly rummaging) the varity of prints, my fellow Amelia’s Collaborator Matt Bramford and I returned upstairs to hear the story behind the Pattern Lab, and it’s four wooden drums positioned down the centre of the store. At this point Laura took us through the development from question mark, square, circle and stripe into the intricate patterns to be found on the collection downstairs.

This beautiful presentation came complete with an exercise book detailing the idea of experimenting whilst researching the history and function of patterns. The question mark mutating into the squirrels tail was a particular favourite.

Looking to spice up your look, shop or even your love life? Then look no further than hot new East London label Lake & Liberty.

LFW_Lake&Liberty_05

Launching only last year, erectile they’ve already got quite a hip following, with Lady Gaga the matriarch of said followers (probably the only time you’ll hear Lady Gaga and matriarch in the same sentence. I digress.)

LFW_LakeLiberty_LadyGaga

They create unique leather pieces inspired by the London Fetish Scene (IS there one? *googles London Fetish Scene*) with each piece suggesting a hint of kink, distanced massively from anything of the terribly-full-on-Ann-Summers-wahey-how’s-your-father ilk.

Their debut collection, showcased as part of the WeKnowWhatYouDidLastNight space just off Carnaby Street, is small but perfectly formed. There are eye patches with hand-carved eyelash marks or protruding spikes, worn with a thick band of silk white ribbon. For the dominatrix there are patent-leather collar pieces; contemporary and provocative interpretations of the medieval ruff. Each design is bound by rivets, adding a further seductive element.

LFW_Lake&Liberty_03

LFW_Lake&Liberty_04

My favourite pieces, undoubtedly, are those made for the wrists. Making further use of the properties of leather and how it can be manipulated with rivets, these are highly unwearable statement pieces, and I HEART this chic wrist adornment with it’s playful ribbon influence:

Okay, okay – it’s not all about sex. There are some really beautiful objects here. Yet, these aren’t items that you’d wear to the supermarket. In fact, I’d say only those über-fashionable stylistas could pull these hand-crafted objects off in public. Otherwise, wear with caution and enjoy in the bedroom.
