EXPERIMENTAL REFINEMENT

Peridot LondonUK (peridotlondon.co.uk)
Delicate, versatile, sartorial…
Peridot’s pieces have a relaxed and comfortable allure. Kiwi born but raised in Singapore, in 2009 Rachel Wilson decided to follow her passion for fashion and, parallel to a career in international tax consulting, established the womenswear label Peridot London. Granddaughter of Ernest Asser founder of the traditional shirt-maker & dresser line Turnbull&Asser, this designer uses her grandfather’s traditional tailoring techniques creating garments with a sartorial touch and a deeply contemporary feel. Urban and versatile the Spring/Summer collection is characterized by linear silhouettes and warm yet luminous colors offset by flashes of turquoise with a minimal and understated flavor.

Eleanor BoltonUK (eleanorbolton.com)
Bright, tactile, chunky…
Eleanor loves chunky jewelry pieces with a strong personality and artistic movements such as the De Stijl or the Memphis Group. Graduated from the Royal College of Art in London, Eleanor Bolton founded the eponymous brand in 2010. The jewelry creations are handmade in her East London studio stitching and coiling cotton ropes mixed with brass elements. The Spring/Summer collection entitled Memphis is inspired by the design group led by Ettore Sottsass: sculptural in the forms, the necklaces and bracelets are extremely lightweight and are tinged with vivid shades such as splashes of fluorescent colors which confer to the pieces a tactile and bright allure.

OuigalItaly (ouigal.com)
Bright, positive, genuine…
The scent of the Ocean on a California beach, a chit-chat among friends or a sunny day in Paris. Martina Ferri Faggioli drew inspirations from these daily moments to design the collection of the newborn footwear brand Ouigal. Graduated in Fashion Design from the Milanese Marangoni Institute, this young designer avails herself of the expertise of the shoe production company Falca to create a product entirely made in Italy positive and cheerful. Pastel colours, laser perforated or laminated leathers, cork platforms or chunky wood heels characterize the 20 pieces of this debut collection that mixes French sophistication and a relaxed Californian attitude.
