It might be the height of summer but I’m already thinking ahead to autumn – probably because the British ‘summer’ has been especially dreadful this year!
When I was thinking about what I wanted to do for autumn/winter this year, I was inspired by the thought of dark cosy nights by a roaring fire (a purely imaginary one in my case, as I don’t have a fireplace, and the police don’t generally look kindly on people starting impromptu fires in the middle of SW11). But that’s all an aside!
Winter is a physically dark time, but there’s something very special about it – being able to hunker down and just be peaceful. And eat loads of chocolate to ward off the cold and miserable weather!
So this season I wanted to go a little darker – a little, dare I say it, spookier! When I look back on my designs since I started Glitter Punk, and particular in the past year, my interests and style have changed so enormously. I wanted to bring some more illustrated style into this new collection – in particular my ongoing love affair with sleeping cats.
So I’m delighted to introduce my latest collection for A/W17 – Cats & Magic.
