    Harlot & Bones

    Today, Saturday 1 March, French retailer colette launched Harlot & Bones, Amanda Harlech and Dominic Jones' collaborative jewellery collection. The campaign image for the gorgeous collection was shot by our very own Nick Knight and features Harlech's daughter, Tallulah Harlech wearing the turquoise stoned perfume bottle necklace from the collection.

    Inspired by Edwardian mourning jewellery and vintage heirlooms, the line is a true collaboration of Harlech and Jones’ unique aesthetics. Imagined and developed through a number of mutual interests, including the arts and the natural world, the range includes beetle-wing motif pendants, rings and earrings presented on traditional shields and lockets and poison rings similar to those that have been used throughout history to carry perfume and keepsakes. Excitingly, Harlot & Bones will be a permanent collaboration, with one collection released each year. This range will be available to buy from our SHOWstudio Shop from March - get saving!

    Dissecting Chalayan!

    Footage of our Hussein Chalayan panel is now available to watch on demand. We were lucky enough to have the insights of editor and writer Dal Chodha, fresh from editing a Hussein Chalayan themed issue of Archivist. 

    Archivist takes an 'inspirational rather than aspirational' view of fashion, exploring collections in depth and bringing to the foreground aspects and details that in this climate of fast fashion and excessive consumption, tend to be overlooked. 

    The Three Faces: Archive Chalayan issue sees Lida Fox, Kristen McMenamy and Bibiana Beglau wearing clothes from the archive, all dated between 1997 and 2010 'realising his concepts from the imaginative prison of nostalgia and academe.

    If you missed the pensive panel discussion watch it now, and check out Archivist Chalayan for an in-depth exploration of the designer's work.
