Mother of Pearl.

I stumbled across this label in Soho House last week- and now I am hooked. Only six seasons in, the founder, Maia Norman (married to Damien Hirst) collaborates with a different designer for each collection to create a vision between artwork and fashion. Past collaborators include Walton Ford, Carsten Holler and Keith Tyson, whilst this season New York-based creative, Fred Tomaselli holds centre stage. Known for his intricate paintings and collages, Tomaselli creates hyperdelic images using photographic and paint to create detail and intrigue. Hummingbird and kaleidoscope motifs on palazzo pants and bomber jackets, retro full length soft leather skirts, electric blue, shimmering bronze with lots of texture and contrast in shape- yeah, kind of just want it all. (Had a sneak peak at their SS13 ‘Resort’ range with British artist Gary Hume- there is definitely a rose printed floor length cap-sleeved dress and matching leather holdall with my name on it!)
