What an amazing great character! I spoke with Mr. Richard Quinn in a pretty relaxed way, at first I wasn´t aware he was actually the designer (zero on face recognition for me!). If you have an opportunity to talk to him, he is quite cool, I guess I´m also fond of him cause he reminded me of an old friend from Argentina.
The thing is I was pretty mesmerized with the items hanging on the rail... oh gosh, those prints... and the dresses had this flair of fifties sixties, big floral patters, heavy fabric... oh how I wish some of them were hanging on my wardrobe...
Shock by shoes! There is no other way to describe the situation here. I dared to ask the beautiful lady (think a young and smart dressed Penelope Cruz type of woman here), nearby the amazing collection of shoes, for a moment I wondered if she was indeed the designer and she was!, so I just shot lots of questions, did't want to miss any details. In a nutshell "I create shoes for the poweful woman", and she does, her name is Zeynep Dag.
The collection is a luxury for the eyes and each piece calls you to strike a POWER pose in them!
I was drawn by the vintage Ralph Lauren suit, repurposed and revisited with the intention of merging the city lady with the urban lady... I think is a fantastic achievement, also suits are one of my very soft spots when it comes to dressing up.
Didn't have the chance to actually talk to the designers. This excellent brand is a collaboration between Vinti Tan and Paul Andrews, but, I'm aiming to send some questions and if possible visit their studio in London. They've been around for quite some time and the ethos behing their brand is so very impressive.
And as always, be cool, be great, be yourself!
