when Mark fast left the fashion world for a couple of seasons I was dvoid of kntwear to lust over. I discovered Apu Jan quietly in Paris in a show room. His innovative techniques left me speechless.
Contemporary London based womenswear label Apu Jan has made a name for itself on the fashion scene for the literature-inspired fantasy worlds it creates through each new collection. Today sees the launch of his SS18 at London Fashion Week but let's look at the fall collection ready to buy now .
For his Autumn Winter 2017 collection “From Here to There”, Apu Jan took the audience on a visual journey, shaped by the traditional oriental silhouettes for which he has become so famous, yet modernised and refreshed with more texturised 3D effects and innovative knitwear techniques.
The collection features heavy use of jacquard to add structure to the pieces, as well as intricate embroidery, and classic checked, striped and diamond prints.
Materials cleverly contrast with each other to create dimensions, resulting in a collection with one foot in tradition and history and the other firmly placed in contemporary western-style looks.
This collection made my imagination run wild and I loved the otherworldly vintage feel which transported me to a parallel universe.
