Stitch Menswear and accessories trade show
On Monday i took a trip to the Stitch menswear and accessories trade show at the Old Bilingsgate market. I was very inspired by some of the stuff there especially Social Suicide, D.D.Dundee and Woods and Woods man.
Here are some photos from my day:
From Social Suicide:
I love the idea of using a netted T shirt as a blank canvas to stitch on, this is so effective.
Lovely knitted lapel
Quilting to look like an upholstered chair.
Some really beautiful mixtures of fabrics here and a good faux- fur collar!!
lovely knitted capes
Cut off casual trousers
applique sections on the front of shirt to frame it into an art piece.
contrasting fabrics and colours to create a unique look. i love the collar in the picture above, not so sure about the square below though!
Woods and Woods man:
Contrasting with leather fabrics on the lower jacket, this is a really nice mix of materials
I love the double lapel affect
beautiful ties and cravats in matching patterns to the shirts. Would look cool either matched to the same print or mixed up.
A very nice man explained to me on the stall that they started off just designing shoes, and i think this is where thier forte lies. Some really nice manly shoes. They have then designed clothes around the market who shop for their shoes. He says they are planning to grow in style within the clothing designs.
The union jack flag popped up a few times on various stalls.....seems like this look is coming back again!
