I started off my day with a double dose of Canadian style. First up was
Jeremy Laing who presented his collection in a glossy white loft space in Chelsea.
The show opened with a zip-back jacket and skinny pants in bleach-print velvet, which reflected the starting point for the collection:
tailored jackets and textures. “I frequently will start my design process with
dresses but you can kind of get bored with the way you work, so it’s nice to try a different approach to see what happens,” Laing told me. This season, he made a conscious decision to opt for “something with a more tactile sensitivity” rather than the digital prints, for which he is well-known. “Bleach printing is a reactive process that removes dye and ink from the fibre, so it’s harder to control. But that’s the beauty of it, you get variety, which is cool.”
