#LFW: Alistair James Spring Summer 2018 Collection
Nicholas Alistair Walsh and David James Wise presented their SS18 Collection Love Conquers All at London Fashion Week. The collection, inspired by Sleeping Beauty and Briar Rose, focuses on the fairy-tale dreamers and lovers.
“Alistair James continue to explore unique hand-drawn prints in SS18, the briar rose taking center stage as a symbol of both beauty and danger thanks to its barbed thorns. In particular the duo’s bespoke “Enchanted Briar” jacquard, with its woven metallic emulating a floral spell. For this season Alistair James partners with Swarovski to create a magical ambience of the fairy-tales that have inspired the collection The crystals themselves are being used in a range of ways, from draped chains to bespoke heart and star embellishments.”
“This season will be our first presentation, storytelling has always been a central part of our process, embracing this platform is allowing us to deliver a clear narrative.”– David James Wise
“As a brand Swarovski have always championed craftsmanship and creative expression; both of which are central to our ethos. By using Swarovski crystals we have been able to elevate pieces to bring our story to life.”-Nicholas Alistair Walsh
