Today I am not just sharing my work with you but also a new AW13 collection by amazing menswear designer Jenny Schwarz.

Just before the Christmas break, I worked on the look book for amazing menswear designer Jenny Schwarz AW13 collection. Jenny‘s collections always feature pieces that are beautifully cut and tailored. This is a rare quality to find but tailoring has been in Jenny‘s family for over a decade, and some would say it is in her blood.
Jenny asked me to do the styling on her latest collection and I was delighted as I have really wanted to work with Jenny for along time. The lookbook was photographed by Michael Furlonger and Bunny Allen did hair and make up. Props and set designer Lorna Kelly, was also brought on board to bring Jenny‘s visions alive for this shoot.
I have been following Jenny‘s collections for a few seasons now and I can honestly say that with each collection, she grows as a designer. As I mentioned above, Jenny’s cut of tailoring and attention to detail (a girl after my own heart) is beautiful. It is hard to pick out my favourite pieces within this new collection as I believe that this will truly be the collection to push her work and name out there into the spotlight.
For this collection Jenny was influence by Jesse James and the tailored jackets and trousers worn by him and other horsemen of the era but she still manages to stay true to her signature that she is now creating for herself including leather jackets and coats with sheepskin collars, cashmere jumpers and long johns (which Bunny and I are hoping Jenny will be made in women’s sizes so that we can purchase a pair), shirts and panelled trousers.
Today’s film is by Arianna Cerrito.
This film is very different from the ones that I have been posting about so far as this doesn’t tell a story in the same way as the other designers. Filmed as an interview, it looks to inform the viewer about the thought behind the brand and collection.
Although, I understand the concept behind the brand, the clothing for me is not really my style as I prefer more edgy clothing but if you were to take this element away you are left with some beautiful jewellery that can be worn in various ways and can be added to edgier pieces of clothing in order to create a unique style.
What do you think of the video and Arianna Cerrito’s collection? What are your favourite pieces?
I hope you have enjoyed reading my post and I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Remember to join me later for another fashion film.
Yesterday, Felicities PR sent me through new fashion films by some of London’s most talented new designers. Over the next 8 days, I will be posting a film a day and sharing what I love about these films. It is also an opportunity for you to share with me your thoughts on them.
Below is Felicities show reel which is something that will whet your appetite and show you a little bit of what you can expect to see over the few days within this feature.
