DESIGNER TO WATCH – HOLLY RUSSELL

USE-JPG-HOLLY

You’ve seen the corners, you've felt the padding – for AW, the shoulder is king! Whether they're on boxy jackets or sheath-like tunics, we can't get enough of this season's hottest trend and are quite taken with these images that recent graduate, Holly Russell sent over for us to have a look at.

Inspired by animals and minerals, the designer has managed to mingle the organic with the man-made.  Thousands of jewel beetle wings clamour over sleeves, not only displaying the breathtaking beauty of the natural world but also making a serious sartorial statement! As do the synthetic hair pieces and digital prints that sweep the edges of drapes, tunics and billowing gowns. 

Gargantuan shoulders are an AW must-have and Holly's are certainly the most exciting pair we've seen to date!
