A host of fresh — and returning — names will dot the London fashion scene this season. Here's some of the city's buzziest talent.
Krystof Strozyna Krystof Strozyna launched his MA collection at the Central Saint Martins graduate show in London last year, and was a first-time winner of the New Generation sponsorship from Topshop and the British Fashion Council. Shortly afterward, his sculptural cotton dresses, all in subtle shades of beige, were picked up by Harrods. And though his designs are minimal, the Polish-born, London-based Strozyna doesn't shy away from adornment. For the CSM show, his models wore clunky chain necklaces and oversize black lacquered wood bangles that were as much a feature of the collection as the garments. For fall, the designer has been inspired by Bauhaus architecture.
