Les Guerriers......

A fantastic collaberation between the designer Joanne Hynes and artist extraordinaire Helen Steele who cooked up a storm at Vauxhall Fashion Scout for London Fashion Week yesterday with their collection entitled "Les Guerriers".The name a great play on the French term for "The warriors" and the widely used Irish term "gurrier". They really did it for the Irish coming out with a strong statement first collection. The patent and leather flat jodhpur boots were divine as were as were the beautiful multi - dyed furs. Aran knits with beautiful crystal embellishment, the straw hats and tweed had lots of Irish referencing and mixing this with high octane reds velvets,lots of leather, fur and psychedelic prints pushed this collection to new boundaries. The unique look shows the international fashion community that this pair are ones to watch.....
Their aim was to produce a collection that‘supports freedom of expression within art and fashion, with both disciplines becoming one" and this they certainly did with prints worthy of hanging in the Saatchi gallery. Enjoy the show(look closely and you can spot a few Irish fashion peeps sitting front row!)xxx
