A Swash Autumn 2012

Swash London
Fall/Winter 2012-13

The latest collection by trailblazing brand Swash London is an imagery explosion of enchanting prints and enticing colours, set in a fantasy world where your every fashion dream is answered in the most outlandish display. The inventive duo behind the label are couple Sarah Swash and Toshio Yamanaka, who's combined creative minds have yielded an impressive clothing range for Autumn/Winter 2012, entitled 'Phantastes', modeled after the 19th century novel by George MacDonlad.

What sets Swash apart are their intricately hand-painted fabrics and whimsical digital silk prints that tell a story each of their own. This season, the garments illustrate a tale of unhinged antique clocks, romantic rose scented gardens, a forest filled with fauna and exotic flora, vintage mirrored wardrobes and chaise lounges, deers and dogs, partridges and pinecones. Now that sounds like the type of imaginative story that I would like to read.

The equestrian theme is coloured into life by sweet pastels, lush teals and mustard and energetic oranges. Argyle coats, knitted sweaters, swish skirts over patterned pants, embroidered bomber jackets, the sway of a fringed hem and beautifully printed scarves all make up this Regency-roused range. Adding to the quirk and curiosity are pom-pom topped hats, matching hosiery that seemingly blend into their printed surroundings, leather gloves and an assortment of handheld bags. Take a dive into the animated world of Swash London with their fascinating A/W 2012-13 collection...Click on image for a larger view.














Swash London is available at many different boutiques and stores around the world, as mentioned on their stockist page via their website Swash.co.uk. I urge you to visit their remarkably designed site, its something to satiate your digi-senses.


P.S The lovely Ivana from Macarons & Peals interviewed me on her blog, which you can read here.

Love this equestrian theme ... stunning hand-painted designs, reminding me of some of the beautiful designs on silk scarves (especially the black and white skirt on the left in the fourth row down)! I was so busy last week and then away over the weekend so I didn't have a chance to make it to my friends' fabulous blogs to visit and say thanks for stopping by the Masked Ball post and am just getting around to doing that, so thank you! Hope you have a wonderful week, Sam, love! ~xoSandy

What an interesting designer. The pieces are gorgeous but I don't think I can pull off the whole entire look. I would split them apart. Beautiful use of color.

Hi, dear Sam, I am back to the blogosphere!
So I just came back from the doctor and she said I just had a strong cold and the back pain is due to the effort of coughing, so, I'll be brand new in 2 weeks (her words).
I loooved this collection now, and I'll visit both their site as the other with your interview! Very curious about it!
Hope you are fine and thanks for your amazing support!
