Fashion Scout Ones to Watch SS18 London Fashion Week (Ji Won Choi, NEO Design, Starsica, Triinu Pungitis)

Posted on

Ones to Watch is always an exciting show during Fashion Scout and this season seemed to be a particularly bumper crop of talent.                                               

JI WON CHOI

Ji Won Choi SS18 LFW Fashion Scout

We’ve been fascinated by the work of Ji Won Choi with its bold block colours and linear interruptions that make some of the pieces look almost like line drawn animation. The thuggery of the colours is wonderful too – a smack of bright scarlet, a whack of pink and classic black and white or white on black. Tunics, ponchos and floor sweeping coats were alive with movement, from the linear prints, to the trailing tapes. The genderless collection was entitled EXCESSIVISM and sought to explore issues such as waste and diversity in an invigorating way.

NEO DESIGN

 NEO Design SS18 LFW Fashion Scout

Serbian label NEO’s Ones to Watch collection felt ever so slightly Game of Thrones – designs for those with a warrior mindset. Variations on a theme of all black were few as the real detail lay in the wealth of different textures and the impactful structuring. The label is all about the clash of future and history, connecting traditions to futuristic aesthetics and concepts. It’s a new vision of functionality and design that doesn’t follow the cutting patterns you might be used to – or even your ideas of what an accessory should be. In some ways the label is a fascinating exploration of what it means to wear something and how much the perceptions we inherit can hold us back.

STARSICA

Starsica SS18 LFW Fashion Scout Ones to Watch

Starsica brought a serious splash of colour to the SS18 Ones to Watch catwalk – and ruffles, and layers, textures and prints. This label (whose name has evolved from ‘star seeker’) is deep with influences of philosophical reasoning, as well as the desire to creative every day luxury that is wearable too. While AW17 was ethereal, ladylike and a little subdued, SS18 was a riot of colour and fun – no tonal translations or smooth lines here, it was all about bold combinations of shades and finding new ways to innovate on classic design. The collection was detail-rich from the hats to the shoes – our particular favourites were the elaborate ankle cuffs that swished as the models strode, the egg yolk yellow top and the grass suitcases.

TRIINU PUNGITS

Triinu Pungitis SS18 LFW Fashion Scout Ones to Watch

Triinu Pungits has 13 years of textiles and design experience under her belt – the Estonian creative is not just a designer but a teacher of fashion too. Her work is experimental and expressive – and several of the SS18 pieces decked out in waving foam arms were seriously avant-garde. The Ones to Watch collection was largely black, white and grey with splashes of red, mostly heart shaped, and some dizzying patterns and prints. The hands motif strayed into layered up skirts but the simplicity of silhouettes ensured that even the intense prints and the waving hands felt like a cohesive and impactful theme.
