LONDON’S HOT NEW TALENT
Up-and-coming designers are injecting a unique energy into London’s fashion landscape. First up is Lucas Nascimento (left), who makes playing with the traditional his forte. “I like to create silhouettes that are not typical to knitwear,” he says. Beautiful tailoring is the key component at MATH (center), where uncomplicated cuts in leather, silk, jersey and tweed have made the brand a favorite with shoppers who want a dose of sex with their chic pieces. Ryan Lo (right) focuses on the fluffy, girly, tactile and effusive side of the color. This is fun fashion re-imagined as highbrow theater.
