McQueen To Open A Savile Row Shop, Peter Pilotto Thinks London Fashion Is Finally Getting The Attention It Deserves, And More…


Alexander McQueen has announced plans for a new London menswear shop, expected to open on Savile Row in September. The location will offer clients bespoke garments through Huntsman, a famed local tailor. “[Savile Row] is where Lee started his career, so it is a nice thing to be going back,” McQueen president Jonathan Akeroyd tells British Vogue.

Not all British designers, however, have won the publicity and exposure of the late McQueen. The duo (Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos) behind London-based label Peter Pilotto tells The Wall Street Journal, “A while ago, it was like you had to start in London and try to get out of there as soon as possible and move to Paris or New York.” The designers feel that more recently, due attention has been given to London, a fashion week once skipped by international editors.

After Simon Spurr departed from his namesake label last Friday, the brand has temporarily halted all sample loans. The company’s in-house press agent, Sarvie Nasseri, tells WWD, “At this time all PR is on hold.” [WWD]

Tom Ford’s collections are shown in a notoriously quiet manner, with images taking months to surface. The designer has just released a short video of his latest Fall 2012 collection, which is abundant in exotic skins, gold hardware, and sharp cuts. [Grazia Daily]
