The Split-Second Preview: Sibling

-------

The Fall ’14 Ready-to-Wear collections are under way in London, and will be followed by the shows in Milan and Paris. Before the new clothes hit the runway, we’ve asked some of the most anticipated names to offer a sneak peek. Per usual, it’s a busy time for all—designers and fashion followers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length at 140 characters or less. Our entire collection of Fall ’14 previews is available here.

Barbie Loves London

-------

Barbie's by Sister by Sibling, Fred Butler and Nasir Mazhar

If the past few years are any indication, Barbie has a thing for young London—designers, that is. Louise Gray, Roksanda Ilincic, and Gareth Pugh have all made a special little something for the blonde and her boyfriend, whether it be Dalston-appropriate duds or, in Ilincic’s case, a London dream house. Now, in celebration of Selfridges’ new fourth-floor toy shop, which opens this week, emerging Brit-based brands Sister by Sibling, Fred Butler, and Nasir Mazhar have each dressed five one-off dolls. Sibling’s Cozette McCreery, Sid Bryan, and Joe Bates designed a gaggle of knit looks (above, left), while Butler turned out a series of quirky, sculptural ensembles (above, center). Mazhar created some hard-edged streetwear styles—we especially enjoy the bucket hat and sweat suit getup he fashioned for Ken (above, right). All fifteen dolls will be on display—and for sale—in the toy shop’s Barbie department.

Sibling Scores Woolmark’s European Prize

A look from Sibling's Spring '14 Menswear collectionProps to Sibling‘s Joe Bates, Sid Bryan, and Cozette McCreery, who, WWD reports, have won the European leg of the International Woolmark Prize. Selected by a panel of judges that included Angela Missoni, Godfrey Deeny, Susanne Botschen, Franca Sozzani, and Style.com’s Tim Blanks, Sibling will take home $46,108 and will now compete for the overall prize. For the next six months, the London-based trio, who launched their quirky, colorful range back in 2008, will work on a merino-wool-centric capsule, which will be judged alongside those of other international finalists.

And don’t think Woolmark has forgotten about the good ol’ U.S. of A. The U.S.-based competitor will be announced on July 9 (finalists include Altuzarra, Creatures of the Wind, Wes Gordon, Whit, Bibhu Mohapatra, Daniel Vosovic, Ohne Titel, Timo Weiland, Tucker, and Giulietta), and the international honoree—set to be revealed early next year—will receive $92,210 and the chance to be sold in retailers like Harvey Nichols, Saks Fifth Avenue, Joyce, and 10 Corso Como.

Three’s A Trend: Naked Ambition

-------

Nude-printed looks by Sibling, Christopher Kane, and Richard Nicoll

Nudes on clothes. It’s a novel concept, and one that’s emerging as a trend on the London runways. Richard Nicoll has long collaborated with Linder Sterling—a British artist informed by Manchester’s seventies punk scene—and for Spring, the latter whipped up a montage of reptile and avian patterns atop vintage gay pornography. “I found the source material in a bookshop in Barcelona, and Linder treated it with snakes and birds of prey,” Nicoll told Style.com. “She almost always uses the body as a canvas for her collages. Look three—the bomber jacket—is my favorite.”

In both his men’s Spring and women’s Resort ’14 collections, Christopher Kane webbed 3-D grids to create naked female torsos and male skulls. The images lent a lo-fi, diagrammatic pop to simple T-shirts and sweatshirts.

And finally, Sibling—the riotous knitwear label founded by East End cool kids Joe Bates, Sid Bryan and Cozette McCreery—anchored its collection around a pinup-girl theme. At times, that girl found herself undressed and in various states of undulation across a number of allover prints. “We found the inspiration through World War II plane imagery, as well as vintage T-shirts,” McCreery told Style.com. “We were also after that West Side Story feel of young guys and girlie images. It’s almost quite innocent.”
