One of the most exciting runway shows this season (well, as always) was MAN which featured the three fantastic designers Alan Taylor, Bobby Abley and Craig Green. Craig sent out complete head-to-toe tie-dye looks which have been constructed from fabric he has hand dyed himself. This labour of love was certainly worth it as honing the technique meant that the swirls sat perfectly in placements on the garments. These patterns were then replicated perfectly in paint by David Curtis-Ring on the canvas constructed accessories that Craig has made his trademark. These artworks have now been translated into a highly wearable and covetable footwear collaboration with Purified. The day after the runway show, these pieces were exhibited at the Fashion East installations to get a real close look at the magnificent detail involved. Time to snaz up your summer wardrobe!
