I know this is an AW11 collection and we are coming up to September, however, I have just come across the beautiful design works of Tom Lipop

Mr Lipop AW11 full show from VAUXHALL FASHION SCOUT on Vimeo.

And here is what he has to say:

''Inspired by the long historical lineage of British fashion, Tom Lipop is an innovative and demiurgic designer looking to utilize his natural creativity and passion for contemporary design through the generation of his own Avant Guarde collections. His business partner Eser Aydemir, with an Msc in International Business Management, advocates Lipop London to further their distinctive style and ingenuity whilst foreseeing the business side of the company using marketing and management skills.

Lipop has created a very stylized handwriting using beautiful illustration, technical cutting, experimenting with new fabrics, and garment construction. Alongside this creativity and his prominent design work Lipop of London aspire to great designers such as the Heritage of Massimo Osti, The Individualism of Henrik Vibskov and the Technical Aesthetic of the more recent Aitor Throup; three designers who push the boundaries of fashion craft with successful, conceptual and aesthetically progressive garments.

Utilizing and constantly adapting skills Lipop has honed and developed over the last few years of experience within the textile trade, has lead us to feel confident in our contribution to the fashion industry; Toms completion of his challenging BA Hons degree in Fashion and Textiles (menswear) and his successful application to Sky One’s ‘Project Catwalk’ highlighting not only his high-level of design competence but also an ability and drive to push and excel himself within the industry. Indeed, in this latter experience for Sky One, Tom was recurrently placed under intense pressure to create innovative and original designs within short time periods, which not only successfully matched strict briefs, but also concurrently demonstrated his aptitude and dedication to the production of forward thinking and contemporary garments.
Indeed, Toms involvement in ‘Project Catwalk’ allowed him to fulfill design and pattern cutting roles at Griffin Laundry, House of Holland, Halfpenny London and Nathan Jenden, where he has been able to implement his skills and learn some new techniques.

Freelance fashion design was an integral aspect of Tom’s life allowing him to develop and evolve innovative structures not just for Lipop’s collection but to be able to create and put other peoples ideas to paper and of course onto the body, a skill they have actively delivered. Both have been challenging but greatly rewarding; a concept that is successful and fulfilling as well as driving Lipop London’s ambition and motivating them to succeed.
Lipop London Debuted their collection ‘Battle of the Sardines’ at Brighton Fashion Week 2009 and with the Upcoming arrival of Lipop’s New Collection showing as part of London Fashion Weeks Off Schedule Show ‘A la Mode’ and various installations around the UK. Lipop London are enthused for the future.''

There is a perfect balance of feminity and masculinity of the collection, I adore the blocked hues, berets, gorgeous hoods and cropped 3/4 length bottoms. Everything screams European sophistication to me. I'm in love.
