Introducing: RUN&FELL

Bursting onto the ASOS Marketplace with their collection of specialist shirts and t shirts, this brand is one that really impresses.

They have definitely made an impression on the public, gaining a following on Twitter and soon to have their own website.

Whether you want a plain tee, or a handmade one with a funky pattern, this is the brand for you! Combining the modern artistry on the streets with the beauty of the English past to creates a completely unique look that really stands out from the crowd.

They have recently been chosen to showcase their collection at Vogue’s Fashion Night Out (#FNO) and I am extremely excited to see what the have to offer.

Granted, their pieces are a bit pricey (£40+ for a t-shirt), they are made from quality material that is proven to last long. And their designs are to die for.

Check them out on the ASOS Marketplace: (https://marketplace.asos.com/boutique/runfell)

Product of the Week – Brooklyn We Go Hard.

Born in 2010, Brooklyn We Go Hard is a label created by two friends fascinated by elsewhere.

Their new collection holds the winter colours that are apparent in all collection in the colder months.

The sweatshirts are especially a great addition to an outfit (albeit an expensive addition) keeping you warm but looking smart and sophisticated at the same time.

Only available for a limited time, the jumpers are a mix between cotton and wool fabrics to create that luxurious feel of warmth. Wearing these on a cold, winters day seems like a dream.

They come in a variety of 4 colours, all warming colours that seem fitting for the cold weather that we are always promised to expect.

Although BWGH are a relatively unknown brand, they have proved a hit within the fashion world with their famous knitted logos.

They are definitely worth a look on: (http://www.togsandclogs.com/collections/brooklyn-we-go-hard) or (http://www.bwgh.fr/en/collection.html)

My interview with Malmo London.

I sent some questions over to the Malmo London designers and have just received their answers! 

 

 

– How did it all start? What made you decide to make the collection?
It all started with  2 guys who wanted to start a clothing brand, without forgetting our roots.  We have quickly gained a loyal following as we care about the people that work for us and the young creatives we actively support. We never want to be a nasty corporation, using sweatshops and laughing all the way to the bank.
– I see that you like to take inspiration from the streets? Is there anything in particular that you look for or is it just whatever’s there?
I like to throw myself in. Get a cheap flight, get lost in a city, meet people, visit galleries, peoples studios- that’s my biggest inspiration. It doesn’t have to be limited to looking at clothes. That’s why the collection is sporadic- no-one wants to see the same old sh*t season after season.
– What’s the main difference between Swedish streets and London streets? (If there are any differences).
Personally I find, Sweden is very classy, homely & functionally focused. Whereas London is more gritty and spontaneous. Its great to bring together ideas from different areas, including Nepal; where our products are manufactured. A lot of inspiration has come from there as well.
– What sort of things do you look for when you put together Mo Monthly?
We look for aspiring creative talent. Be it music, design or indeed fashion. Something fresh, original & forward thinking.
– What’s your main piece of advice to the young designers out there that want to start out in design?
Ask yourself, “what’s stopping me doing this?”. Don’t be afraid of putting stuff ‘out there’. If you have confidence in yourself and a vision going forward, you will inevitably succeed.
