It’s no secret that Phoebe English is one of our favourite designers. With our lengthy editorial and interview in our fifth print issue as well as many online features.

Her Autumn Winter 2016 collection presentation took her usual brilliant design and added a performance value. The presentation having been superbly produced. Models ‘waited’ in a waiting room, each one taking a ticket and as their number was called, they presented their look.

Phoebe English always produces what I would call a ‘salon’ collection, which always makes her collections concise and interesting. There is never filler, and each look speaks for itself.

What we loved for AW16 was the subtle use of latex, Phoebe manages to be one of the only designers that can include latex delicately, producing a whole new aesthetic for the fabric.
