Its always nice to feature new collections, especially if they are made in the UK and when StephieAnn landed in our Inbox we thought we’d have to show you straight away.
This début collection is inspired by the poem ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’ by Dylan Thomas and designer Stephanie Woolven explained to us how her creative process works.
“The 2014 collection identifies with the poem, And Death Shall Have No Dominion by Thomas who expresses his belief in everlasting love and the notion that love never gives up, even through death. Through researching poetry and visual imagery I chose ice to destroy flowers in a poetic manner. The ability to freeze an object so alive in beauty and soul resonated closely with my interpretation and imagination. Although I eventually shattered and destroyed the flowers, my photography and drawings are still beautiful and ethereal, as is Thomas’ love.”
The lingerie itself is very British with lots of gorgeous floral prints that give off a relaxed countryside feel. Our favourite is the Applique Nighty which you can see below, the flower detail looks just like real flowers.
