LFW: Charles Anastase

Theme: Mystery Jets - Flakes (click to download)

Charles Anastase first found acclaim as an illustrator, then graduated from photographic stylist to designer with the help of a grant from the French Ministry of Culture. Previous collections have been inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the Great Depression and his cat. After showing in Paris for the last 3 years he has come to London, which I don't find too surprising after seeing his misshapenly engaging frills, flounces and layers. Having fully embraced dark monochrome for winter, I'm already looking forward to brightening up to beige, peach and putty this spring.

"My inspiration comes from fairy tales, psychoanalysis and art. It is a quest for beauty."
