One of my designers to watch is New York based gentleman William Watson. Marrying the suited look with something dark and delicious, this lookbook has innovation engraved all over it. The suits are sinister and twisted, with sharp jagged detail in the collars that look like dagger weapons, and blood red jackets that spike out puzzle shapes and shoulder detail. The victorian style ties take a life of their own, juxtaposing perfectly with the corseted and restrained vibe that comes from the taped up face. There's an infectious intensity about the restrain from the clothes, as if the model is bubbling with rage that Jekyll and Hyde would relate to. Without doubt a name to watch, check out more of the collection at http://www.williamwatsonnyc.com/
And in my own current style stakes, I've deflated my quilted farmer jacket in favour of a puffa jacket twist. The recent Versace campaign introduces leather quilting which has a sticky sweet appearance to it, and my Dexter Wong jacket offers something different too. Maybe it's a bit 'East 17', but I love the puffa jacket pop.
