Needle & Thread have landed their second collection at ASOS, and it EXUDES full on gothic glamour. Follow in the rather ghostly footsteps of AW13’s slightly haunting shows from Vivienne Westwood and Proenza Schouler to the likes of Erdem and Mary Katrantzou and bring the trend: HAUNTING BEAUTY to centre stage. Heavily adorned dresses, mirror mosaic detailing, plush velvet and decadently jewelled necklines are just a few of the key particulars being flaunted by Needle & Thread’s latest offering. And, you’ve got to admit it - this is going to be a tough collection NOT to buy.
Behind the label is designer, Hannah Coffin, who built her career at UK labels Karen Millen and one of my all-time high-street favourites, All Saints. Every one of her pieces start out as a carefully hand-drawn design, and evolve, hand-embellished by skilled beaders and tailored perfectly within an inch of it’s very stylish, very old-school and decadent, life.
