London Calling: Silk Knitwear Designer-- Lyonard

Introducing: the English Designer Lyonard 

We first stumbled upon this incredibly talented designer through a simple Tweet: "Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman."-Coco Chanel. We knew our tastes aligned and after 
noticing he was also based in London, we decided we wanted to find out more. Here is what we learned from Lyonard himself, who is (by the way) making his debut during London Fashion Week! He agreed to tell Club Fashionista a little bit more about his collection. We found out the following:

He is not only incredibly talented but is very well accredited: Lyonard was educated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp as well as the Chelsea College of Art and Design. Lyonard set up his eponymous label in 2013 with a collection featuring the highest quality knitwear, constructed from finest mulberry silk, linen and mercerized cottons, in a neutral colour pallet with elongated shapes that run throughout the collection. The inspiration throughout his collections are drawn from psychological patterns and anomalies of human behaviour. 

His Debut Collection at London Fashion Week: 

The debut collection is being displayed through felicities at the premium ME Hotel in London during London Fashion Week SS 2014: (9th-30th September). Lyonard presents the début couture collection "Folie à Deux – a madness shared by two." 

The collection is an anthropological study of mental disorders. Folie à Deux is a psychiatric syndrome in which symptoms of a delusional belief are transmitted from one individual to another. This is explored in the collection through analysing twins, and demonstrated through mirroring, shaping, hiding, pleating and tucking.

The couture collection of dresses features the highest quality knitwear, constructed from finest mulberry silk, linen and mercerized cottons, in a neutral colour pallet. Elongated shapes run throughout the collection, which is inspired by gowns from Victorian mental asylums, and features innovative techniques in 3D pleating, tucking and modern lace.
