Work-Shop

04.07.2014 | Fashion | BY:

Work-Shop is a designer superstore curated in collaboration with creative magazine Oh Comely. The pop-up’s purpose is to encourage people to learn more about hand made processes; to introduce to the public a variety of exciting and sometimes undiscovered independent brands, giving us a more soulful lifestyle alternative to the many mass produced items currently available on the high street. Founder Michelle Oh, a jewellery designer with her own eponymous brand, temporarily moved her studio into the shop and not only can you find her creations displayed in the store, but you can take part in jewellery DIY classes to make your own. You’ll also find designer talks hosted by the people behind the brands involved, such as Draw In Light, London Tea Club, Elizabeth Dunn, Espergaerde, Project 104 Swimwear, Wickhams Concern plus more. Full brand list available here.

Twin‘s Fashion Director Celestine Cooney visited the boutique for one of the Work-Shop classes and designed her own ring (below). To find out more and to take part, head to facebook.com/work.shop.

Work-Shop is located at 6 Newburgh Street, London W1F 7RT until 1st August.

Draw In Light x Celestine Eleven

11.12.2013 | Fashion | BY:

Draw in Light, the British brand known for using free-hand silk screen printing to create beautiful motifs placed on minimal, elegant shapes and luxury silks and jerseys has turned its attention to homeware. To celebrate the launch of their first home collection, the design duo Polly Wilkinson and Harriet Barford have collaborated with the East London boutique Celestine Eleven. The luxury retail space created an exclusive line of homeware accessories that bear the signature Draw in Light prints. “The clothing is designed to be lived in and change with wear and the wearer,” said Polly and Harriet. “Draw In Light Home felt like a natural progression for the print, the beauty of homeware is it can be enjoyed everyday – not just once or twice a month like clothing.”

The collection itself was styled and shot by the Draw In Light duo themselves in the English countryside. It plays with a  palette of blue washes, cream and mixes the signature silks with wool and soft draping jersey. To get your hands on pieces from this elegant collection visit the Draw In Light Home Christmas Pop-up Shop at Celestine Eleven, open from December 5th-14th.

Seashores & Sailor Times

11.03.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Thanks to their refreshingly cool hand silk screen prints, ongoing collaboration with Twin fashion director Celestine Cooney and a special feature in our latest issue, Harry and Polly of upcoming label Draw in Light have won a special place in our hearts.

This season, the duo looks to have been inspired by moody sea landscapes and ship voyages. In their lookbook photographed by Ben Weller, breaking waves curl themselves across floor length-dresses, the first rays of sunlight add splashes of red colour to nighttime skies on T-shirts and pared-down versions of sailor’s knots make a reappearance on crop tops and shorts, resulting in a casually elegant collection.

Our verdict? Ahoy Autumn/Winter 13, we’re good to go.
