The Countdown

The Countdown

>>**EDIT** Have added prices and names…

>>I got my dates bungled up and this post was really supposed to go earlier as a preview to what will be available on the ASOS Ltd 100 project site – quick recap, 100 pieces by London College of Fashion students go on sale on ASOS TODAY at 1pm with all sales going back to the students… the last project sold out in two minutes hence why I was trying to be smart and all that by posting preview pics…

So bungled is this post that I have no prices and I only remember a handful of the students' name off by heart so again, that information will have to come later… a rough guideline me thinks is that pieces will range from ¬£50-¬£300.  There's a rather scary clock thing counting down and there's less than four hours left…

I've already posted about overall winner Tian Wang whose jacket and trousers will be on sale…

Tian Wang, Digital Print Jacket £250, Digital Print Trousers £160


The brass accessories on these pieces are the perfect accompaniments…

Cecilia Ku Wun Ting, Oversized Blazer with Brass Belt £180, Zip Back Coat Dress with Arm Bands and Brass Trim £200



Prism prints…

 Para Manko, Digital Print Shift Dress ¬£200, Placement Digital Print Shift Dress ¬£200



This jacket felt really good on and the fringe is suitably heavy too…

Kate Underwood, Fringe Detail Leather Jacket £300, Fringe Detail Leather & Wool Dress £250



Ah…the Pepto Bismol coloured leather trews…

Joanne Jones, Zip Back Leather Trousers with Detachable Ankle Straps £200


Kiran Kumar Gobi, Pleat Detail Giraffe Print Zip Dress £150


Seung Woo Lee, Padded Sleeveless Dress £150


I loved the colours in this whole collection… the softness constrasted with the lazer cut squares…

 Alicija Aputyte, Laser Cut Detail Kimono Style Dress ¬£150


Natsumi Zama, Shoulder Bow Detail Dress, £200


The sh
oulders on this dress are a bit like a rubix cube…

Yunwei Jiang, Shoulder Detail Long Sleeved Print Dress £100, Origami Pleat Detail Print Skirt £120



Lon Yin Paris Chan, Digital Print Pocket Detail Blazer £100


Fannie Sciavoni, Chain Detail Print Dress £120


Miriam Ridha, Printed Sheer Shift Dress £100


Anna Rachel Hobbs, Button Through Layered Tie Front Dress £100


Menswear was dominated by Kwung-Hwa Kim, designer of the two jackets below, who won the menswear prize…

Kyung Hwa Kim, Sleeveless Drop Shoulder Jacket £300, Drop Shoulder Long Sleeve Coat £280



 Vinita Ram Nagpal, Ruched Back Grandad Shirt ¬£50 – apparently a little too reminiscent of a Henrik Vibskov shirt according to one commentor…


Rachel Esswood's scarf weighed an absolute ton but it supremely well crafted…

 Rachel Esswood, Oversized Hand Knitted Scarf ¬£150

    one might call those leather trews, coral, no? I’m surprised you’re not gasping over them given your coral ‘thing’?!

    Hi Susie,
    I hope you’ll excuse the off-topic comment. I came to your blog late when it was already big & shiny and I’d seen you in only just stumbled across your ‘style diary’ images..lovely to see the beginning, faceless shots done in the mirror! I was just curious because there were only a couple of pieces that I recognised from you posting on here you still have most of those clothes? If so…your wardrobe must be immense! Particularly loved the photo of the Adidas swimsuit over the red YSL shirt! :o)

    Ali: Wow…that was a very old post you referred to there…. there is no special story as to why i had those ‘faceless’ images… basically I got a boyfriend who can take better pics than I can…
    I do still have a lot of those clothes there but I do routinely clear certain things out and give them away to charity shops… I think I actually lost that red shirt somewhere along the way when I moved house…

    ive manage t buy the Quilted Leg Patch Trouser.
    pity that they didn’t offer much selection in the mens section.

    I’m hopeless when it comes to clearing things out..I’m always convinced that I’ll ‘wear it one day!’ and get so sentimentally attached to things even though I own nothing expensive or designer….but if I had as many clothes as you I think I might have to have an overhaul every now and then. Seriously, where do you keep it all? o0
    Can safely say I’m now a true style bubble addict, it always leaves me inspired. Thanks!

    That shirt does look a fair bit like the Henrik Vibskov shirt, but maybe it’s just a coincidence – whether it is or not, it’s still lovely!
    I’m also madly in love with the Natsumi Zama camel dress – yumyum.

    I THINK I bought Fanny Schiavoni’s chain detail dress, but let’s see…. I admired her stuff in 127 Brick lane, so I’m pretty excited!!

    I was very tempted to grab those printed trousers (being one of the 30 things remaining when I got back from work).
    But alas, I put my sensible head on and could not justify spending that on something I probably wont get much wear out of.
    I hope you grabbed some good things to make up for me getting nothing, I expect outfit posts 🙂

    Lots of gorgeous things. Tian Wang’s collection looks great, however, I feel like it reminds me too much of Viktor & Rolf’s Fall 2002 Blue screen Collection. The imagery of sky, prints on the clothes which makes the clothes almost like a one piece yet 2 dimensional thing. If you’ve not seen that V&R collection before, it features clothes in blue. But on the screen next to the runway, the garment became a blue screen for projecting images/video on. Although the sky is not the focal point in their collection, there are plenty. I don’t know, it’s just my personal opinion that the style of Wang’s collection reminds me of V&R instantly.
