Fanny and Jessy, friends and design duo based in Shoreditch, London have caught our eye with their AW12 collection ‘Sea Foam In Your Eyes’ and now we have fallen in love with their style! The line definitely has a distinct unisex elegance to it that would be targeted towards the more daring girl, one who is likely to pull off boyish silhouettes and have a street wear vibe about her.
We love that nothing from the line is overly feminine; ‘sexing up the tracksuit and casualising the evening dress’, Fanny and Jessy have reinvented luxury sportswear at its best. Seeing androgynous, crisp style silhouettes such as loose track bottoms, sweaters, oversized blazers, bombers jackets, sweats with hoods, luxe tees, sheer chiffon buttoned shirts and leather perforated shorts along with a sporty duffle bag, the line forms gorgeous masculine tailoring with feminine twist that is very appealing.
Also paying attention to detail with their textures; using thick felt wool, soft micro suede, waxed cotton and golden zips. Our favourite aspect is the use of the perforated leather fabric featured on nearly all of the garms; on shoulders of tees and jackets, collars of shirts, pockets on trousers and shorts.
Not to forget or overlook the wonderful colours and prints used that have clearly given inspiration behind the title of collection 'Sea Foam in Your Eyes'. We see minty greens, pale pinks, soft greys and total blacks utilised in the form of psychedelic prints that clearly reference and idealise back to ‘sea foam’. The prints were created both digitally and in form of tie bleaching that have ‘given a contrast between the unpredictable & organic, and the precise & repetitive.’
