The ones to watch

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Fashion - - THE INSIDER’S GUIDE -

Hav­ing worked as Ri­hanna’s madeto-mea­sure stylist (and as the cre­ative brains be­hind her River Is­land col­lec­tion), Texan-born Adam Sel­man knows a thing or two about sar to­rial state­ments. His own line, now in its fourth sea­son, has a charm­ing retro feel to it, al­beit with a neat shot of mod­ern at­ti­tude. Fur­ther proof that tap­ping-up a pop star early on in your ca­reer does you no harm, Lon­don’s Kitty Joseph worked with Lady Gaga af­ter grad­u­at­ing with an MA in tex­tiles from the Royal Col­lege of Art. Her colour­ful prints fol­low in the tra­di­tion of edgy Brit design, yet with a pretty, fem­i­nine touch. And for a/w15 knitwear the pro­gres­sive Ryan Lo has shifted slightly from his ebul­lient car­toonesque styling (he is a Hello Kitty ob­ses­sive) to pro­duce an ar tful, grown-up col­lec­tion with a la­dy­like feel – sheer lace and vel­vet pussy bows – although his trade­mark whimsy is still there in hits of candy-coloured knits.
