3.Paradis AW 18 Entitled "EACH ONE TEACH ONE," the fabrics, finishes, shapes and details in the collection are heavily influenced by the 1968 youth counterculture and revolutionary ideas of the past and present. Collection photography by Fabien Montique parallels a series of corner photography taken by Irving Penn in 1968. Astrid Andersen Ready-to-Wear and Bespoke AW 2018 Buffalo-era London was the inspiration for both the RTW and bespoke collections, a mash-up between the decadent and the rave. Fabrics in the RTW collection include colorful silk jacquard, custom printed silks, tweeds, tartans, glitter organza and puffer fabrications. Saga Furs provided inspiration and technical support for the bespoke collection. Christopher Raeburn AW 18 Entitled "Immerse," the collection draws inspiration from the beauty and fragility of the oceans, with a focus on responsible design and sourcing. Royal Air Force helicopter winchman coveralls, parachutes, and Russian and Danish naval blankets are among the pieces reworked into contemporary fashion items. Raeburn partnered with both cold water surf brand Finisterre to create functional outerwear, knitwear and tees, along with explorer footwear brand Palladium to devise a range of innovative footwear that embraces Raeburn's sustainable design manifesto. 53
