We get excited at Valstrom when we come across a designer with a finite vision of what their brand is and their consistency between collections. Because this is what builds a brand - a singular vision. Alan taylor is one such talent. Hailing from Ireland, Alan has shown with Fashion East's MAN show at LC:M for a number of seasons, having previously worked with various London fashion designers. The new collection for Spring/Summer '15 is clean and fresh, taking inspiration from indie music and the paintings of Jenny Saville, but Taylor has filtered his ideas into a tailored, textured aesthetic. The shapes are bold and subtle, colours muted and strong. A beautifully balanced collection from one to watch. We can't wait for more.
