I was browsing through the stands of the Vauxhall Fashion Scout last Friday with a Stylist friend of mine, when I saw this new cool brand called Ekaterina Kukhareva. I am always less than impressed with the new talent of London fashion scene as many of them lack the "commercial sense" so needed to succeed in today's economic climate.
My fears were wiped out in one second when I met Ekaterina's new collection. Ekaterina Kukhareva is a Ukrainian born designer based in London and her knitwear collection is fun, exquisitely executed and really sexy.
The quality of her dresses and knitwear is extraordinary and prices are quite affordable (average price is 300 pounds).
I particularly love this skirt (image below) which perfectly embodies this AW's pencil skirt trend. What more do you need to add? Of course, if you have a bit of courage you could wear it as per the model's picture of Ekaterina photo shoot but for more ordinary types like me a normal silk shirt will do just fine.
The brand also incorporates some headpieces in the AW11 collection (but I did not see any in the SS12 collection)
and if you are around Notting Hill, Ekaterina is stocked at wolfandbadger. How convenient!
Happy shopping Trisorers!
