LONDON FASHION WEEK-CAROLYN MASSEY (Menswear)

LONDON FASHION WEEK S/S 10
SEPT 18TH -SEPT 24TH 2009 (Somerset House)


CAROLYN MASSEY (Menswear)
Carolyn Massey has once again used Tabio men’s socks to complete her S/S 10 collection for London Fashion Week.


Carolyn is a recipient of the British Fashion Council’s inaugural NEWGEN MEN award – sponsored by TOPMAN – supplying showcase funding and the opportunity to use the official BFC show venue at London Fashion Week’s Somerset House on Wednesday 23rd September, 2009.

Leading menswear stylist, Simon Foxton, was styling the show and Carolyn was very interested to be able to explore any opportunity to work with Tabio again.

A detail obsessive, Carolyn Massey is known for her quintessentially elegant English cuts and details – her work concentrates on what it takes to be a gentleman, and how this has been appropriated during times of civil or social unrest.

This season, Massey – inspired by a recent trip to the Kent headland village of Dungeness – moves her collection towards the outdoors. Quaintly dotted with fishermen’s huts and boats, Dungeness, with its eerie landscape of stark contrasts, also plays home to a dominating nuclear power station and imposing lighthouses. “Heroes of Telemark” - a film based on the true story of Norwegian heavy water sabotage in World War Two - too helped to form the backdrop of the collection.

Accessories also feature more heavily this season, after being well received on the autumn / winter 2009 catwalk. Massey has branched out into a small bag collection, belts, key rings and troddles. Traditionally used by the German Army, troddles were employed to place, with precision, the regiment of soldiers and their whereabouts. In addition, Massey is influenced by the craft of Kumihimo, to create cotton ropes and braids.Mainline Carolyn Massey stockists include: Opening Ceremony (NY, Japan, LA), ASOS.com, Assembly (NY), Daniel Jenkins (UK), La Bergerie (France), Baron Y (Paris), Juxta Position (California), MAPP Belgium)

‘Carolyn Massey for Lens at Topman’ is available in the London flagship, New York, Tokyo and Russian stores, as well as online at Topman.com
