Here Comes Katharine Hamnett

So far 2011 has got off to a flying start for British cult icon and fashion pioneer Katharine Hamnett. Ever striving to convey her messages of political intrigue, SS11 sees the newly recognised Katharine Hamnett CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire), launch a new ethical luxury collection entitled HERE COMES THE SUN. Taking the name from a current populist subject - in recognition of the amount of free solar energy we receive from the Sun - Hamnett states we should “exploit and reduce our dependence on unsafe technologies”.
Inspired by her own groundbreaking archives of both the 80’s/90’s, SS11 sees the sartorial resurgence of glamour, elegance and sexuality achieved through rigorously sourced sustainable fabrics such as organic cotton and parachute silks, cementing Hamnett’s status as one of the most prolific ethical designers of our time.
