Showing at the intimate setting of Soho’s Kettner hotel, Lou Dalton presented a collection with nods to the Shoreditch lads and gentlemen from the bygone era. A designer with great interest in craftsmanship, Dalton graduated from Royal College of Art in 1998 (where she now teaches on the same MA course), and has been causing quite a stir with her sleek, British-inspired menswear. For this season, she looked to traditional hunting clothes to find expression for her grunged-up dandy. Quilted gilets, jodhpurs with velvet patches and cable knits were only a few of the collection’s highlights, resuling in a look that would work just as well in the East End as in Eaton and the British country.
