One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art - Oscar Wilde

All New

Today saw the launch of Tout Nouveau, a Leeds based initiative aimed at showcasing new and young designers and offering them the opportunity to sell their creations online.  The website includes both men's and women's apparel as well as a 'lifestyle' section incorporating contemporary artwork, which turns it into more of an interesting online concept store. Of course as the pieces are not mass produced (often there is only one item available), it is a perfect opportunity to get your hands on a truly one-off piece as well as supporting fresh, home-grown talent. Here are some of my personal favourites from the collections.

Speckle Print Dress by Kate Atkinson
Silver Bird Skull Ring by Frankii Tonge
Marble Bones Print T by Rachel Browne
Leather Studded Biker by Gemma Francis
Unisex Off-white placket shirt by Yuco Kamiyama
Bad Astronomy by Sam Piper
