DESIGNER NAME: Hind Matar
BACKGROUND: Bahrain native Matar studied at Central Saint Martins and the University of Virginia, later interning at the design studios of Bernhard Willhelm and Yang Li.
SIGNATURES: “A blend of bold confrontations and subtle interplay. Complementary contradictions of fabric, silhouette and embellishment.”
TRADEMARK PIECE: “Structured skirts, oversized jackets and tailored trousers.”
COLLECTION: “Instability, natural disasters, chaos and the absurdity of Willem de Kooning's women series. Ryan Sullivan's richly textured paintings - reminiscent of topographical maps, aerial photographs of landscapes, canyons, lava formations and corrosion.”
WHAT MAKES LONDON WOMENSWEAR SO EXCITING? “There is a relentless pursuit of fresh ideas, a coolness that permeates throughout, daring propositions and a fun and invigorating platform that is full of surprises."
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO IN YOUR STUDIO? “Primal Scream, Nicolas Jaar, Blue Hawaii, Rachmaninoff.“
