George Angelopoulos













Did anyone else have a propper good nosey at all the amazing exhibitors at London Fashion Week?! I think I actually enjoyed the exhibition more than the fashion shows because there was such a mixture of creative design and you could get a good close up view of the products. There were a few in particular that stood out to me, one was the handbag designer George Angelopoulos. I was lucky enough to meet him and have a natter with him about the inspiration behind his stunning collection. He was so enthusiastic and excited about his creations and I can't blame him, they were freakin well gorgeous!

Top of my list is that gorgeous slightly larger bag that was held captive in the glass draw of the display case (6th pic from the top), i enterpreted the metalware as a skeletal structure but I suppose everyones translation would vary. I'd also happily settle for one of those luxe menswear bags in the pics 8th, 9th and 10th from the top (all from SS10).

I have borrowed the clippet below from his profile page on the London Fashion Week Website (here) as he explains it best what influences him and the type of consumer he designs for.

Design signatures: “The aesthetic is influenced by architecture and futurism, experimenting with geometric forms whilst creating innovative design. The essential feature of the label is product craftsmanship and precision finishing. Each piece has an association with an historical place, time or individual that presents a story to the customer."

How would you describe the George Angelopoulos woman? “She has a strong personality, her own sense of style and likes to be adventurous.”

Name three things that are inspiring you for spring/summer 2011: “Architecture, early 20th century Futurist paintings and dynamism.”

How do you see the brand moving forward and developing?
“I aim to establish the brand and expand into different markets through hard work and dedication.”

Above are images from his SS11 collection, mens SS10 collection and snaps taken by me at the exhibition.
