"On|Off Presents…" is a platform created to showcase emerging designers to keep an eye on. Jayne Pierson, Luke Rooney, Timothy Bouyez-Forge and Laura Thiess are SS17's ones to watch.
Jayne Pierson's fierce collection is characterised by an artsy DIY vibe and features bold hand-painted leather pieces and matching prints.
Luke Rooney plays with fun and whimsical designs embellished with mirror details, rhinestones, ice-cream patterns and pom-poms. In spite of the playful theme, the result is quirky but more edgy than sugary.
Timothy Bouyez-Forge experiments with pearlescent plastic and metallic PVC to create looks fit for a dystopian mermaid.
Laura Thiess, finally, presents a collection of intricate knitwear and lace and crochet patterns inspired by Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. The designs aim to convey a feeling of sensual passion and forbidden love.
