Presenting as a part of the Designer’s Abroad Showroom during London Fashion Week, the new collection marks the introduction of innovative techniques and practices for the brand. Pieces made from organic denim and sustainable leather feature throughout the range—and go hand in hand with the futuristic themes that inform the collection's aesthetic.
Here, we catch up with the women behind the label, sisters Cheryl, Vanessa and Gabrielle Manning.
Presenting at London Fashion Week for the first time… “It’s exactly the place we need to be and are grateful to be able to show the collection to a whole new audience.”
The collection is… “Sporty, tailored and futuristic.”
We’re inspired by… “The collection has the allure of the '80s contrasted against the minimalism of the '90s. There is a modern futuristic attitude that comes through in metallic offerings of fabric and hardware.”
Our favourite pieces… “The metallic pink rose jacquard blazer and pant for its glamorous take on tailoring. We love the surprise detail on the back of white contrast sporty lace.”
Introducing organic denim and sustainable leather… “Local manufacturing and craftsmanship has been at the essence of Manning Cartell since it’s inception. Sustainability and origin has been our next area of focus, hence the move toward organic denim and ethically sourced sustainable leather.”
