Lauren Pullen Hand Woven Coat Details


I am by no means a violent person - I'm the kind of person who apologizes when people walk into me - but when it comes to Lauren's collection I've been practicing my elbow shoves and karate chops in preparation for bagging one of her collection pieces.

There's not one single thing I wouldn't wear, granted I may get the odd stare when waltzing* down the road in the giant brightly coloured woven coat but hey who cares when you look that darn fabulous. Lauren's 'woolen chicas' where the star of the show not a single camera phone wasn't in use when her collection came out, mine included.  The clever mix of hand woven blended fabric with latex scraps and the most jaw dropping shiny material (technical term i'm sure) bagged her a place on the shortlist for the Gala catwalk show. 

* Aka strutting their god damn funky stuff.

Lauren Pullen Hand Woven Collection

 

 Lauren Pullen 


‘The Last Stomp’ is inspired by a tradition that is evident in North Sardinia where village men dress up in costumes and wear large sheepskin coats, wooden masks and giant brass bells on their backs, transforming them into dark mysterious characters known as Mamuthones.
The village men dance and jump through the streets to take away the bad demons that may be present in the villages. Lauren has always been interested in exploring other cultures from around the world, her collection aspires to bring the darkness and showmanship of this tradition to the catwalk.

The hand woven organic textures inspired by the Sardinian culture are brought together with new synthetic fabrics, such as Latex and PVC creating a contemporary feel. The garments have been draped and folded to create a structural 3-D effect, inspired by the layers of different scaled bells from the traditional costumes.

Lauren Says:

When I look back at the journey i’ve had creating this collection it was very up and down, but that’s normal in this industry.
You want to push yourself and your designs so you create something you can really be proud of. There's a quote I had as my screen saver on my phone and laptop which is ‘Great things never came from comfort zones’ and it really motivated me even when I had to make those hard decisions.
I’m excited about what the future might bring, but looking forward to spending some well deserved time with my friends and family, however finding a job within the fashion industry is my number one priority.
I am thinking about the possibility of doing a MA in knitwear but I want to work for a year before.
