BAFTA Announces Breakthrough Brits 2017 in partnership with Burberry

Last night FAULT attended The British Academy of Film and Television Arts, commonly known as BAFTA announced their twenty standout talents in film, games and television. Revealed in partnership with fashion mega-house Burberry and hosted by FAULT Magazine Issue 24 star Maya Jama, the evening saw industry veterans gather to celebrate and impart their wisdom on the twenty budding talents. This year’s initiative is also supported by The Langham London and Audi UK.

To be named a Breakthrough Brit is an accolade to take seriously; since the launch of the initiative in partnership with Burberry back in 2013, winners have gone on to do great things some even collected their very own coveted BAFTA awards.

2016 winner Malachi Kirby (see his interview with FAULT here) career has gone from strength to strength as we’ve seen him ear the coveted part of Kunta Kinte in 2016’s retelling of Roots, a role previously played by Emmy nominated actor LeVar Burton.

The initiative doesn’t just cater to those within the film industry as is commonly thought, Games artist Anna Hollinrake appears on the list for her artwork featured on mobile VR game Lola and the Giant.

Similarly, Creative Director Henry Hoffman whose game Mush has already earned him both a Dare to be Digital competition and a BAFTA Cymru award and now he takes his place as a breakthrough brit as he continues to blur the lines between developer and creative.

Selected by a jury of industry experts including FAULT Magazine Issue 9 star Will Poulter and FAULT 27 star Reggie Yates – the diversity of the expertise speaks volumes for just how much talent there is and at such an early in their careers.

This season was a departure on many levels for Chief Creative Director Christopher Bailey, with what looked like his most conceptual collection so far at Burberry.

Digging deeper into who Bailey is as a designer – his influences, points of view and creative expression – made for an intensely personal collection that was infused with his love for Yorkshire artist and sculptor Henry Moore. Speaking as a fellow Northerner, seeing Moore’s sculptures on the catwalk gave me a nostalgia for visiting the Yorkshire Sculpture Park as a child, the same memory that Bailey fondly recalls of while growing up.

As a whole, the colour palette was a deviation from Bailey’s love of colour with a muted palette of black, white, grey and faded blues (taking inspiration even from the artist’s own workwear wardrobe). Bailey used Moore’s un-proportional aesthetic to change the shape of the body with a lot of asymmetric and deconstructed pieces. There were curved shoulders on tweed jackets, round exaggerated sleeves and military jackets with prominent hard, angular shoulders.

Discovering and interjecting his own personality through the lens of Burberry’s 161-year history, Bailey sent a down the runway a series of sculptural capes in what was a stunning finale. Remaking Burberry’s most historic piece in plastic, crystals, lace, feather and pearls. An unforgettable and defining collection for Bailey in what marks his second See Now, Buy Now collection.

FAULT Magazine London Collections: Men SS17 Round up

The “big guns” of London menswear: Burberry, Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen et al dominate press coverage of the bi-annual London Collections: Men, and the new rising stars of British menswear who truly drive the capitals creativity and break new boundaries in their gloriously subversive challenges to the status quo, are often overlooked. For SS17 we at Fault are going to celebrate the kings and queens of the London underground!
Chinese wunderkid Xander Zhou has garnered a cult following amongst the London menswear pack. His playful irreverence, fondness for Americana, and toying with the traditional notions of gender, makes every collection of his somewhat of a show stopper. This season Zhou moved further into androgynous territory with an ethereal collection that melded the soft with the hard. The key words were sex and rebellion, and bare skin was wrapped in chains, over which shirts billowed like gowns, and halter neck corset style tops blew us away. A subversive genius, the designer takes traditional menswear staples, and creates something that is completely the opposite. Zhou is creating a new urban uniform for the gender fluid generation; this is a revolution that is not going anywhere.
Young British designer Bobby Abbley is another master of subversion; his favourite toy is anything Disney. This season the designer took on Aladdin, and presented a colourful and fun yet strikingly powerful collection. It’s wearable sportswear that shouldn’t be wearable, but Abbley has a habit of doing the impossible; kids clothes for grown ups because deep down, aren’t we all Peter Pan and Wendys? A signature Abbley sweater with the face of ‘Genie’ was a welcome sight, as was the playful nod to Xtina’s ‘Genie in a bottle’; “Rub me the right way” emblazoned on one of the coats shown.
Matthew Miller is a designer who is stealthy, season by season, becoming the one to watch in London. He is the designer for this generation, a man who like his peers, is facing the torment and angst of modern life, and conveying that into powerful collections that are statements within themselves. For me, Miller was a punk poet this season, because that’s what this talented designers collections are; poetry in sartorial motion, with a punk message. He offered a refined take on the gender fluid mod uniform for which he is renowned, incorporating misfits, skinheads and rebels. These are the kids you wished you hung out with. He is unique in his ability to present a collection that is both aggressively anarchic, yet subtlety romantic; I mean who else would interpret acid washed denim with a screen-printed interpretation of John Constable’s A Study of Cloud and Sky?
Father and son duo Casely-Hayford continue to go from strength to strength, and SS17 was yet another tour de force! They are truly stars of British menswear who design eminently wearable collections touched with genius! Taking each of their most significant musical influences (rock and grime) the two seamlessly merged the diverse styling to create a beautifully tailored collection of exquisitely clashing separates that would make any man look like a king. This season also saw the introduction of some beautiful womenswear pieces, part of a new personal bespoke service.
Sibling made the bold move of combining their men’s and women’s collections (as did several other designers) this season, signalling a departure from LFW in favour of the ever growing LCM. The aces of knitwear did not disappoint: British beef and skin, skin, skin, and even some peek a boobies; the designer duo’s cheeky irreverent knitwear designs payed homage to 50’s Americana rockabilly looks, and the good old English seaside. Imagine the cast of Grease, in a seaside ‘caf’ Margate, and theres the picture postcard that Sibling presented for SS17. Oh and real men, wear crochet and lace! The designers took there post show bow sporting Remain tees voicing their support of continued Eu referendum ahead of the upcoming vote, and a double bravo for the show soundtrack inclusion of Mariah’s ‘Fantasy’ both apt, and it had the whole audiences heads bopping!
The dark lords of British fashion: the inimitable KTZ,once again took over the notorious XXL club (if only the frow guests knew exactly just what had gone on in that space the night before!) to deliver a very wearable collection of their signature warrior goth wear. It was a more wearable collection this season, again offering their take on the post modern dystopian uniform. which drew inspiration from “dark futurism of interstellar science fiction and romanticism of celestial maps” – looked as if it payed homage to the underground rave scene of Berlin, as leather, PVC and Nylon arrived in abundance, styled alongside harnesses and chains, which added a signature element of fetishism to the collection. Hooded boys in seriously sinister embellished masks set the tone, and we even saw, brilliantly: leather skirts and dresses. KTZ also offered up their take on the lux sportswear/ lad look with baggy football style shorts and bomber jackets emblazoned with star cut outs. Oh and we must make mention of those metallic shades! KTZ again showed London and the world, why they are at the top of their game, and lead the way for the new aesthetic in men’s fashion.
Liam Hodges is one of the London designers flying not so quietly under the radar. His deconstructionalist designs, like those of Alex Mullins, challenge the ways in which we view traditional menswear and the accepted sartorial norms. Collaborating with famed American workwear brand Dickies, Hodges presented a mash up of 90’s hip hop styles and sporty streetwear, that he then reinterpreted that into sturdy, and very masculine workwear.. Hodges is designer who manages to do the impossible and make what shouldn’t theoretically work, werk! The “Im OK” message emblazoned on certain pieces was a cute finishing touch; perhaps a nod to The Simpsons misfit Ralph?
We took time to deliberate on the best of the brightest up and comers and the aforementioned designers are the ones to truly watch in London. We were honoured to view their collections and watch their stock rising!

FASHION MONTH IS FINALLY OVER: Here’s the trends you will need to know

By Sara Darling

Fashion is going raving with a nod to neon.

Pack your glow sticks for SS15, as this summer’s neon trend is not going anywhere! If you missed the boat this summer (or indeed the eighties!) several designers were re-living their youth with flashes on neon suitable for Goa-n beach parties or hot long nights in the city. Fyodor Golan provided highlighter-marker stripes and ostrich feathers, whilst Christopher Raeburn and Ashish worked up multi-coloured frenzy; Lucas Nascimento proved that doubling up is not such a bad thing, with a double dose of orange- having the same mind set is Emilia Wickstead! For accessories, Sophia Webster mashed up clashing prints and rainbow textures, while Markus Lupfer journeyed to California for his super brights ‘surf dudes’ collection. Let’s hope next summer is a hot one! Neon goes so well with a suntan!

The 70s glamour puss

The 70s have dominated the men’s catwalks for the past two seasons, but now the womenswear designers are claiming the decade with my fave picks showcasing flattering flares, bold prints and glam rock platforms. Check out designers including Tom Ford who’s rock chick collection is perfect for Kate Moss or Mossy wannabes! House of Holland featured 70s loud prints on shirts, dresses and skirts in a mixture of that classic vintage curtain palette of yellow, green, red and orange. Matthew Williamson’s catwalk show at the BFC show space was stacked with 70s references: halter necks, jumpsuits and maxi dresses- perfect to embrace your inner hippy.


Denim like you’ve never seen it before

Burberry Prorsum is always a popular London show. It sets trends that become instant classics, and SS15 is no different. Creative Director Christopher Bailey wowed us all with his new denim trench coat, alongside cropped denim jackets and denim with feathers- some more practical than others!

Marques’ Almeida took inspiration from the 90s and the drama of songstress PJ Harvey by incorporating black metallic denim in part of the collection, for a grungy feel for summer. Perfect for sitting under a tree and writing poetry! Joseph on the other hand did oversized double denim. In the disused industrial show space, the loose shirts, frayed edges chunky jumpers and leather were layered up to accentuate the moody mood.

Meanwhile in Paris, Kenzo did supersize denim, with wide legged pants, midi length skirts and ¾ sleeve jackets. Perfect as separates as it becomes a little last season pyjama-party as a full look. Even Milan, the capital of sophistication, mixed denim with drummer-boy jackets and silk kimono jackets at Gucci.Post-Burberry-Prorsum-Womenswear-Spring-Summer-2015-Collection-Look-17JOSEPH_ss15


Flower Power

With flowers never going out of fashion, somewhere across the globe designers nodded to the 60s, 70s and nineties at the shows this year, but the floral print was definitely given a 21st century makeover.

It is never a surprise when the humble flower is on trend for the spring/summer season. After all what summarises the spring more than a blooming bulb? However, this time the floral trend is a little different, with 3D floral embellishments leading the way for SS15. Erdem featured 3D floral patterns, and House of Holland featured tops and dresses with 3D floral embellishment designs.

Paul & Joe gave us pretty florals AND stripes (two trends in one!) and Sarah Burton at McQueen showed us a collection inspired by traditional kimonos, complete with leather, buckles and graphic floral motifs. One can only hope the very enviable lace up gladiator sandals will go into production too.

On the other end of the spectrum, Viktor and Rolf showed very wearable loose floral separates, and in Milan, Marni went bold with daffodils, daisies, lilies and chrysanthemums playing a big part in the the garden party collection. Achew!! Now where did I put my hayfever tabs?


Technology Students

With designers out smarting themselves in the field of fabric development, it is great to see how engineering is fused with fashion to make some anti- sports, sportswear designs. Richard Nicoll used mesh and fibres and H by Hakaan Yildrim worked cylindrical shapes and hexagonal motif on skirts and outerwear. Marios Schwab’s collection was an architectural adventure into fitness and travel, and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi led the body con trend in scuba style fabrics and made dresses look sporty and sexy! The Whistles collection was inspired by grown up street wear, as was the new kid on the block, Nasir Mazhar who knows how to make a crop top. Alexander Wang re-interpreted sportswear with bodycon dresses, high-heeled pumps and sporty accessories- which you don’t need to wear at the gym.

Even the humble parka was brought back to life at the New York shows, with a makeover by J. Crew and Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Hugo Boss offered us a safe and completely wearable take on the polo shirt.



Gingham girls

Stripes and checks make for a Little House on the Prairie trend with New York leading the way. Diane von Furstenberg showcased flirty dresses perfect for the French Riviera, and bound to put a spring in your pedicured step! Oscar de la Renta is as glam as you can expect, and his checks took a large, pastel turn. Shorts suits coupled with loose oversized jackets are perfect for layering and pretty enough to see you through any weather and Lela Rose showed us that checks don’t have to look like your granny’s tablecloth in her version of the spring summer two piece! And if you need any extra assurance, check out Altuzarra- perfect for the sexy girl. The gingham silhouettes unbuttoned just enough to tantalize and a silhouette designed to flatter. Whilst the Italian powerhouse Mui Mui took us on a trip to a John Walters film with 50s inspired pencil skirts and housecoats.

In London, we did it slightly differently and Ryan Lo presented a knitted version in a sugarcoated pastel palette and Lulu Lui gave us vertical stripes – if you have the legs for it! Or spend the next five months getting those legs into check!

Burberry – LCM SS15





The sun shone for the Burberry show this afternoon in their usual glasshouse space in Kensington Gardens stripped back for an open air show with British music newcomer Ben Clementine accompanying on piano.



The laid back agenda continued with casual suits in muted dusky blues, mustard, plum, camel and navy. Oversized satchel bags, scarves loosely thrown once around the shoulders and giant lookbooks carried under the arm were scrawled with a handwritten-style font with words such as ‘exploration’, ‘adventure’ and ‘fields’. The crucial accessory however were the felt bucket hats on every model’s head.


Matchy-matchy head-to-toe colour was relaxed by pairing with multicoloured trainers, ready for a summer spent in the great outdoors.

LFW Feb ’14: Day 4 AW14

FAULT‘s fashion team hit the catwalk shows and backstage at London Fashion Week (Feb ’14) to bring you our favourite pieces from the Autumn / Winter 2014 shows. Stay connected – on TwitterFacebook or right here on FAULT Online – for our round-up of the designers and trends that we have our eye on.


 Roksanda Ilincic


Is it safe to assume that come AW14 the colour Royal blue is going to be EVERYWHERE? Here it cropped up again in Roksanda Ilincic’s new collection. The pieces looked strongly influenced by modern art with staggered hemlines, interesting, angular draping, with strong use of colour and blocks of colour with sheer panels plus angular pattern repeating throughout. Stripes made a subtle appearance and could be seen on the edges of hems, around collars and and on the larger patterns of the clothing. Thick woolen, luxurious-looking pieces made way to a confetti dress made up of shards of colour, this then continued more subtly onto the other pieces that followed in the collection. Cute flat shoes and ankle socks reigned supreme, as did gorgeous chunky gold belts leaving us with a vision of the thinking woman’s wardrobe.

The Osman A/W14 collection was a beautiful collision of the Middle Eastern- Moorish prints, Byzantine blue, dusty Moroccan pink- with the surrealism of Europe in the 1920s. These influences played off each other beautifully, with sleek, minimalist silhouettes allowing for intricately ornamental embellishment, surreal embroidery, and exotic details such as sashes. The palette was bold without being too much, with shades that felt well-researched and prints that seemed authentic. It felt that this collection really took a journey and paid tribute to the nuances and intricacies of another culture. Yousefzada laid out a new shape, with asymmetrical hemlines and skinny cropped trousers that seemed a nod to Raf Simons at Dior. The surreal details – bold eyes and manicured hands – did not impose, instead adding a lightness and playful quality to what was otherwise a very heavy, luxe look.  From full evening dresses to separates and accessories, this is a collection that will translate well both in print and on the shop floor. On the runway, the richness of colour and print made a striking impact, but the finer details of the texture and elegant tailoring really took this collection to another level.

Marios Schwab


In what felt like a much more commercial collection for Schwab, which felt less focused on the red carpet and more about bringing the label into the closets of modern women, an edge of cool could be seen throughout. With a play on hemlines, structure and with most of the hemlines super-short, this was a focused collection from someone who knows their target audience well. Leather jackets, bomber jackets and capes were slung over pretty dresses or leather trousers. Sheer layers with elegant shapes and even trains featured in the catwalk show, there’s something in this collection that would appeal to everyone and that, lies in it’s success.

Words by Rachel Holland




Erdem’s collection took on elements of the 1960’s with references of fine couture and heritage techniques woven into delicate fabric, with the designers signature flowers and blooms. With many of the pieces having a purposely unfinished feel. The attention to detail, as always expected with this label, was exquisite. Gold, black and cream brocade sat alongside wet-look coats and jackets for an interesting contrast. Some coats and dresses were unexpectedly slashed at the elbows, sheer panels popped up at the neck and the focus on embroidery and embellishment could be seen in each piece. Far from being stuffy, this is a modern Erdem glimpsing at the past while striding forcefully into the future.

Words by Rachel Holland


David Koma


David Koma’s show was a slick affair, with each piece being well thought out, edited back and refined so that the brand’s message was completely clear. That the Koma woman means business. Open-toed boots or shoes clad every model, the boots of note being the knee-highs – giving the outfits a feeling of restriction yet freedom. The first looks that entered the catwalk were a rich purple in a complete body colour-block – a bold statement. This led to grey to white to black and finally to pops of royal blue. Caging detail and harnessing revealed hints of flesh, looking decidedly stern, yet, the full skirts were more of a feminine, pretty detail. Leather and ‘angular lace’ however were far from pretty, creating a bold, strong statement that despite the dominatrix overtones, look surprisingly wearable.

Words by Rachel Holland


Burberry Prorsum


Burberry was a painterly affair this season with botanical prints on bags, scarves and jackets with more than a passing nod to the artists muse or the 70’s bohemian, which is an unusual spin for AW14 but one that we can thankfully embrace. The longer skirt lengths, the cinched waist and the easy, draped shawls, blankets and sheepskin coats made for a high-class aristocratic mood, but one where the heroine runs away with a penniless poet, painter or musician. The monogrammed scarves, the caped trench and the hand painted bags will no doubt sell out fast as the must-have buys for the new season. The pretty delicate dresses and the wearable, statement coats will undoubtably be do well amongst the labels core fans. The Burberry powerhouse is showing no signs of slowing down, so it was fun to see Bailey having a lighter mood this season and looking to the bohemian for his inspiration, we applaud it.

Words by Rachel Holland


Peter Pilotto


This was a pleasant surprise from Peter Pilotto this season after previous seasons displaying a more restricted and refined aesthetic. There was colour and print and lots of it, having varying levels of success in some pieces more than others. Literally every piece was unexpected and just when you thought that you had the collection ‘fixed’ in your head, a new equally dazzling look would emerge down the catwalk. An alpine print was used to great effect in both a dress and a padded suit, the sporty, patterned coats felt extremely ‘now’, whilst the colourful patterned detail picked up where Mary Kantranzou has left off and took us in a new direction. I loved the slouchy layering of contrasting patterned knits, more so than the earlier pieces, I can imagine the effortless comfort of wearing these looks and yet looking totally wild and eclectic at the same time. Despite reading conflicting reviews elsewehere, this collection gets a big thumbs up from me.

Words by Rachel Holland




Giles is the designer who we can rely on to represent the cool British girls. This season he focused on playfulness and anarchy. The show was set in a dark car park in the East End of London to set the mood, with strobing lighting to add to the overall rebellious ‘Giles’ vibe. Punky looking girls strode the catwalk, with Brit model, Cara, snapping selfies of herself and the front row, creating an iconic catwalk moment. The theme was rebellion, the clothes either tropical bright, lime tartan or monochrome. Hummingbirds were the motif of the collection, trickling out towards the end as bugs crawling the edges of cocktail dresses. It did, as a whole feel a bit haphazard, however there were coveteable pieces in there, namely the capes, the long straight dresses, the leather items and the shorter dresses. The accessories will be perfect for wearability alone – long, leather gloves, huge scarves and punked-up boots will add an instant update to any winter wardrobe. Giles’ previous seasons are hard to follow, however we have no doubt that the best is yet to come.

Words by Rachel Holland




Showing a wicked sense of humour, Tom Ford took a cultural reference and spun it on it’s head with his upgraded version of the ‘Tom Ford 61’. A knockoff top that’s been doing the rounds in sub-culture – Ford’s now turned into a glittery party dress. The rest of the collection felt 60’s and a bit rock n roll with a sombre mood. Monochrome featured heavily throughout the collection, with splashes of bold red, copper and leopard print. There was a big play on textures with sequins, leather, velvet and wool. Of note were the long velvet dresses, so casual and wearable, yet so high-end at the same time. They could easily be dressed up for the red carpet with some striking jewels or down with a pair of rugged biker boots.

Ford proves season after season that’s he’s a master of the catwalk. With a huge celebrity turnout, plus using big name models such as Karen Elson, Liberty Ross, Stella Tennant and Georgia Jagger during his show, his pulling power is clear to see. And that’s the reason why we keep coming back, because we just can’t get enough Tom Ford in our lives.

In the last year, KTZ has reached a whole new level of iconic brand identity. With the likes of Rihanna and A$AP ROCKY on board, the label has swiftly made an imprint upon the mainstream with its monochrome palette, bold prints and edgy proportions. In this vein, it can be easy to assume you’ll know what a KTZ show will look like before it comes down the runway. However the label somehow continues to challenge its own aesthetic, finding a new innovation whilst satisfying its cult following. This season the look was a sort of Medieval-Bionic-hybrid, with tabards and tunics in the form of oversized and embellished shirts and dresses, worn with leggings and trousers in beautifully manipulated silk and leather. Ribbed leather leggings had the look of machine parts, whilst jackets and tunic had a heavy luxury, weighted with geometric jewel patterns and studs. For their menswear presentation this season, the label sent models down the runway with snow-shrouded faces and this Arctic influence carried over; from the puffa jackets to the Doctor Zhivago hoods in pale silk lace. To put it simply, this was yet another triumph for a label that is already taking the world by storm. Who knows where they will be by next season?
