SEEN at the catwalk for LFW16:Ryan Lo SS17

Ryan Lo travels back in time to a fantasy land of carnivals and magic carpets for SS17. The collection was presented on Friday, 16th September, at the BFC Show Space.

Ryan’s life and work follows the consistent theme of romantic fantasy. Hong Kong-born and London trained, Ryan Lo draws his inspiration from current pop culture and childhood nostalgia. His designs are crafted with an unconventional DIY approach, having taught himself to knit from YouTube tutorials.

Since launching his label he has acquired a new level of sophistication, yet his rule-breaking, maximalist sensibilities still see him send an unexpectedly modern wardrobe down the runway. With his love for all things dreamy, Ryan’s SS17 collection has shone during the LFW catwalk, transporting us back in time to a fantasy land of carnivals and magic carpets.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
