Season of the witch

While I am not a fan of horror in general, I have been somewhat taken by the American Horror Story: Coven teasers.

I’ve always been a fan of plain lines in clothing and the teasers are showcasing how to do this style very neatly indeed. It’s reminiscent of the Sabina Bryntesson SS12/13 collection, clean silhouettes, crisp collars and fabulous witchy hats.

Sadly I’ve never been able to find the collection (or those hats) for sale, but take heart, her linkedin page shows that she’s currently working as a design assistant at H&M on everyday, basic jersey and knitwear. I haven’t seen anything this season which approaches the level of austerity in her SS12/13, it’s deceptively hard to do well and not hugely commercial I suspect; even my usual monochrome standbys Garth Pugh, Rick Owens and Yohji Yamamoto have let me down.

Nicolas Andreas Taralis is the closest I can find, with a collection showcasing A-line skirts, high waisted trousers and collared shirts. I find the wide sleeves look a little busy myself, and the fishnet pushes it further towards The Craft that I’d like, so although it’s a credible effort I shall be keeping my eye on the H&M knitwear section just in case.
