Trager Delaney AW13 Lookbook

Starring Arizona Muse as a Britishy-French babe.

London's Kim Trager and Denmark-born Lowell Delaney met while studying knitwear at Central Saint Martins before working at the houses of Celine, Haider Ackermann and Sonia Rykiel. No wonder their joint label Trager Delaney is so damn fine. Take their AW13 collection, whose accompanying lookbook features Arizona Muse. It's only the label's second ever collection together and they've already developed a distinct aesthetic that's both playfully feminine, while being timeless and futuristic, simultaneously. Call it British/French inspired, call it 40s-esque or call it simply awesome — they're all kind of correct, but it's not the full story. This collection was particularly inspired by an imaginary 18-year-old socialite who goes on a ski-trip with her parents, decked out in a mixture of her grandmas' 40s-style dresses and her own mink, neoprene and nappa pieces. It sounds all over the place, but it's actually the most concise and beautiful modern collection from a new label we've seen in a while.
