As budding songstress Jezzabell Doran (you may have heard her work with Flume’s Sleepless) charmingly recited her own poetry,  Neo Dia‘s Summer 14/15 collection took to the MSFW runway featuring woven leather, painterly pink and the surprising addition of cork-board. Post-show I coaxed one half of the label, Gavin Lowes, to spill something about next Winter’s yet-to-be-revealed designs; “we’re playing with gradients and sheers and just cool beading.” Neo Dia always have quite cerebral origins (often maths or science) for their work but the beading is a new realm. “We’ve only done it once before in a really abstract way with stacked beads” says Gavin. For this element of the next collection they’re working with artisans who count the likes of Chanel and Givenchy as clients. “It’s going to be very textural” adds co-designer Becky Chua.
