Phoebe English is a luxury womenswear and menswear label creating garments with an attention to precision and beauty. Construction forms the centre of her design philosophy which embraces a consideration to highly laboured textiles. Inspirations for collections often stem from abstract origins such as a particular type of process or a feeling; this approach aims to infuse the work with a conceptual aesthetic, offering luxury through idea. This intricate balance between craft and design remains at the heart of each collection. Returning each season to lost, forgotten or little-used fabrication techniques, this respect for construction and the ‘mark of the maker’ aims to set the label apart from mass made fashion and trend led design - a permanence in the transience of fashion. The Phoebe English label is proud to be entirely ‘Made in England’.
Phoebe English was awarded the British Fashion Council, Fashion Fund Award in May 2016 along with the NewGen MENS award for her new Menswear line earlier in the year. The label can now be found in various international high-end concept stores, including, Dover Street Market London, Ginza and New York, Selfridges in London, I.T. in Hong Kong, Super-A-Market in Tokyo and the Comme des Garçons Trading Museum in Paris, and has just shown its 12th collection at London Fashion Week.
