Long have I recognised the synergy between Los Angeles and London in terms of culture and fashion, and this shoot For London-based Danish designer Peter Jensen, 2011 such synergy marks ten years of his label. He graduated from Central St. Martin’s in 1999, and has combined his talents with graphics and embroidery to create interesting, retro wearable designs with incredible detailing. His joyus aesthetic has been my wonderlust for a number of years. Jensen’s AW11 collection, above and below, is based around The Like’s Tennesse Thomas and BlackBlack’s Diva Dompe and was shot in LA with stylist Shirley Kurata and photographer Autumn de Wilde.
The collection was inspired by Danish actress Anna Karina with the collections pillarbox reds, textured whites, sky blues and charcoal greys, set alongside chic knit, combines Jensen’s signature style with a 60s aesthetic that screams simplicty and LA fused with London.
