City lights
Scoop and the City, 24 to 26 July – Old Billingsgate, London

By Isabella Griffiths

18 July 2016

This month, boutique trade shows Scoop and Scoop London will come together under one roof in one of London’s historic riverside locations, Old Billingsgate, under the banner ‘Scoop and the City’. 
 
It’s a one-off vacation from the shows’ usual home, the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, which is hosting the Rolling Stones retrospective Exhibitionism, but an equally spectacular setting for the stylish and exclusive event. WWB takes a look at some of the labels and international designers that are making an appearance at this season’s special edition. 
 
 
Pinghe
London based label Pinghe was launched by award-winning Chinese fashion designer Ping He. Whilst working for Alexander McQueen and Aftershock, Ping began gaining both critical acclaim and celebrity fans, before branching out with her debut eponymous collection in 2012. The collection combines leather with sheer and structured silhouettes. 
 
 
Sherene Melinda
The London-based, South African-inspired designer handbag label is making its Scoop debut this season. Sherene Melinda offers handbags made with the brand’s signature authentic springbok hair-on hide and luxurious leathers both inside and out. The newest collection introduces their first unisex bag, a cosmopolitan rucksack with a clean silhouette, and optionally includes the addition of a leather laptop case. 
 
 
Kirstin Ash
This season at Kirstin Ash sees the delivery of new gemstones and delicate geometric designs in precious metals. Layering with Kirstin Ash jewellery is a key concept of the brand, creating a look for everyday luxury. 
 
 
Maya Magal
Maya Magal is renowned for its sleek and contemporary style, focusing on graphic lines and the brand’s trademark intertwining of silver and gold. It’s an understated aesthetic with unusual sequences throughout the designs. 
 
 
Diego M
Diego M offers iconic and glamorous luxury outerwear, with lightweight summer down jackets, gilets, fine leather jackets and stylish raincoats and trenches key in this season’s collection. Making its debut in Harvey Nichols for a/w 16, the brand is looking to extend its reach in the UK further across selected indies. 
 
 
Knitss
Knitss is a contemporary knitwear brand focusing on effortless luxury through use of the finest materials and flawless workmanship. Chic and unexpected yarn combinations characterise the range, which is made in Europe with high sustainability and ethical codes in mind, while colour also plays a central role in each collection. 
 
 
Varley
Varley is a contemporary lifestyle brand founded by native Londoners Ben and Lara Mead. Directed from their offices in Los Angeles and London, the label is known for its prints and mesh details, which are changed every season. All Varley performance styles are made for exercise, featuring honeycomb construction for breathability, sweat wicking/quick dry and four-way stretch. 
 
 
Harris Wilson
Summer 2017 at Harris Wilson will be a fresh, graphic collection with an ethnic folk touch evoking travel. The colour palette takes inspiration from the Californian landscapes and desert with sunshine prints and ochre shades. Mixing a 70s vibe of raw textiles, linens, cottons and organic fabrics, the silhouette is feminine and cool. 
 
 
Lamb 1887
The heir to a fourth generation leather empire, founder Charlotte Lamb brings a wealth of experience from a business originally established by her great grandfather, an artisan cobbler, in 1887. Lamb 1887 handbags are therefore crafted from the softest leathers, carefully sourced from the highest quality tanneries across the globe, with every bag showcasing a luxury finish. 
 
 
Des Petits Hauts
Spring/summer at Des Petits Hauts is a bright, eclectic mix of easy to wear pieces. The collection focuses on garments that can be layered together – think brightly coloured cotton/cashmere fine knitted cardigans worn over printed silk shirts and dresses, while printed cotton jumpsuits and trousers are mixed with chunky cotton jumpers and cardigans.
