phannatiq are delighted to announce the launch of their aw13-14 collection, refraction; a characteristically savvy offering in exquisite cross town style

further drawing on their love affair with the vistas of london’s urban decay, refraction takes inspiration from the hi-vis, low profile people who hold our cities together

growing from their signature, androgyny infused womenswear, phannatiq are thrilled to introduce menswear to the collection for aw13-14 as well as jewellery by Nancy Mc for phannatiq

across the collections, phannatiq’s urban disruption patterns; collaged using images  of london and screen printed on hand dyed fabrics, adorn many facings, while also providing unexpected reverse, and trim detailing

phannatiq’s new direction for cross-genre attire continues with classic cuts, bold shapes and sassy anti-fit, and is agrown-up yet playful sartorial segue for the world’s pavement population

organic, unbleached bamboo, silk and cotton and harris tweed form the basis of the collection  with the elegant addition of panels  and trims using fig tree bark, recycled leather and locally felted cotswold wool

phannatiq’s materials are typically well credentialed; in line with phannatiq’s quality and sustainability standards, but for aw13-14, phannatiq are proud to announce their textiles are produced using only nat- ural plant dyes, and that they have eliminated the majority of chemical waste from the textile manufacturing process

currently in its fifth season and proud to be born, designed and manufactured in london, phannatiq is the brainchild of designer Anna Skodbo

a passionate fan and observer of style and self expression, and having been brought up within sustainable living communities, it is with uncontrived conviction that she implements traditional methods with no compromise on modernity, and presents refraction, an ethically conceived and produced collection for aw13-14

phannatiq are also pleased to be presenting their short film, exclusion, in the canon  cinema at somerset house, partnering with really creative media, and showcasing the talents of freerunner Mitch Lee this season, phannatiq is excited to be partnering with firefly tonics, who will be providing refreshment in the form of their new PET range; a delicious take on natural refreshment in a new bottle for grabbing on the go
