Currently Obsessed: THU THU
7 August 2012
I fell in love with her suede embroidered jackets, each one is completely unique, using specially crafted vintage fabrics from Vietnam, which were sourced from skirts and blankets in Sapa, a mountainous region in North Vietnam. These were originally made by women of the H'mong ethnic group when a new baby was born, taking several months to complete. All her other fabrics are made locally using natural dyes.
Impressively her first collection was snapped up by Browns and soon became their top seller. She is now on her fourth season and is stocked in the uber cool Village Bicycle in Notting Hill, as well as throughout Germany and Worldwide, with plans to expand to LA soon.
THU THU has really done so well considering the company is so young, this is blatantly because of her strong brand identity, I am thoroughly obsessed and am already trying to decide what pieces I want from the new collection!
Watch this space, this will not be the last you hear of this little design genius!
