FashionBite Interviews On|Off Designer Lee Lapthorne About His SS12 Collection

Lee Lapthorne SS12, What inspired the Lee Lapthorne SS12 collection?

The AW11 collection sold really well, so this season was really an evolution of that. I was inspired by the organic bone-like features of the blooming Wisteria which grows along my cottage wall at home. The collection is abstract and dark and features my own photography as well.

Lee Lapthorne SS12, Can you describe a few key pieces?

The reversible waterproof poncho continues to be a key piece. The collection includes fabrics such as cotton, raw silks and waterproof umbrella materials, which are embellished with my photographic images. Images are asymmetric and organic.

Who wears Lee Lapthorne, do you have any celebrity fans?

Jo Whiley is a fan and she wears Lee Lapthorne to festivals (which I love!), along with Jessie J. I also have many dancers and performers who buy direct from us on locations

Who would you love to see wearing your collection?

People with style and personality.

Where can you buy Lee Lapthorne?

In London Village Bicycle, Numbernine and Beyond the Valley. Worldwide stockists are located in Hong Kong, Barcelona, Zurich and Singapore, but also you can order direct from the website at www.leelapthorne.com.
