Richard Quinn’s hotly anticipated collection for department store Debenhams has landed in-store and online and features one of fashion’s most talked about new designer’s bold floral signature prints.
The collection ranges in price from £65 for a satin midi pencil skirt to £125 for a bandeau full-length evening dress with train. For customers for whom the florals might be a touch too bold Quinn has also designed a bardot neckline midi dress in dark red velvet a blue velvet mini dress with the same neckline, which features throughout the collection.
Quinn shot to prominence in February of this year when the Queen attended his first on-schedule catwalk show at London Fashion Week to present the designer, who produces his own line collection at his print works in Peckham, South London, with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.
Fans of his collection include model of the moment Adwoa Aboah and singer Rita Ora and he also designed Amal Clooney’s look – a floral train printed on foil paired with slim navy pants – for the recent Met Gala.
His main line is available at high-end retailers such as Matchesfashion.com, NET-A-PORTER.com and Liberty, where prices for dresses can hit £2,500. He said the collaboration with Debenhams, which forms part of its Designers at Debenhams initiative, would bring his designs to a new audience.
“It was an effortless collaboration and it’s always nice to have different entry points. Perhaps the girl who doesn’t shop at NET-A-PORTER or Matchesfashion can now have a Richard Quinn garment that is still intrinsically ‘us’,” he said.
The Industry recently interviewed Richard Quinn on behalf of Epson, whose technology Quinn uses to produces his mainline collection. Read the feature here.
