Taking inspiration from the darkest depths of the ocean, Fashion Scout has taken a dive straight into its London schedule with Apu Jan's AW13 collection. A graduate of MA Fashion Womenswear from the Royal College of Art, his London-based education combined with his oriental interpretation of modern design has most certainly prepared him well. Aptly named 'Petroleum', the Taiwanese designer's new collection offered up an amalgamation of interesting knitwear that stayed true to his unique aesthetic. Referencing primeval oceanic organisms, oversized knit pieces were paired with draped fabrics where flashes of colour from belts and headpieces and the appearance of geometric design only added to the atmosphere. A colour palette of charcoal greys, and heavy blacks spoke of the destruction of natural fossil fuels whilst the imaginative, fluid approach to silhouette echoed that oceanic feel he seemed to capture so well.
