British award-winning designer Samantha Cole in association with Virginia Bright ENTERTAINMENT will be debuting her latest collection at Nolcha Fashion Week: New York presented by RUSK on Wednesday 13th Feb, 2013 at Chelsea Piers, Pier 59 on 18th Street and the West Side Highway at 7:30pm.

Mark Holgate of American Vogue has declared Samantha Cole London as one of Britain’s “Fashion Forward Designers” and the line has also been featured as one of Italian Vogue’s TALENTS, she is definitely a designer to watch.

SCL draws influences from modern day trends without completely relying on it for the direction and purpose of her collections.

Kerry Bannigan, CEO of Nolcha Fashion Week, shares “I am thrilled to support the debut of a fellow Brit’s latest collection into the USA market and be able to provide the professional platform that such a fast growing independent brand needs.”

The A/W 2013 Collection “A Linear Nights Equation” drew inspiration from a back to basics formula of math. The mathematical equation graph was the basis for the simple and uncomplicated shapes created. It also inspired the brand’s debut print range which consists strictly of linear shapes.

Creating this Linear inspired collection began by using the “NIGHT EQUATION” graph accompanied by slopes and 3D linear equations. This is the focus and dominant feature that can be seen throughout the collection.

The “NIGHT EQUATION” set the tone for the monochrome color palette with a hint of tonal sunrise producing for the first time a slight warmth to the collection. The linear equation which is based on lines forming shapes also inspired the textured pieces from the suede hand knitted dress to the basket weave knit skinny trousers.

While the collection has far less textured fabrics as in previous seasons, it is richer in its use of leather that runs throughout the collection, other fabrics include suede, cashmere wool blend fabrics, silk, jersey and knits.

Arthur Mandel, President of Nolcha Fashion Week, comments “Thanks to the support of our presenting sponsor RUSK, we are able to offer cost effective options for independent fashion designers to showcase during New York Fashion Week; including international brands like Samantha Cole London.”
