I’m so excited to chat about this new London based brand with you today. All eyes on… SHRIMPS! Shrimps is a newly launched faux fashion fur label by 23 year old designer, Hannah Weiland. As she told Vogue, “I called the line Shrimps, my nickname as a child, because I was small and pink!”
The coats have a very sixties mod feel and the designer currently offers a collection of coats and clutches available at Opening Ceremony, Avenue 32, and from Net-A-Porter this March! I love the bold colors of the autumn/winter 2013 collection (featured here) and can’t wait to see what’s to come in 2014. And, the best part? Hannah’s line is animal-friendly! As Vogue writes, “With the line taking off and being worn, unmissably, by the likes of Susie Bubble, Julia Sarr-Jamois, and Kate Foley, Weiland is operating out of a building that houses her filmmaker father’s company just off Carnaby Street, the former home of London’s groovy sixties.” With a love of color and faux fur, I know I’ll be adding SHRIMPS to my list of must-haves.
