Quick day trip...

.... to Denmark would be nice. As a new store is being opened by Silas of Soulland, they will be carrying House of Billiam so it would be rude of us not to venture over for the Launch party.

Carrying other brands such as Pendleton Woolen Mills, Ann-Sofie Black and of course us, with the visions of the Scandanavian boys it should be quite a store.

Did someone say House of Billiam x Soulland... oh-oh this could be good!

Slowly but surely. No substitute for hard work.

Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion

An exhibition celebrating some of my favourite designers work, with the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo, Issey Miyake and Junya Watanabe it should be quite inspiring.

At the Barbican.

Purple. Looks like a Starbust and quite edible.

HMMM Tasty ;)

We care about the young folks

Its not such a great idea to be making extremely cute high quality garments for the little ones when your feeling quite broody, maybe its the fact I'm making them that makes me feel this way. Dad and son same outfits, Jordan I for when he's 1 Jordan II for when he's 2 and so on and so on the concept of having a human Ken is a little absurd but come on it comes with the territory.

Ok well i'll just get a Dog.

Recent work

Well we have been pretty busy.

Firstly getting orders into production for SS11 mainly for Japan, whilst working on bespoke orders here there and everywhere! We did a jacket for Roll Deep to be worn at the MOBO's, a trio of varsity's for girl group SoundGirl, who in my opinion should be asked to come in for a personal fitting ;)

Whilst doing this I have been drawing up AW11 which I'm pretty excited about and would say its probably our first full collection which will consist of up to 25 pieces.
Keeping the fabric philosophy and very British aesthetic were hoping it will make quite a significant impact within streetwear, any way enough of the talk here are a few images:

No rest for the WICKED!

la Maison du Billiam

Bendy was recently asked to make a dress for a friend, being something very different to what we do... he took quite well to haute couture with tricky fabrics.

A very elegant high quality dress, it was executed quite well and being dress virgins we were extremely happy with the final product. We left the hem unfinished, the fraying of the silk was a nice design detail.

Womens House of Billiam on the horizon? Hmmmm.

One step at a time!
