Boutique trade show Scoop London closed on a positive note earlier this week, with the show’s second edition labelled a success by exhibiting brands, who praised the international visitor profile, with a strong turnout in particular from buyers from China, Italy, Russia and Ireland, amongst key independent, high-profile department stores and e-tailers from the UK.
Once again Scoop London delivered an original mix of exclusive ready-to-wear, accessory, footwear and lifestyle labels which continue to define the signature of the carefully curated show. WWB takes its pick of some of the labels that stood out:
Under the new creative direction of renowned designer Madeleine Press, Antipodium offered an appealing mix of wearable silhouettes, great quality textures and quirky prints, with the brand’s coffee culture graphics among the stand-out items.
The famous French fashion house made its show debut with an impeccably tailored and beautifully wearable collection, with elegant dresses, coats and shirts among the highlights. Delicate prints rounded off the range.
