Matty Bovan and the season of the zips

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I stopped by the London Showrooms during Paris Fashion Week and had a chat with Matty Bovan. He calls this his season of the zip. He uses lots of Liberty prints and was intrigued by uniforms and other utilitarian looks and introduced his first bomber jacket. One side of the showroom was his more experimental and the other side his commercial pieces.
