Patternbank met Carina Sohl at the highly creative experimental zone of Maison D’Exceptions back in February 2017 at Premiere Vision and were in love with the delicate beauty of her craft, mixing nature and eco-friendly technology, Carina transforms her wild gatherings into unique botanical patterns. Carina developed her craft from combining a love of nature with the material leather, discovered on a course back in 2006. The result is beautifully detailed and intricate patterns, each unique in their fragile leaves that are captured only once, to create one-off designs. Carina has collaborated with brands like the luxury fashion house Loewe and Berluti where her designs have been used on dresses and wallets. Follow her journey here on her Instagram account and on her website here.

The anticipation is building as the eagerly awaited Isabel Marant collection for H&M draws nearer. Parisian designer Isabel Marant has teamed up with high street store H&M to create this autumn/winter designer collection featuring clothing as well as accessories for women, men and teenagers. Patternbank have long been a fan of her effortless style where she mixes different elements in her collection to create texture and detail.

“I aim to create something real, that women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain carelessness, which I think is very Parisian: you dress up, but do not pay too much attention and still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude. Everything can be mixed following one’s own instincts: my take on fashion is all about personality” say Isabel Marant. The collection is available from November 14th 2013 in H&M 250 stores worldwide. Isabel Marant photos via Vogue.co.uk and Isabelmarant.com
