Corrie Nielsen’s contemporary clanswoman

Corrie Nielsen’s fall / winter 2012 collection hasn’t been the only one at London fashion week (LFW) to dabble in plaids and tartans: nor do we expect it will be the last. For Nielsen, though, inclusion of rich tartans in combinations of red, green, black and white was more than a passing whim; it was the foundation of the whole collection.

Inspired by her Scottish heritage, Nielsen’s beautifully constructed marriages of traditional patterns and tailoring techniques with avant guard shapes and details makes for fine viewing. Well researched (the collection takes the title Vestiarium Scoticum after a controversial 1842 book of illustrated clan tartans) and equally well executed, Nielsen’s thematically glued-together collection is a promising one for her burgeoning career.
