Patricia Manfield takes H&M Studio SS17 to LFW
Singer and style icon Patricia Manfield gives us a sneak peek of the upcoming Studio collection – and a report from London Fashion Week.
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT LONDON FASHION WEEK?
”It's my first time at London Fashion Week. I just moved here as well. I think it's the most vibrant city and it's still kept that authenticity in art and fashion. I technically moved here to be inspired.”
TELL US ABOUT THE H&M STUDIO LOOK YOU’RE WEARING.
”It's easy to accessorise, it's elegant yet the most comfortable thing you'll ever wear. Those shoes feel like a second skin.”
ANY OTHER FASHION WEEK ESSENTIALS?
”White t-shirts, denim and crazy accessories.”
WHAT TRENDS ARE YOU SEEING THIS SEASON, ON AND OFF THE RUNWAY?
”The 80s are definitely back and so is the craziness in fashion. The mix of streetwear and high fashion is very interesting.”
TELL US ABOUT YOUR FASHION WEEK BEAUTY ROUTINE – ANY TRICKS AND TIPS TO MAKE IT LAST A FULL DAY OF FRONT ROWING?
”Stay hydrated, consider taking the Tube sometimes because you'll avoid traffic. Always carry a product in your bag that makes your cheeks glow, so you'll always have that healthy, fresh look on your face.”
YOU RECENTLY MOVED TO LONDON TO WORK ON YOUR MUSIC. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT IT?
”Music has always been part of my life, since my parents are musicians. My debut album is written by me entirely and it's a project I've been working on for two and half years now, to create my own sound. It comes out in the next few months.”
YOUR STAGE NAME IS HEIR, WHAT DOES IT STAND FOR?
”It stands for what I really INHERITED from my parents; music.”
WHAT SONG IS THE ULTIMATE FASHION SHOW SOUNDTRACK?
”Probably Loud Pipes by Ratatat.”
Patricia is wearing a full look from the upcoming H&M Studio collection. The collection will be shown in Paris on March 1 – catch the livestream on hm.com 9.30PM CET. The collection will be available online immediately after the show, and in selected stores on March 2.
