No:Wear fashion design, Camden

This store isn’t exactly “new”, but I discovered it last year when I visited the UK, in Camden Markets. Everywhere I looked there was clothing I loved, with burlesque, punk and Victorian influences.

No Wear is the brainchild of Austrian designers Doris & Max. It started off with a crochet collection – this mightn’t seem to exciting, til you think how well Rodarte did with the loosely knitted/crocheted look a few years back.

AS they state: Our range, a mix of various styles, i.e punk, burlesque, goth and current fashion trends aims to achieve an ” ELEGANTLY WASTED ” look.

Hah, no wonder it resonates with me so much. It is clothing for clubbing and being seen in.  I invested in a gorgeous neck collar/mantle, a similar style of which you see here, the Zulu Neckpiece; mine has a pleated ribbon edge so it looks like an Elizabethan Ruff.

If you’re daring, try the H.N P-skirt – in pinstripe, it had a very gangsters moll look about it. Fantastic with a camisole top or frilly bustier.

There are also puff sleeved boleros and amazing neck collars, buckled industrial tops and burlesquey mini skirts:

And there’s gear for guys

There’s a greater array of goodies instore – the webstore has only a selection – and this is one case where you have to visit them to see their work in all its glory. So if you’re in London, hop over to Camden Markets and check them out!
