designed in Hackney™

Designed in Hackney™ is the riveting initiative
launched by Dezeen, the online architecture and
design magazine renowned for its brand-building
vision ”to celebrate the incredible diversity of design
talent in the east London borough of Hackney.”

The event will showcase world-class design created
in the borough which is one of the five hosting the
upcoming Olympic Games (not to mention the
magazine's headquarters and several stencil 

works by Banksy) as a unique guide to the 
district's rich and diverse design community.
Among the borough's talents is the edgy knitwear
label Leutton Postle that garnered universal praise
as the Vauxhall Fashion Scout Merit Award
winner for spring-summer 2012.

A combination of the cofounders names, long-time
friends designers Jenny Postle and Sam Leutton,
the Hackney-based brand shows its playful AW
12-13 collection of knit-based garments for women.
Both graduates from august Central Saint Martins,
the duo collated experiences and skills gained from
working for boutique Browns Focus and in knitwear
innovation in China, respectively.

Leutton Postle's design embraces humor and color
through extremely detailed knits with original hand-made
textures and rich patterns from a wide range of influences
and inspirations. Blocks, illustrations, faces scribbled
with fabrics, reverse appliqué and tinsel make the whole
collection uniquely engaging, ironic and free-spirited.
Properly designed in the talents community.
