Preen by Thornton Bregazzi
The urgency of the climate crisis is sharpening minds across London’s fashion community, but for this couple, implementing change is a matter of circling back to first principles. Thornton’s earliest job was working for London designer Helen Storey in the ’80s. “She had a collection called Second Life, which was made from repurposed existing fabrics—and that was my job, finding the materials, learning how to do it,” he recalls.
All Thornton and Bregazzi had to do was look in their storage space in Notting Hill to realize they had more than enough fabric to get that going again. Since their design aesthetic has involved using contrasting materials in the past few years, anyway, it was a no-brainer. “It means that some things will be limited runs—and pieces might be a bit different from one another,” said Thornton.
The designer had composed the collection from a mix of leftover fabric from previous seasons; sustainably sourced viscose; and, in the case of some of the sheer dresses, “georgette that’s made from recycled plastic bottles and textile waste.” “What?” exclaimed one of the models backstage as Justin Thornton explained the provenance of the beige semisheer dress she was wearing. “Well, yes—I didn’t know you could get georgette from plastic either,” Thea Bregazzi replied. “We are constantly asking suppliers if there’s a more sustainable alternative to the fabrics they’re offering. Better solutions are beginning to come all the time if you look for them.”
The designer thrives on assemblage—mixing and matching patterns and references into flirty ready-to-wear. You could pair the delicate slip dress with a pair of Doc Martens and hit the club, but the piece was also fit for a grown-up date night.

Jonathan Simkhai Spring/Summer 2020 Ready-To-Wear Collection- The designer’s lingerie lifestyle look added a twist to the now-ubiquitous notion of pajama dressing.
You might call it a lingerie-lifestyle look that Jonathan Simkhai has been cultivating over the nine years he’s been in business. His collection radiated feminity, showing the audience slip dresses, leather skirts, trousers, sexy bralettes. He wanted to focus more on an aesthetic look, playing with spring palette colors like tangerine, saffron yellow, coral, blue, magenta, and pink.
Every designer has a season or theme that they want to showcase in a collection and that’s what Jonathan did. “I embody that,” he tells to Vogue. “I always feel happy in spring, and I think that that joyfulness is something I can give to the clothes.” Simkhai Spring 2020 is definitely following the development of the 1980s influences, but puts it in a context of spring. The colors are bright, pastel and as sweet as you’d expect them for a spring collection. Mint green, lavender, peach, baby blue, pink and plum are some of the colors you find.
