Selfridges has announced the designers it has selected as this year’s Bright New Things, deemed to be “fashioning a brighter future” by working sustainably. Nine fashion designers have been selected, working across womenswear, hats, knitwear, leather, menswear, swimwear, denim and T-shirts. Among the designers is Unmade, the knitwear brand we recently worked with on a series of illustrated scarves.
The designers are each given a window of the department store’s London flagship in which to display their work throughout the year.
