Lu Flux Takes Eco-Fashion “Over the Hills and Far Away” for Spring 2011


Lu Flux’s designs are, in a word, magical. Winner of the 2010 Ethical Fashion Forum Innovation Award, the British designer marries salvaged and new materials with unpracticed ease. For Spring/Summer 2011, Flux drew inspiration from a Gustav Klimt painting that perfectly captured the blues, yellows, and greens of a country garden.

“I wanted to use fashion as a tool to portray fun and humor in a wearable way,” Lu Flux explains.

Yards of ribbon and custom toile de jouy feature prominently alongside Flux’s signature patchwork sculptures. Composed of surplus, organic, or end-of-roll fabrics, the range is as much an ode to spring as it is to joy. “I wanted to use fashion as a tool to portray fun and humor in a beautifully crafted, wearable way,” Flux explains. “And demonstrate that there is more to fashion than glamour and sex.”
