Using materials equalling real fur in feel and quality, designer Hannah Weiland incorporates patterns, bright colors, and — most importantly — a sense of femininity and fun into her faux fur coats, biker jackets, accessories, and color-blocked vests in her AW22 collection.
Shrimps AW22 is inspired by
alternative youth subcultures, used in contrast
with the classic Shrimps femininity.
Shrimps is a fashion label from London-based designer Hannah Weiland, launched in 2013. Weiland takes her inspiration from the witticisms of modern art and a playful engagement with pattern and texture, drawing on her background in History of Art and a diploma in Surface Textile Design from the London College of Fashion. With origins in statement faux fur outerwear that catalyzed global conversations on cruelty-free fashion, Shrimps collections quickly expanded to include now-emblematic beaded accessories, followed by a full ready-to-wear offering.
Shrimps AW22 is inspired by alternative youth subcultures, used in contrast with the classic Shrimps femininity. A bold color palette, studs and naively drawn, dark medieval characters which represent the overarching theme are offset with cherry and floral prints, feminine dress shapes and a heart lace fabric. The collection has introduced a range of new biker jackets, a Shrimps take on a classic trench coat, tartan faux fur jacquards, kilts and new knitted vests and printed jersey. Jewelry focuses on a combination of studs, faux pearls and cherry motifs.
