We love Halloween here at START and couldn’t be happier it’s fallen on a Friday this year. We’ve had our hands in bowls of sweets and have been listening to the Monster Mash since 10am.

Shop the edit

This year we’ve made an edit of some of our favourite Furrr-eaky pieces in store for a bit of shrieek style inspo. (Sorry!! We can’t help ourselves). So whatever you are doing tonight, whether it be watching the Nightmare Before Christmas at home, or off raving in full costume; HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

After such a successful Christmas window it seemed only logical to ask architect, Katherine Cannon to come back and help us conceptualize our Halloween display for 2014.

Accompanied by her friend Frances Ulph, the pair came up with a truly magical and bewitching creation. Drawing influences from Native American icons they created fantastical animal heads surrounded by a murder of crows (how appropriate).

Concept Drawing

No trick, this window is a serious treat and we are proud as punch of the girls for coming up with this one. Swing by Rivington Street if you are in the area and take a look for yourself. Don’t forget to tag @startlondon in your pics too!

“ Start has always been special to me and Philip and Brix have always supported me. Being a neighbour and having once worked at START, like the name suggests, it seemed like the best place to start! ” – Ross Hancock

Inspired by a childhood spent travelling the globe, Ross Hancock, designer of contemporary demi-couture brand Le Ross, has always been captivated by the romance and rock ‘n’ roll world of fashion. Hancock’s undeniable talent was first revealed to the UK when he appeared as a contestant on Project Catwalk in 2008, and was established once again in 2010 as he became Esquires first ever best dressed man in Britain, highlighting his innate sense of style.

Mr. Start Woman Crew Neck Sweater // Le Ross! Printed Pleated Skirt // Comme des Garçons Large One Zip Pouch // Somerville Fur Pom Pom Key Rings

A true craftsman, everything Hancock creates is made entirely by hand, using only the most exquisite couture fabrics with a keen attention to detail, cut and finish. All his garments are cut using only a ruler and a pencil, no pattern blocks.

To welcome Le Ross to START, we will be hosting an event at our womenswear boutique on Thursday 9th October from 5.30pm – 8.30pm. Guests will enjoy delicious cocktails courtesy of Martin Miller’s Gin and music by the talented Louise Hayter. Ross Hancock will be on hand to introduce his collection, available exclusively at START. If that wasn’t enough the first 20 Le Ross purchases will also receive a complimentary goodie bag full of premium treats including a Hemsley + Hemsley cook book, a Diptyque candle, a Cleo B travel wallet and Metcalfe’s popcorn.

The exclusive collection will be available to buy in store and online from next Thursday, but if there’s anything you’d like to know in the meantime please email style@start-london.com or call +44 (0) 207 033 3951. See you next week!
