If we can use the expression without conjuring memories of the 1980s, Trager Delaney
are THE new kids on the block. First season out and already they’ve scored stockists the likes of which many labels will spend many a season courting.
We’re putting it down to good breeding. Central Saint Martins graduates Kim Trager and Lowell Delaney first met on their knitwear BA degree course in 2007. From an instant connection, Trager Delaney was born.
Trager, a Danish native moved to London to pursue a career in fashion and has held tenures at Haider Ackermann, BVBA32 and Michico Koshino among others. Delaney, born and raised in London has previously worked in Paris and New York at Celine, under Phoebe Philo’s direction, Sonia Rykiel and Alexander Wang.
We particularly love that they hired the very of-the-moment Arizona Muse for their lookbook and then promptly cropped or otherwise obscured her face in most of the shots.
With prices starting at around £280 Trager Delaney is far from the high street end of town. If you’re the kind of girl who believes in investment pieces however, you can’t go past a debut pedigree label.
