Sophie Hulme - a modern spin on classic

Young British designer Sophie Hulme gets her inspiration from the things she collects with a passion; living in a converted toy factory must help also for infusing more creativity into her designs. In fact she intends to brand her collections as collectibles by using every each season a distinct motif. For autumn/winter 2012 toy dinosaurs were replicated on patterned knits, lace embroidery and golden metal charms.
