Scoop International London autumn 15

The hottest autumn 15 womenswear labels on show at Scoop International in London on February 1 to 3.

Purotatto

Italian premium brand Purotatto (meaning ‘pure touch’) launched five years ago and is looking for its first UK stockists this season. The brand’s basics are made from a milk protein fibre (casein), making it soft to touch and suitable for those with certain allergies. This yellow top wholesales for €39 (£29). Aside from basics, standout pieces include a patterned 100% mohair jumper and a grey sweatshirt with pocket detail made from cotton on the front and wool at the back (€99/£74).

Wholesale prices range from €34 (£26) for a basic T-shirt to €160 (£120) for a cashmere jumper.

“Overall I’m quite impressed, it seems simple and classic. Everything seems higher quality this season. We don’t often buy at the shows themselves - we try to follow brands for a couple of seasons to see if there is that progression.”

Ryan Johnson, director of Woods Designer Clothing in Maidstone and Chatham, Kent

“I’m thrilled with how it’s going so far, people have said it’s the best show we’ve ever done. The reaction to having a second show to coincide with London Fashion Week has been positive. With one date there were always some collections and brands I missed. I think there will be different brands and buyers at each show.”

Karen Radley, founder and managing director, Scoop

“We’ve being coming to Scoop since it opened. It feels like there’s more of a buzz this season, because there is more here. It was a pain getting into a cab to go to the other location - this is much better. I’m looking for something different, and for jewellery.”

Sam Rolfe, owner of contemporary womenswear boutique Concrete Catwalk in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex

“It’s brilliant to be in one venue. We come as some international brands don’t have UK showrooms or agents, so we do place orders. We’re trying to find something exclusive, as well as more established brands for the website. It launched a year ago and we’re trying to evolve it so we’re buying for it separately.”

Jeané Simpson, buyer for Mrandmrsstitch.com, owned by Belfast independent Rio & Brazil
