Preening is what we’re all guilty of but Preen has come to mean so much more than just a verb in fashion. The design duo Justin Thornton and Theo Bregazzi originate from the Isle of Man and are partners in real life as well as fashion. Preen's cool designs are worn by the likes of Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and Gwyneth Paltrow. Feminine silk drape dresses with sports ribbed waists; the duo plays on their masculine/feminine differences to create a mix of hard/soft designs that work effortlessly. The London based brand shows on schedule at London Fashion Week described as ‘deconstructed chic’ and ‘minimal opulence’.

Even if Star Wars isn’t your thing Preen is a go to for modern feminine styles. The diversity of the collections is always impressive with digital prints, classic stripes and lace used in refreshing ways.
