I am completely obsessed with Isolated Heroes new collection. COMPLETELY OBSESSED. Ever since Samantha McEwen released her graduate collection Voodoo Zombies 3 years ago, McEwen has been going from strength to strength. Taking inspiration from counter culture, regional traditions around the world and cinema has seen Isolated Heroes transcend fluidly from bold graphic colourful prints to pretty pastel and feminine cuts.
Her latest collection may be my favourite to date. Soft candy hues of bubblegum pink and baby blue with lashing of love hearts, faux fur and dalmatian print makes the latest Isolated Heroes collection the most unabashedly feminine to date. The look keeps that cool 90s alt girl vibe (any of her looks wouldn’t look out of place on The Face) with luxe oversized slouchy bombers, leather wrap skirts and fur trimmed heart print jackets. It’s super fun – which is one of the things that’s do refreshing about McEwen’s designs. Playful, cute and always on the cutting edge of the trend, it’s no wonder than Isolated Heroes is becoming one of the most popular emerging young designers from Scotland.
