A peek at production for Autumn Winter 12

Nicole and I popped out yesterday afternoon to pay a vist to our highly skilled, creative (and like the rest of Tribe Nixie, a bit camera shy) seamstress Sev at her studio in Stoke Newington...we were thrilled to see how beautifully things are shaping up with production for autumn winter 2012.

For the season we were inspired by the concept of contrasting a bohemian vibe with an urban setting. We love the contrast between the austerity of concrete and the elaborate luxury of nature. We set our shoot in an underpass down the road from us in Hackney marshes, an environment that perfectly expresses our concept for the season.

Sev working on one of our sailor blouses in her studio.

Sev's machine with her clever little device for keeping pins handy.
Threads, fabrics and putting in a seam on the sailor blouse.
Some of our pleated cardigans, 100% wool & embellished with hand dyed heritage crochet lace.
The ones with one pink sleeve are particularly awesome. We love some pieces so much it is a bit of a wrench to part with them!
We love the vintage oilskin that covers Sev's cutting board and the eclectic collection of rock n' roll and travel memorabilia she has decorated her studio with.
We came away with the accessories that have been finished & we can't wait to see the rest of the collection take shape...Many thanks to Sev for letting us share her workspace with you all.

Nixie Clothing's autumn Winter 2012 collection will be in store from late August at Harvey Nichols, selected boutiques world wide, of course from and at our boutique in Chatsworth Road,  Hackney E5.


  1. Love the detailing - the Sailor blouse puts me in mind of a matador...
