JH Zane's zangels

Instagram is a dangerous (for my wallet) yet wonderful place (for my wardrobe).  Through it I have learned so many things (and not only drool over fashion, food and pretty pictures), and discovered many new labels and designers.  JH.ZANE is one such label, with images of his beautiful 'off-shoulder' frilled top floating around on Instagram, his designs caught my ever-so-curious eye, and I just had to find out more about him.

The creative director and designer behind the label, Juhao Zeng, is originally from Southern China but has been London-based for the last 10 years.  After graduating in 2011 from Winchester School of Art, Zeng (or Zane, as he signs off in his emails) trained professionally in Katie Eary’s and Gareth Pugh’s studios, whilst at the same time establishing himself as a freelance stylist with editorials published in different independent magazines, and is highly involved in the Fashion industry in London.  I recently came across this video featuring Taekwondo Olympic bronze medallist Paige McPherson wearing kicking butt in Zane's off-shoulder bomber jacket (which I absolutely love) and culotte, which was a collaboration between Mercedez Benz and the British Fashion Council.

Androgyny is the key style reflected throughout JH.ZANE’s designs, which as a label aims in getting back to basics, combining subtle details with classic silhouettes, new textures and print.

Quirky. Androgyny. Clean. Sharp. Tailored.

 LOVE this blouse, and I saw on Zane's Instagram that there is a matching skirt! Ah, love me a beautiful ensemble...

Finally got my hands on the top that first drew my attention to the designer, with the gorgeous matching culottes (how brilliant is its silhouette)? Love this ensemble, and both the top and culottes are now on sale (run, don't walk!)
