London-based Cypriot born designer Alexandra Hadjikyriacou created her brand House of Had in 2013 specialising in complex knitwear. Having moved to London in 2007 to study Fashion Textiles at Central Saint Martins, Hadjikyriacou took her love of craftsmanship and colour and combined it with her inspirations from cross-global cultures and civilisations to create bold, intricately patterned knits. Drawing on her own background for its aesthetic, Hadjikyriacou incorporates complex patterns into her ready-to-wear collections and renders them in bold yet refined colour palettes. Abstracting classic construction techniques, House of Had collections feature relaxed silhouettes, graphic woven jacquards and unique knitting techniques.
The SS16 collection titled ‘Nobody Knows Who You Are’ is inspired by Cyprien Gaillard’s ‘Nightlife’ and Sebastien Schipper’s thriller ‘Victoria.’ Oddly animated flora and plants in urban landscapes inform the collection’s dark digital prints that have been developed on lightweight silks and cottons whilst mysterious trees appear in technical weaves and woven jacquards in different weighted threads to highlight an urge of colours to break free. Capara continues to challenge silhouette this season with exaggerated shoulders, oversized jackets and structured dresses. Fluid skirts are evocative of the tendrils of smoke in Gaillard’s ‘Nightlife’ whilst the Olympic spectacle fireworks are translated in the collection’s bold red, yellow and blue colour palette.
