Craig Green considering womenswear range

Craig Green is questioning whether to do a women's line.

The British designer was the talk of the town during London Collections Mens, showcasing a range of colourful creations, and weird and wonderful uses of tassels.

While his designs are aimed at the male market, women have hijacked some of the clothes. Rihanna and FKA Twigs have been spotted in Craig's pieces, but that doesn't mean a ladies' line is on the cards.

"I always thought I wanted to do women’s but questioned whether they should be very, very separate or should the men’s feel like the brother of the women’s? For a long time I thought the women’s should be as if I’d just graduated and started from scratch. But now women are buying the men’s now, so… it’s a bit of a question," Craig mused to Matches Fashion.

The designer is still a newbie in the fashion world, with last week's show only his third solo offering.

He was shortlisted for the LVMH Prize earlier this year, but lost out to Marques'Almeida. However he is still in the running for the Woolmark prize.

Work never stops for Craig, who's a graduate of London's prestigious Central Saint Martins college, and he started planning his S/S16 collection as soon as his A/W15 show wrapped.

"At the pub after the show we were immediately thinking, 'What are we going to do next?’

"I think [the new collection] it’s really different. But I always think it’s really different and everyone thinks it’s similar, so…" he trailed off.
