After spending some time studying in Madrid, British born designer Delphine Wilson returned to the UK to study Fashion knitwear. Her first collection after graduating from Liverpool John Moores sold to Harvey Nichols. Pursuing this success, she went on to study at U.C.E and sold her MA graduation collection to prestigious design store Browns (London).
She has since expanded her label over several seasons, to include stores such as L’Eclaireur, Joyce, Podium & Penelope.
Over the last 3 seasons - showrooms in London, Milan and Paris have added over 40 prestigious stockists worldwide.
The success of Delphine Wilson’s unique brand of knitwear is due to her quirky, unconventional approach to design. She combines a sculptural approach to garment construction with a healthy disrespect for traditionally ‘homespun’ methods - she maintains the craft, but subverts the message.
This results in garments that have been ‘engineered’ by craft, but strongly promote non-conventional construction techniques and unusual surface interest.
All Delphine Wilson hand knit production is strictly carried out in Europe & the UK.
Over recent seasons’ the Delphine Wilson label has grown internationally through exhibitions in Paris and Milan.
Some past & present stockists:
Joyce (Hong Kong), L’Eclaireur (Paris), L’Eclaireur (Tokyo), Susan - The Grocery (San Francisco), Podium (Moscow), Penelope (Italy),
